It was one of those days where you just don’t know where to eat. I know. And today was no exception, I had my taste buds set to indian curry but Colleen opted other wise, as in japanese other wise. So we got to driving half way to both places before we finally came into the conclusion that today was a jap day dinner.
Since colleen has been here before I was already pre warned about how tiny this place really is, I mean really, there’s like 4 tables inside. And man is it cramped. But I was promised good quality food and I was not disappointed.
It was a hot day outside so I decided to grab a pitcher of beer for us to share. Absolutely love sapporo.
Our first order was non other than fresh oysters! Every tuesday, half a dozen is only $6.5 so I grabbed a dozen and went nuts with the tabasco lol They were indeed very fresh and well prepared.
Next to appear was the Koi Extreme Roll, it’s a combination of avocado, tempura shrimp and deep fried onions that wrapped around the roll itself. Very unique, very delicious. The one which Colleen highly recommended me to try was their kaku-ni don. It’s stewed pork belly over rice. This was really, really good. a bit on the fatty side of the pork but man is it delicious. I don’t exactly know what went into the stew of course but the pork was ubber tender and just right on its actual flavor, not too salty and it was a nice rich change up from the oysters.
And our final order was the swiss roll, what makes it swiss I have no idea. But this was a classic mix of unagi and sweet potato. I thought this was very light on the pallet and wasn’t as strong as I had imagined. The unagi itself felt thin and it had more yam than needed. I still liked this style of sushi roll but it needed more stronger eel taste for me.
Overall our dinner was spot on, no complaints and the service was excellent, very friendly staff. Have fun finding parking and make sure you google map this location because it’s on an off angle via kingsway.
