Sushi S + ANNOUNCEMENT!!
I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT GUYS!! :D
I'm taking this semester off and I'm going on an asia trip with my mom!! Seeing how I've had a hard semester, my mom offered to take me with her on her trip to asia!! How could I say no? LOL!
I'm leaving today, so this'll be my last post in Vancouver until I get back! But fear not, I'll be blogging the whole time I'm there hehe and I'll be doing restaurant reviews to keep you guys updated on all the yummy stuff I'm eating lol!! :D So stay tuned!! I won't be linking my reviews on Urbanspoon but I'll be updating this blog as frequently as I can!! I'll be resuming my Vancouver posts as soon as I get back! :D
I'll probably be there until March, which is sooo long (I know) haha, but this will probably be the last break I'm taking until I graduate! I'll have to take an extra summer semester to make up for the time I've lost lol. :D
We'll going to Taipei first (to visit the grandparents) and from there we're going to book flights to other asian countries!! We're thinking about going to Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam (but might not get to all of them haha.) I'm already giddy with excitement just thinking about all the awesome places we're going to go hehe! If there are any must-see/must eat places in any of the countries I mentioned, leave them for me down below!! :D
Anyways, back to Sushi S!! On Sunday my mom and I were famished after church (as usual lol) and being the lazy bums that we are, decided to go across the street to Sushi S! I've actually eaten here twice back in highschool! And I'm surprised I actually remember what I had ordered...the first time I got a cali roll, and the second time I went I had a chicken teriyaki roll w/ some agedashi tofu lol! I remember it being pretty yummy! :D
Assorted Nigiri $13
This was really great deal! I liked how they included amaebi and tako, because usually they don't come in combos! Everything tasted pretty fresh, and nothing tasted amiss. The tuna was really fresh and flavourful, the tako had a nice salty lemon-y finish, the chopped scallop had a good balance of mayo, the ebi had a nice snap, and the amaebi was naturally sweet tasting!
Salmon & Tuna Roll
The combo also came with 5 pieces of maki!! I was impressed with how little rice there was, just check out those huge chunks of salmon!
The chirashi don was similarly well done, and was really fresh! It had 3 slices of tuna, 3 slices of slamon, 5 pieces of amaebi, 3 tako, 3 hokigai, and 2 tai! There was a little too much rice though, there was probably 2-3 bowls worth in there!
Salmon Tempura Roll $4
My mom said that she was craving a roll lol, so she picked out the salmon tempura roll! This is like a mini/more economical version of their larger, higher priced speciality/fusion rolls! At $4, this was a great deal! There was barely any rice in it and it came with 6 pieces! The salmon tempura was lightly battered and there was a good amount of salmon in it! The spicy mayo sauce and the teriyaki sauce really worked together, and made this a really fun roll to eat with all the contrasting flavours and textures! :D
