Nelson: A nice interior, but the service was extremely slow and we had to leave without getting our full order. Also a bit pricey, but here are the food pics/descriptions anyway.
These chopped scallop roll ($4.95) was really creamy and tasted pretty fresh. Must be the Vancouver effect.
Salmon sashimi ($15.95) had large quality pieces. Typically Vancouver.
Fresh Kani Miso Roll described as fresh dungeness crab with crab tomalley ($14.95). I've never seen a roll like before and it not surprisingly it had a really strong crab taste. It was unique and I liked it!
Assorted Sashimi ($19.95) was presented really nicely and had very little fish considering that there was octopus, squid and shrimp as well as the salmon and the tuna.
Gyutan Shioyaki ($6.95) is beef tongue and had good peppery flavour, but it was slightly chewy. I suppose that's normal.
Dynamite roll ($6.95) was pretty normal and nothing special.
The whole squid ($8.95) was done well and was ok overall.
Takoyaki ($6.50) was more solid the what I like, but the unique thing was that it had a very smokey flavour from the bonito flakes.
The grilled pork toro ($10.95) was sooo good. The fatty taste was perfect. Note that that is collar from a pig.
Lobster Okonomiyaki ($15.95) is actually called Lobster pizza in english and appropriately it had cheese! It also had lots of lobster pieces, but the overall taste was a bit busy with competing flavours. Good idea, but not so good execution.
Lastly is some spicy salmon bibimbup ($25.90). It wasn't even that big for this price.
Overall the bad service put a damper into the overall experience, plus the high prices definitely did not help. A rare miss with Japanese food in Vancouver.
