Where is the best price for Chirshi ??

Hi to all foodie guru here

I am looking for the one with thick cut style (see the pic). Any suggestions ?

  1. Wow, that Chirashi pictured would set you a back a few dollars.

    I don't think I ever come across a chirashi that would give both hamachi and big eye tuna (?? - in the back behind the cucumber) in the quantity pictured. These types of fish don't come in the standard Chirashi in Vancouver.

    I would suggest going to a Japanese run sushi place.
    -Zero One Sushi offers variety in their fish selection and a good Chirashi don but not thick cut like that.
    -Tsuki Sushi Bar & Sushi Mart both do a good Chirashi but I'm not certain their cut of fish is as wide as pictured.

    Good luck on your search!

      Zipang and toshi both do pretty good chirashi. You can usually ask to add or omit stuff depending on your taste.

        Here's a pic of Zero One Sushi's chirashi don.

          I would like to second Tsuki Sushi on this.

        2. Try Kiriri and Sushi Hachi in Richmond.

            Thanks to all, my question is what is the BEST PLACE and not Best price for Chirashi.

              Your thread title sure confused us otherwise !

                Can you define best, besides the obvious fresh fish and seasoned rice?

                -Are you looking for a variety of fish beyond the standard Salmon, Tuna, Ebi, Surf Clam combination?
                -Are you looking for stunning presentation?
                -Are you looking for value as your posts implies with the thick cuts of fish request?

                My rec of Zero One would give you better variety of fish (have had uni and smoked tuna in their gorgeous chirashi)
                Tsuki Sushi has a beautiful presentation
                Sushi Mart has value.
                All use fresh fish and seasoned rice.

                1. re: moyenchow

                  Note that Zero One is no longer open weekends.

                  I have had some truly great Chirashi there.

            2. I haven't ordered this in quite a while, but I used to really enjoy the chirashi lunch special at Ajisai.

                Ordered the Gorgeous Chirashi from Zero One today@ lunch-it was indeed Gorgeous.

              2. I was taken to Kiriri today, and had the chirashi. The fish and shellfish on it are very fresh, with that oceany, fruity taste. The slices are thin, and melt-in-mouth tender. The amount of rice is perfect and the only point of criticism I'd make is that it was a bit too acidic. It's a $13 lunch set, no fancy tricks—well, except for the sliced sweet tamago which is a delightful finish. It comes with a very good miso (although slightly salty), and pickles, and a simmered daikon dish.

                Overall, there are tons of sushi restaurants in Richmond, but I felt the quality of the seafood is noticeably higher, and the dishes are prepared more carefully. Really enjoyable meal and definitely looking forward to visiting again. (One downside is that it's a small restaurant; there can be a wait for your food).

                  Glad it (mostly) worked out for you. I've never had the chirashi there, but do recall it was ordered by many folks in the restaurant at the time. My dining friend who was with me that day said he's had it before and was pretty impressed (amidst the tons of sushi restaurants in Richmond .....). So FWIW, it's a worthy place to return.
