» Fukasaku

Submitted What nominators are saying
5 days ago They are very "distinctive" from others because not only their food is superb, they source most of their seafood locally, supporting local business and fishery. It's also good to know that their seafood is environmentally friendly.
18 days ago Great food, excellent service and amazing special menu events!
18 days ago Best Ramen of the west. None of the other restaurants can say that!
19 days ago Great sushi, fresh, homemade , good service
21 days ago They focus on local sustainable Ocean Wise seafood. That what they serve and advocate us to consume. As far as their sushi is concerned, it's never disappointing. It is always fresh, first class, and is made with the perfection. Platters are always nicely decorated and I enjoy their real wasabi. My favourite lunch is their Northwest Ramen. I have tried several ramen places in big cities after setting Fukasaku's as my standard and I always like Fukasaku's better. I totally appreciate Dai's effort and his love for Prince Rupert seafood.

They are adaptable, show up for every event and fundraiser, have great catering and put on cooking classes.... even one this year with the Syrian refugee family. They have great food, but are increasingly becoming a cornerstone in the community! They deserve this award with all the work they have done in the past couple of years. Our organization has worked with Mucho on events, community revitalization ideas in Cow Bay.... and she also provides great service and food for catering!

Whether serving from the cart at Wheelhouse, offering lunch or dinner at the Curling Club or supporting local events with their catering service, one is never disappointed with the quality of food and service. Great addition to the Prince Rupert food scene!
