SUSHI TOWN (in North Vancouver): POCKET-FRIENDLY PRICE

Share on Google Plus

My parents came to Vancouver a few days ago so we are touring around B.C. these days. After a short trip to Squamish on Saturday, my parents and I headed over to Sushi Town in North Vancouver.

Deluxe Assorted Sashimi 25 pcs ($18.95) consisted of salmon, tuna (substituted for salmon), tai, tako (octopus), amaebi (sweet prawns), hamachi (yellowtail), hokkigai (surf clam) and saba (mackerel). The sashimi was not special to be considered "deluxe" in terms of its selection and the quality. The salmon was not fresh but rather mushy and lacking flavour. I forgot to take a picture of Spicy Salmon Sashimi ($8.95) but it tasted pretty good due to their signature sweet-spicy sauce (the typical Korean spicy sashimi sauce called chogochujang, 초고추장). 
Assorted Tempura ($7.50) had prawns, zucchini, carrots and potato tempura (2 pieces each). They were pretty good as the batter was well-seasoned and held the crunchy texture nicely.
Awesome Roll ($7.95) consisted of crab meat, cucumber, avocado, mayo (basically the California Roll) inside the roll, topped with salmon, green onion, masago and bonito. The sauce was a bit overwhelming to me, but my mom still enjoyed it. 
My parents were pretty full by this point but I was still craving more food. I ordered 3 other items including Double Dragon Roll ($7.95), which consisted of avocado, cucumber, masago, unagi, mayo topped with unagi, avocado, masago, green onion, and sesame seeds. The sauce for the unagi was very subtle and the unagi itself was not fully cooked. It had a very soft texture which I liked about, but it was rather plain in terms of taste. My parents were all stuffed after a few pieces of sashimi and rolls, so I basically finished 
Chicken Karage 6 pcs ($3.95) was seasoned well and crispy on the outside holding the juiciness of meat on the inside. But the oil they used was a bit old making the chicken smelly. 
The Toro Nigiri was not available so I got Chopped Scallop Nigiri ($1.35) and Hotategai Nigiri ($1.65) instead. The hotate was rather mushy and lacking a sweet flavour.
Overall, the place was okay considering its "very" cheap prices and generous portions compared to all other places. It was a good choice to surprise my parents that it costed only $60 after all. My parents were not satisfy with the sashimi, but they still liked the special rolls.
