brown rice sushi?

hungrystudent257 Mar 25, 2009 12:50 PM

hey can anyone recommend a good place to go for sushi made with brown rice? I'm going to be living around Yonge-Wellesley, but anywhere accessible by TTC is fine. thanks so much

    Off the top of my head I know that Shogun on Cumberland in Yorkville (at Bloor and Avenue) have brown rice sushi. I've never tried it myself. It's accessible by TTC, but I'm sure other people have suggestions that may be closer to you.

      There's a new fast-food sushi joint called Sushi Shop on the south-east corner of Yonge/College that makes brown rice sushi. I haven't tried it yet so I can't comment on the quality.

        The fast food chain Sushi Q also has it. Saw it at the Eatons Food Court near Queen St.

        Tokyo Kitchen right at Yonge and Wellesley serves brown rice with the hot entrees, but don't know if they use it in their sushi.

        Sushi Island at College and Bathurst has it

          I think Sushi Rock at Yonge and Eglinton has it.

            many places will do it if you ask, including Sushi Inn (Yorkville) Hosu Bistro (Queen West, yonge/Eg) and the place on Yonge at hayden (forget the name).

              Sorry, I would not recommend Sushi Inn. Find their food bland and tasteless.

              Echo Sushi will, it's at Yonge/Davisville, and pretty good from what I remember. Although the waiter was really cute, so that may have helped.

                sushi Echo does have it but I thought that theres was a dark brown almost purple and have seen it no where else looking like that almost like they put food colouring...edo is the best but it is not accessible easily on your route and a bit pricey more a go to nice dinner place
                I heard that sushi supreme is opening another location right at Yonge and wellesly in the next few weeks..I don't know if they have it but there sushi is excellent for the price point

                  Went today to the newly opened Sushi Supreme at Yonge and Wellesly. Everything is 20% off for their grand opening. I had the Seafood Udon soup -- it had real grilled salmon, white fish, shrimp, crab, scallops, etc. in it. It was really good. I also had a lunch sushi combo of california maki and salmon maki. My eating companion had the sushi silver combo. We both had a great time, thought it was amazing value for the price, and the service was impeccible. We were the only people there (granted, it was Mother's Day). Overall, I would definitely go back, especially with 20% off!

                      Not sure. I only commented on this thread because it was the only place that mentioned Sushi Supreme, and I didn't want to start a new thread.
