This past Saturday saw the Montreal debut for the Toronto restaurant group behind the wildly popular Guu SakaBar and Kinton Ramen. Yes, Kinka Izakaya is now open in the Faubourg.

A weekend visitor to Kinka and native of Japan offers this succinct postmortem: "Finally, Guu is in town. Real izakaya atmosphere."

James Hyunsoo, the CEO of Kinka Family Inc., told a few months ago that "the menu [at Kinka in Montreal] will be similar to that of Guu Izakaya and Guu SakaBar in Toronto."

Now, at last, a glimpse at that menu, divided between small starters, cold and hot tapas, salads, fried items, noodles and desserts. (Bold forecast: the likes of karaage, okonomiyaki and kaisen udon will play well with the Concordia University crowd.)
