Thanks to Loopp Media and Klip Magazine, we were invited to the grand opening of Kamei Royale at their new location in Coal Harbour at 1066 West Hastings. Kamei Royale used to be around Burrard and Georgia if you remember.
The event was packed so it was hard to really capture the interior space. A long bar is on one side.
They have a large selection of beers and wines.
This is only one side of the dining area. The new location is quite large and also features more private dining areas on the other side.
We were able to sample a variety of appetizers, sushi, and oysters.
We also got to watch the chef cut a blue fin tuna which weighed over 100lbs and to sample the melt-in-your mouth tuna!
Unfortunately, the place was packed and I was too short to capture any photos of the actual demonstration. I watched through other people’s camera screens… But here are some parts of the fish.
A Japanese lion dance followed to celebrate the opening.
I loved watching the sake barrel-breaking ceremony.
The chefs smashed the barrel and all those in the front row had a good splash!
Kamei Royale has their own brand of sake and it tasted delicious!
The restaurant is open to the public beginning Monday, June 27 for lunch only. Dinner service begins July 5.
