When you’ve spent most of your day eating or sitting on patios it’s really hard to motivate yourself to eat a proper dinner. Whistler did this to us. Bad Whistler. Okay, I love you Whistler but you’re making me eat everything in sight. When this happens I turn to sushi. It can be healthy (depending on what you order) and for me it isn’t something so heavy that I need to be taken out of an establishment by a wheelbarrow. Our hotel had a few books and magazines all about restaurants and there happened to be a Sushi place within walking distance that had great reviews. I am very thankful for these books since I didn’t have my laptop for food investigations.
Sachi Sushi is located at 4359 Main Street unit 106. Basically it’s under The Summit resort, where J and I stayed. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t have my lap top because they’ve gotten a few bad reviews on urbansoon and we might not have gone. I am very happy we did as our experience was much more positive then what was posted.
The place is small, with a kitchen in the back and 2 chefs rolling the sushi in the middle of the restaurant. Our server was a big tall lanky white y. We ordered the beef tataki to start as J hasn’t had this before and hasn’t had beef Carpaccio before either and loves beef. The ponzu sauce came on the side and was garnished with lots of green onion. The beef, to me, was slightly thicker then I am used to but oh so good. I also wish the ponzu sauce wasn’t on the side but It didn’t effect the taste.
We also got a plate of assorted sashimi, which you can see has a good variety. It was hard to share though, and I ended up cutting each piece in half so J and I could both try. All the fish was so fresh and so flavourful. I don’t even know when the last time was that I had fish of this quality. I was very impressed by this assortment as well.
We also ordered, what I thought was the Sachi roll, but now that I am looking at the photo and comparing it to the description I am not sure it was the right thing. A Sachi roll is shrimp tempura, avocado, salmon, scallop, spicy mayo with a soy bean sheet. What we have looks more like a scallop roll (it was spicy) topped with salmon and avocado. It was delicious and the same freshness as the assorted sashimi. I am really hit or miss with liking scallop rolls because I find most of the time they’re really “fishy” tasting but this time it wasn’t overly fishy and with the spicy mayo I fell in love.
Lastly was pork gyoza, which in my opinion was pretty average. Maybe I was so spoiled with our sushi and sashimi that I had the bar set really high. I don’t have any complaints but it was just gyoza to me.
Most of the complaints I saw were about the service or the manager. I didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary other than our server mumbling a bit. I was mostly the patrons that were being slightly rude. I really enjoyed my meal and would definitely come back to this place again.
