Sushi Bella (near Metrotown): Fresh Sashimi & Creative Japanese Fusion dishes

Share on Google Plus

I've just realized that my last post was 2 months ago.... I was busy with my full-time and part-time job and didn't have enough time to blog. Literally there are more than 50+ posts I need to catch up. I am thinking to finish these off during Christmas holidays. Please stay tuned :) It's such a sad feeling to see my ranking goes down from 7th to 40th or below.. Anyways, enough talk about my personal stuff, and now back to SophiaEats! 
Since Sushi Bella's successful restaurant launch in North Vancouver in 2010 they've expanded three other locations all over Metro Vancouver. Sushi Bella is famous for their trendy French-Japanese fusion dishes and creative Bella Sashimi & Appetizer selection. I work here part-time on weekends, so I've got to try a variety of dishes! More to come :)
*Disclaimer: This review is solely based on my personal opinion and experience. 
The first dish I tried is Bella Tower ($12) which is one of their most famous items! The crab meat base is mixed with avocado and shitake mushrooms, and topped with chunky salmon & tuna sashimi, tobiko and deep-fried lotus root slice. Bella Tower tastes better with its creative sauces - wasabi mayo, balsamic sauce, pesto, garlic chips and capers! Because of the crab mix and pesto, it gives out very creamy and rich flavours. 
One thing I like about this dish is that the crab mix isn't pre-made!
Beautiful Creation!
I can never miss Salmon Sashimi when I visit any Japanese restaurant! Salmon Sashimi ($10) usually comes in 6 slices, but this one contains 8 slices because they are cut thinner.
Toro ($2), Red Tuna ($4), Hamachi ($3), Amaebi ($3.5), 2 Uni ($3.5 each) Nigiri Sushi (from Left to Right) - My favourite was Toro and Hamachi! They were really fresh, flavorous and creamy. The prawn head was deep-fried and served with the crab mix. You can enjoy it as a delicacy :)
Below is the second visit with one of my friends!
For appetizer, we ordered a Puri-Puri Ebi ($8). The panko-breaded prawns are deep-fried, and come with salad and house-made creamy, fruity sauce. It is extra crunchy compared to the regular prawn tempura. 
Of course I ordered Salmon Sashimi ($10) again! This is the regular size of salmon sashimi. It was not as fresh as the first time, but still tasty.
Toro ($2 each), Hamachi ($3), Red Tuna ($4), Tamago ($1.5 each) Nigiri Sushi (from Left to Right)This time there was a slice of avocado on top of toro nigiri sushi, which gave out more creamy texture.
We also got some Bella Rolls! Crazy California Roll ($7) and Crunchy Go-Go Roll ($6) are the two most popular rolls at Sushi Bella. Crazy California Roll is basically a deep-fried California Roll topped with a variety of different sauces including unagi, chilli mayo and sriracha sauce. 
Crunchy Go-Go Roll is a must here! It's filled with double prawns, yam tempura, avocado and topped with crunchy flakes and chilli mayo. It's the cheapest, yet most filling Bella Roll! 
For dessert, we got an Ice Cream Tempura ($7). It's a huge scoop of Vanilla (or Green Tea) ice cream covered with thick batter and deep-fried. The batter was a bit overwhelming and became soggy pretty quick.
Our table full of food :D
