My Sushi

Like I said, there are so many yummy things around my area and My Sushi is testament to that. I've been there three times in the past week and still want more! Luckily it's only a minute's walk from where I live so it's pretty easy to satisfy my cravings.

My first time here, I made a life-changing discovery - snowfish. We had initially wanted to order yellowtail but it was sold out for the day and the waitress recommended us try snowfish, or white tuna. I will be forever grateful to her for introducing it to me! It's absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so naturally on my second visit I had to order more.

tuna, salmon, snowfish ($18, $12, $20 for 2pcs)

Their regular tuna pales in comparison and I wouldn't bother with it to be honest. The snowfish seriously is out of this world. And for only $20, I find it quite the steal! The salmon is also really good here - super fresh and great quality. I could not believe it was only $12 - I think that's as cheap as conveyor belt sushi!!

fatty tuna and lobster salad warships ($25, $18 for 2 pcs)

I enjoyed the fatty tuna but didn't try the lobster salad - not a big fan of that semi-sweet mayo dressing they use though my friend seemed to enjoy it immensely.

unagi handroll ($15 for 1pc)

This was the only thing I wasn't pleased with and couldn't bring myself to finish. The sauce of the eel was sickly sweet and overpowering. Made me a bit upset because I really wanted to try their grilled eel don which looks amazing in their photos and had lots of "thumbs up" and smiley faces on the menu..

rainbow roll ($50)

This was okay, though I tend to prefer sushi to rolls (unless they're of the Hatsune type). It had cucumber, crabmeat, and avocado inside, topped with salmon/tuna/scallops and more avocado. Good thing I'm a big fan of avocado! How I miss avocado milkshakes in Boston...

Delicious meal for about $100pp (we ordered ice cream mochi for dessert too). Definitely worth trying if you're in the neighbourhood. I was surprised by how fresh the fish was considering the prices. Really well prepared by the Fujian man behind the counter! And the service is great, particularly as there's no service charge!

They also have delicious rice bowls for really decent prices. I got this salmon & salmon roe ikura-don for only $49 ($45 if you order it without the miso soup). What a steal and perfect for an easy meal at home.
