Hi! So, now I think I'll talk about sushi. As you Ottawanians must know, this is not a sushi town. We have the two fancy market sushi places, Kinki and Wasabi, which both have very good sushi at a very high price. What we don't have much of here is good, casual Japanese food at "Toronto prices". Not much at all, except for, (drumroll) my favorite sushi place, Sushi Fresh! Above the Lapointe seafood restaurant at 55 York St. (also recommended), you'll find the sushi restaurant. They have an extensive menu, with everything you need, tea without ordering, (what is this, ordering tea?) and good fresh fish. I wouldn't recommend the tempura, though, it's not quite right. And they're not licenced. Those are my complaints. But after trying not all, but many of the other options, I keep coming back.
Upon discovering that Sushi Fresh is closed on Sundays, Kris and I tried Totoya, on Dalhousie. The verdict: Good, but too expensive and I found the menu confusing and hard to order from.
We tried Sushi 88 on Somerset.
The verdict: Lots of options on menu, bad rice and fish situation.
Thank you for listening.
