I was up on West 10th today and at half twelve came about all peckish. Whilst I wasn’t skimming through ‘Rogue Herrys’ by Hugh Walpole, I did happen upon Sun Sushi, a local fish house. So I decided to curtail my hitherto activities, sallied forth, and infiltrated their place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some fishy comestibles. Being one who delights in all manifestations of the briny muse, I wasted no time in ordering their $5.99 sushi lunch special!
BC Sushi, 2126 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC (visit date: FEB 09, 2013)
BC sushi is one of my favourite all you can eat sushi houses here in Vancouver. I have been a customer for a number of years because the food and service is consistently good, and the prices are fair. There have been quite a number of sushi joints along Broadway over the years, and BC Sushi has held their ranking as one of my preferred venues for both lunch and dinner all you can east sushi dining.
Robson Sushi, 1542 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC (visit date: JAN 23, 2013)
It has been a while since I had dined at Robson Sushi, and with fond memories of prior visits, a business meeting saw me treat a friend and fellow internet business associate to lunch partaking in their lunch menu.
Reasonable weekday pricing at $10.95 per person sets a positive tone for a quality sushi meal, with accompanying good service. Mind you, it was not particularly busy during our visit and evening visits will be busier. The price includes two sashimi orders per person, and the size, freshness and quality of the sashimi is most pleasing to the palate. (Side note, the sashimi included by Robson Sushi is far bigger and better than the late night menu sashimi offering from Tomokazu/Ninkazu on Broadway.)
Tomokazu / Ninkazu, 1128 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC (visit date: JAN 19, 2013)
After a long period of avoiding this long established all you can eat sushi house due to poor value for money, I tried to give it another fighting chance. It was quite late in the evening and I was hungry, with a hankering for sushi to please the palate, so off I went to Tomokazu.
Their late night all you can east menu is priced at $13.95 ($15.62 including tax) and I arrived at 10 pm for a thirty minute eating session. The price includes a limit of two orders of sashimi per person, along with the usual basic staples you’ll find on most local all you can eat late night menus.
