I was looking for a new sushi place in my neighbourhood on Yelp when I came across Sushi Hoon. The reviews were above average so I decided to give them a go. They are located on Granville and 64th next to where Bubble World used to be.
The interior looks more modern and spacious that you might guess from looking at the outside.
Cute way to fold the chopstick holder!
We all received complimentary Miso Soup but I found it to be bland.
I really wanted Chicken Kaarage but it turned out to be so disappointing! I’m sure you can tell from the picture already that this was not what I was expecting. I didn’t like the batter and it could’ve been seasoned more.
I’ve had Monkey Brain before at the night market and also at Mega Sushi so I wanted to get it again here. Turns out it was also not what I was expecting. Monkey Brain is deep fried avocado with imitation crab meat inside and in this version, they used tuna instead. I thought the tuna gave it a bit of a mushier texture. Also, the portion was a bit small and the salad underneath makes it look like there is more food.
Here we have the Granville roll, Paradise roll, Salmon and Avocado roll and Chopped Scallop roll. The Granville roll had avocado, cucumber, crab meat and torched salmon with fried onion hay on top. I like the crunch from the onion hay! We picked the Paradise roll because it came with seaweed salad on top! This was a deep fried roll with avocado, cucumber, crab meat and asparagus inside. We really liked their special rolls.
The Assorted Sashimi was quite disappointing. I think it had tuna, salmon, seared salmon, ebi, tai and something else? The quality wasn’t there and It just didn’t feel like it was worth it.
Here we have the Salmon and Cream Cheese roll and I can’t remember what the other roll is.
The chef also brought us some Salmon Belly Nigiri for us! We got 1 piece per person. The salmon belly was nice and fatty but maybe a bit too much rice?
Finally we had the Chicken Teriyaki Udon. The portion was pretty big and the plate was super hot!
We had some hits and misses here but I think you should just stick to their rolls and maybe cooked food.
