OK so we know there are a million sushi places in Vancouver and many are very good. What are the top 5 in the downtown area? I'm looking for something where they have the basic sushi for those who are not super adventurous but I also enjoy trying something different so want to please the whole group.
- i believe there are too many sushi places here- and many of them are not very good, unfortunately. however: i lucked into a new entry on the scene yesterday: SHIZENYA on hornby just to the north of nelson. yes, another ' brown rice ' sushi place but take heart: big emphasis on organic. menu is simple, unsurprising, yet inspired. prices are refreshingly down- tempo, unusual for a locale frequented by the nearby law- courts crowd. lots of vegetarian options utilizing organic oils and fresh greens. organic natto and hijiki. i had the the ' triple attack ' brown rice bowl: wild sockeye salmon sashimi & albacore tuna sashimi & cooked spinach on brown rice ( rice was first- rate btw ) - mains are all under 6 $ vegetarian curries, organic udon soups, etc. i wish this bright, clean new little place well. lovely salads. i would add link but am running into technical mishaps here. regardless: http://shizenya.ca
I like Kaide on Richards and Pacific and Juno on Davie between Seymour and Richards. Both have basics and other items which I wouldn't know whether they were basic or not as I am not a connoisseur but do love a good dynamite roll:) and go to both at least once a week. I believe both have websites so you can check the menu out.
