Sushi California (Coquitlam) – Part 2

Sushi California (501A North Rd, Coquitlam, BC, Canada, phone: 604-931-8284) is a small but very popular Japanese sushi restaurant at the corner of Austin and North Road, across from Lougheed Mall in Burnaby. It’s within walking distance of the Lougheed Mall skytrain station.

The restaurant has very reasonable prices, and quite fresh ingredients. [On my visit in 2008] I enjoyed the Tako Sunomono (octopus, $3.25, pictured below), the Alaska Roll ($3.75, also pictured below), and the Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Roll ($3.95, pictured below). I also added two pieces of nigiri sushi, the Tamago (egg) and Inari (sweet bean curd wrapper), which were only $1 each.

The restaurant also caters to vegetarians, with a good selection of vegetarian rolls (also pictured below). For more info and another photo, view Part 1.

Update: Jan. 24th 2010. I visited Sushi California again and made a video of my visit. Watch on Youtube or use the player below.

Rasputin45, a reviewer on Dinehere.ca writes (click here to read review):

Best rolls in town! We stop by here often when we are in the Main Street area. The seekh kebab (lamb sausage) roll is excellent and unlike anything else I have had in this city.

Mia Stainsby of the Vancouver Sun writes (click here to read article):

Predominantly takeout with lots of choices. Excellent value for tasty kebabs, tandoori dishes, curries, and wraps, all under $10.

Yamato Sushi Restaurant (Davie St) – Part 2

Yamato Sushi Restaurant (map, 616 Davie St, Vancouver, BC, Canada, phone: 604-682-5494) is a hole-in-the-wall Japanese restaurant in downtown Vancouver with amazingly low prices (considering its downtown location) and pretty good quality for the money.

I ordered one of their sushi combinations ($6.65, shown in video below) which included 4 pieces of Nigiri sushi, a California roll, and miso soup. It was presented nicely and tasted good.

For a direct link to the video I made, please click here. For some more photos please view Part 1.
