J and I were looking forward to Sunday all week. We really wanted to just spend the entire days at home relaxing and doing a whole lot of nothing. After a delicious breakfast of homemade waffles I decided to kibosh our lazy Sunday by writing out a grocery list and insisting we go out and fulfill it.Of course I also had to squeeze in lunch while we out as well! J didn’t want to stray too far from Save-on-foods so the second I spotted something other than McDonalds or A&W I suggested it. This time it was Sushiro Sushi, located at 22805 Lougheed Hyw in Maple Ridge.
We got there pretty much right at noon and we were the only people in there at that time. There was 2 servers standing near the counter and J yelled out “You don’t look Japanese”…..I embarrassingly slinked over to a booth near the window. For the record the chefs are Japanese.
They have a really big menu with lots of soups, donburi, noodles, tempura, sushi, sashimi, and teriyaki. Since there was a lot of option it took a while before we made a decision. We also had waffles a few hours earlier so we weren’t looking to order a lot of food either.
We decided on sharing a lunch box and a roll called tuna killer. We started off with a bowl of miso soup that has a really decent flavoured broth, but it was missing all the tofu and had very little green onion.
The lunch box they offer is your typical box that you can find a pretty much every sushi joint out there. There was a salad, some tempura, salmon and tuna sashimi, dynamite roll and 2 pieces of chicken katsu. Everything in the box tasted good, but I especially liked that the tempura wasn’t super thick and had a nice crunch.
The tuna killer was a one of their specialty rolls that isn’t on the take menu. To be honest, now that I am home, I don’t remember the exact ingredients but it was basically a spicy tuna roll topped with tuna tataki, more hot sauce and another type of sauce which is very close to teriyaki.
I think this was a decent sushi joint. The prices were fair, the food was good but don’t expect to be blown away. I didn’t have any complaints per say, but there was just nothing that stood out to me that pushed it above any other sushi joint out there.
