Marvs friend Kevin told us about Dream Sushi so since we were already in the area, we decided to stop by for a visit. There’s metered parking in the area, but if you venture into the side streets, you’ll be able to find free parking there.
The place is smaller than I expected. Its walls are plastered with coloured paper with drawings/words from previous Customers depicting what they liked/ordered. I thought this was a nice touch as I enjoyed reading/looking at each one and thinking to myself how they can all draw better than me!
This post is actually 2 separate visits combined into 1 since we ordered mostly the same things the 2nd time around. The service is friendly and attentive, but sometimes the food takes awhile to come out.
They have lunch specials where you can order 2 items for $6.50. I was feeling pretty hungry and decided to get 2 rice items. The first one on the above left is the Curry Chicken on Rice. It was expected that it would be a smaller portion and it really was. The picture makes it look a lot bigger than it was. To the right is the Chicken Teriyaki with Rice. The chicken was nicely cooked and I enjoyed the vegetables in this dish. I definitely enjoyed this more than the curry.
Marv decided to order 4 pieces of the Toro Nigiri. It was fresh and had a nice fish to rice ratio. He thoroughly enjoyed the 4 pieces. To the right is the Peking Duck Roll. I’ve been on a peking duck craze lately and this was surprisingly really good! There was quite a bit of duck meat in the roll with a layer of skin across the top. I pretty much gobbled this one up all by myself.
So I enjoyed the roll so much that I had to order it again during our 2nd visit! This had a lot more green onions than the last, but the meat was still plentiful and the skin was crisp. Just as good as the first time. I can’t remember the names of the other rolls, but Marv and Kevin said they were good.
Since I had also enjoyed their chicken teriyaki, I decided to order it as my meal. This time I opted for brown rice. There was a lot of chicken and even more bean sprouts/vegetables on the bottom of this dish. It came out sizzling on a hot plate. The chicken was again moist and nicely done.
To the left is theVolcano Roll. It’s a negitoro roll topped with scallop and a black sesame sauce. I’m not a fan of black sesame, but the combination of it all went well together.
Overall we enjoyed both visits to Dream Sushi, we found both the service and quality to be quite well done. I’d definitely be there early otherwise you’ll have to wait for a table.
