We went around 2pm and it was empty at the time but two tables came in after us.
The server we had was new and it was her first day! She was really friendly and the other lady helping her (I think she might be the owner) was also really nice.
We started with some Gomae which is cooked spinach with a peanut butter sesame sauce on top. Nothing too exciting here but they did serve us complimentary miso soup which was unexpected.
We ordered the Philadelphia Roll which had smoked salmon on top and cream cheese inside a California roll. The roll was well made, tightly rolled and had a decent sized piece of smoked salmon on top.
Next we ordered the Volcano Hub which was advertised as their #1 selling roll. It came with 8 pieces and seared chopped scallop on top with some spicy mayo and sweet sauce. This was delicious and I loved the seared flavour of the scallops. The overall flavour was more sweet than spicy. I would’ve liked it to be a bit more spicy. The presentation was really nice.
Now for the item I had been waiting for! The Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi ($12.50). For Sushi Hub’s version, they used some “special seasoning” on their fish so it had some salty flavours to it and they also don’t use mayo on top so it didn’t really have that creamy melt in your mouth taste but I did like their take on it.
Unfortunately the piece of jalapeno on top was much too big. It was overpowering and if you can’t handle spicy food you should probably pick it off. They also offer aburi avocado, negitoro, ebi, and chopped scallop oishi sushi.
Lastly we had the Seared Tuna and Avocado Salad with a refreshing house dressing. There was a good amount of tuna and avocado and also just enough dressing for the salad.
I can see Sushi Hub as a great neighbourhood spot and the rolls are made with care and pricing is reasonable. They just need to tweak their aburi sushi a bit!
