Dami Sushi and Korean Restaurant opened their doors in January 2021, almost a year after Vancouver’s initial lockdown due to the pandemic. It seems as though both consumers and businesses have accepted that the COVID regulations have become the “new normal,” as restaurant grand openings are no longer postponed.
The restaurant has been successful over the past year, withstanding the closures that other businesses have faced. Dami offers 10% off take-out orders and is available for delivery through DoorDash and UberEats.
I personally enjoy having a local Korean restaurant within walking distance from home and appreciate their portion sizes since I always have leftovers and don’t need to meal prep for the next day.
My favourite thing to order is their spicy pork rice bowl as it is packed with flavour and isn’t too hot for my taste buds. Insider tip: order the rice bowls instead of the hot plates because it is the same amount of food at a lower price.
I haven’t tried their Japanese food yet because there are so many good sushi places in RC and Dami is my local go-to for Korean food specifically. The next time I visit Dami, I’d like to order their kimchi stew since I’m trying to re-create this dish at home.
