I wasn’t expecting much from this place: it’s really humble looking; the chefs and staff are Korean; and it’s so cheap, I was wondering: is the food going to be good? But it’s a favourite of my mom’s and I ended up going there with her and my brother on my trip to Vancouver. Some great dishes, like this black cod above.
We ordered a good selection of dishes. And really, I was impressed. For example, the fish collar is an unusual dish, was cheap, was tasty and tender. Mom kept saying how most people wouldn’t know to order this and how good it is. Secret’s out!
The various innovative sushi rolls are worth a try. This one seemed to have some real bits of lobster!
The only dishes I wasn’t impressed with was a tamago nigiri (egg omelet on sushi rice) and mom’s order of a crab roll sushi (with real crab, a dollar or two more). They were the same quality as cheap Japanese take-out or sushi trains… but hey, they hardly cost anything at all.
In the meantime, I forgot my phone and stole Mom’s to take these. Horrible quality and weird shapes. Sorry. And as mentioned, you don’t go here for the decor, or even the ambience. But if you’re up for cheap and surprisingly tasty Japanese food, I would recommend it.
