I’ve been to Sushi Loku before but have yet to try their aburi. The aburi here is cheaper than Miku and they might have been one of the first restaurants to have aburi besides Miku/Minami and maybe Kishimoto? Don’t quote me on that but we have more restaurants adding aburi to their menus now. Read more
For Mother’s Day, my brother and I took my mom out for dinner at Charcoal Sushi. Located in the complex on No. 3 Road and Westminster Hwy, there’s plenty of parking here! Charcoal Sushi has about 7 medium sized tables inside and some bar seating. Each table also has a covered grill in the centre for BBQ meats. They take reservations but didn’t seem very busy for the Mother’s Day weekend.
We started off with a Chopped Scallop Roll and Smoked Salmon Roll. Fairly standard, the scalloped roll could’ve been rolled better. Read more
I saw that a new sushi restaurant had opened where Luv Cravings used to be on Cambie and King Edward. It’s also sandwiched between Corner 23 and Copa Cafe. Since it’s fairly new, it was empty when we went but we decided to try it anyway because I’m a food blogger and that’s what I do! Also I read on Raymond’s Sushi Adventures that it was not bad. The restaurant has a lot of booth seating.
The first roll we received was the Caribbean roll which was basically like a rainbow roll but with tamago inside. It was nicely constructed but it just seemed kind of dry? Or it was more evident that the rice was bland and could’ve used more vinegar? Maybe I’m just too used to rolls drenched in sauce these days. Read more
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. Read more
Sushi Loku is on the corner of Saint George St. and E. Broadway. The building kind of looks like a house so it could be easy to miss.
We started off with the Sushi Pizza which is made with crispy deep fried rice topped with either salmon or tuna and avocado. There was also a fried garlic chip on each piece. We enjoyed the crispy texture of the rice with the fresh fish. They also have a Volcano version of this which is spicy. Read more
I’ve seen some really great Instagram posts about Sushiholic so I convinced my friends to check it out after biking around the seawall. I believe their original location is on East Broadway near Boundary Road. I visited their Denman location and it has a bit of a cozy feel with their brick walls and dim lighting.
I tried Plum Wine for the first time! I liked it since it was really sweet. Read more
