Togo Sushi


  UBC is in dire need of a good sushi place. (Where are all my UBCers at?!) Like a legit Japanese restaurant. The only sushi places at UBC are Bento Sushi, Suga Sushi, One More Sushi, and Peko Peko. And to be frank, all those places suck...sorry (just being honest) harhar.

  Enter: Togo Sushi. Unlike the other sushi places on campus (which are all located on the main campus) Togo Sushi is located in Westbrook Village - in the same plaza as Chef Hung's and Save on Foods!

  Togo Sushi is a chain with locations all over the lower mainland!! They mainly cater towards transit users, students, and "the lunch rush" crowd ~ hence the name "To go." Their prices aren't exactly cheap though, their prices are in line with most casual Japanese restaurants!!

  The day that I went (during lunch on a Tuesday) the place was absolutely packed, and I actually had to wait in line for 10 mins!! I got my food fairly quickly but I had to wait for a seat - the restaurant itself is so small!!



BC Roll, Chicken Teriyaki Roll, Beef Teriyaki Roll

BC Roll: 3/5 stars
Teriyaki Rolls: 2.5/5 stars

  The rolls were okay. The rice was a little warm, but other than that, it was perfectly fine! The beef was a bit dry (read: stale) for my liking, as was the chicken. The BC roll had a generous amount of salmon in it, but there wasn't a whole lot of skin, it was mostly meat!

  

I wish I lived at Westbrook ~ then I wouldn't have to spend 4 hours commuting to and from UBC!!

  1. There's also that Japanese restaurant underneath One more Sushi in UBC village. I forget what it's called, but I don't think you listed it. Most of my friends enjoy it the best of all the options on campus. There's salmon in particular is supposed to be really good. I've had it on a few occasions in the past, but my memory is foggy.

    2. That place (int'l food court in basement of UBC Village Bldg) is Chinese-run/owned. McSushi grade, but quite cheap for sure.

  2. Well, as far as fast food sushi restaurants go, I can't find anything better than Togo! The UBC location isn't the best, but the one at New West Station is quite remarkable for a fast food restaurant.

    I still haven't been to Suga Sushi. I don't know if they still have that "5 items for $25" combo anymore, but I'd love to try it out someday! The only problem is that I don't have your eating capabilities, and 5 items plus a special roll is a bit much...

    2. Let me know how it goes if you get around to trying it!

      5 items and a special roll is like All You Can Eat to me but 2x worse! D=

  3. Maybe, Selina and Raymond can go together and do a dual review of the place in New West.
