Sushi Star: A Quick Lunch Option in Downtown

Share on Google Plus

For my lunch I went to Sushi Star on Nelson Street near my office. It's a small take-out place where you can grab a quick bite. The place is owned by Koreans (expect to have more creative rolls than authentic sushi) and offers a wide range of lunch boxes & sushi rolls that can easily fill up your stomach at lower cost. A waitress brought me a cup of warm tea while I was waiting for take-out. Very thoughtful :)
I like Atlantic salmon better than sockeye salmon in general because Atlantic sashimi tastes so much more filling and tender/soft to me. Although Sushi Star doesn't have Atlantic Salmon on their menu, it was one of my lucky days because they had it in stock on the day. Atlantic Salmon Sashimi ($9.90 for 9 pieces) wasn't as big as what I used to get from other similar restaurants, but it was still cheap. In terms of taste, I wasn't impressed about its quality. It was somewhat fishy and the knife skill wasn't great.
Star Dynamite Roll ($7.95) is a Dynamite Roll topped with avocado, unagi sauce & mayo and tempura bits. Not too bad in terms of taste, but the sushi rice was a bit hard.
Overall, nothing was outstanding but the location was great for me so that I might visit sometime.
