Review: Cheap Eats at Ebi Ten

by gigi on August 29, 2007

Jenkins and I went to one of our favourite places for cheap eats last week…Ebi Ten at 388 Robson St. Ebi Ten is a fast food Japanese place with a small but delicious menu. They have about 10 different main dishes, including terikyaki chicken with rice and tempura udon as well as a selection of prepared sushi.

Jenkins and I both decided to have the teriyaki chicken rice bowls for dinner. The teriyaki chicken is served on rice with a bed of lettuce and a little bit of mayo on top. Pretty different from what teriyaki chicken looks like at most places!

For $5.95, you also get a free pop or miso soup with your combo…which is great. If you opt out, your combo is $0.75 cheaper. Normally, the chicken teriyaki rice bowl is more than enough for dinner but we were a bit hungry that night so we added a couple of extra items.

I selected a small dish of wakame (seaweed). It was marinated in a vinegar dressing and tossed with some sesame seeds. There was also a hint of spiciness, which was nice.

Jenkins opted for some California rolls. In terms of taste, the California rolls here really aren’t that great…but are acceptable, especially if you are hungry. Both the wakame and the California rolls were $1.89 each.

Jenkins and I have been going to Ebi Ten for a few years now and it’s always a great place to grab a quick bite to eat. Most menu items are familiar to most people but some dishes (like the teriyaki chicken) have an interesting twist to them. I have never been here for lunch before but Jenkins tells me that the line-ups can get pretty crazy.
