For a refreshing Robson shopping break, try Donburi-Ya

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      With a tiny patio out front and tables inside facing the big, sunny window, Donburi-Ya (1329 Robson Street) is perfectly positioned for people-watching. The quick counter-service restaurant makes dishes like donburi, curry rice, and yaki udon with care and offers homespun touches like Mason jars of Japanese pickles for customers to add to their meals. For a refreshing shopping break, the crispy karaage ($3.50 for four juicy pieces) goes perfectly with a pint of ice-cold Asahi draft beer ($5.75).
