Hot tip: the owners of the Fujiya Japanese food empire opened Hi Genki, located in the Nikkei Place senior centre, so that an elderly parent could continue to enjoy honest Japanese home cooking. Most entrées are less than $10, while starters are less than $5. Agedashi mushrooms dressed in shoyu broth and bonito flakes are simple and delicious. Move on to mixed seafood plates of fried oysters, prawns, and scallops, or richly warm Japanese curries. The space charms with understated touches the spring-time flowering cherry blossoms in the courtyard are lovely. Hours are set around the seniors’ schedule: 11:30 a.m.-3.p.m., 6:15-8:30 p.m.
