Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #217: Satomi Sushi (2nd Go to)

Burnaby South, $$ (Reasonably Priced)

After a surprisingly good expertise at Kimu final time, Emperor Weng, Kyle and I made a decision to make a revisit and convey Eugene together with us. We had every little thing deliberate out, till unexpectedly, we found that it took an hour to transit from SFU to Kimu and that the restaurant closes at 9 p.m. on Tuesdays. Since Kyle and Eugene had night lessons and we wished to stay with one thing reasonably priced, we relocated our journey to Satomi Sushi.

Satomi Sushi is shortly gaining notoriety as a budget-friendly genuine Japanese restaurant close to Metrotown. Even at 8:30 p.m., our deliberate assembly time, the restaurant was nonetheless fairly busy. Sadly for me, Kyle, Eugene, and the emperor skilled an inner GPS malfunction, and so they left me sitting alone at my desk for half an hour. Throughout this time, one of many waitresses saved peering out the window, questioning the place my mates had been.

Aburi Tuna Toro Nigiri – A-

Having tried lots of the extra customary objects throughout my earlier go to, I scanned the specials on the partitions for one thing extra adventurous to get and got here throughout the Aburi Tuna Toro Nigiri. It scored an A+ for presentation, and the tuna was juicy with a pleasant, smoky flavour. The fish-to-rice ratio was appropriate, and the sushi rice was not packed too tightly.

Uni Motoyaki – B+

One particular I had by no means seen earlier than at any restaurant was the Uni Motoyaki (baked sea urchin). The feel of the uni was akin to a cross between masago and pudding. The motoyaki was very savoury, and the addition of sliced onions gave it some zing and a few crunch. It tasted barely heavy, however in the event you like motoyaki normally, you may more than likely get pleasure from this one.

Foie Gras Sushi – B+

Subsequent, to make sure that my invoice was spectacular, I went for the sautéed Foie Gras Sushi ($5). Though there was a bit an excessive amount of rice, the foie gras had a light-weight crispiness in addition to the attribute, smoky flavour of freshly seared foie gras.

Scat Aburi Roll – A-

As a result of I am a fan of all issues aburi, I selected the Scat Aburi Roll for my particular roll. This roll consisted of prawn tempura and seared spicy scallop. The spicy mayonnaise introduced this roll to life, and the crispy, meaty prawn tempura was a wonderful distinction to the candy chopped scallop on prime. I used to be pleasantly stunned at how well-executed this roll was.

Unatama Roll – A-

One other surprisingly well-executed roll was the Unatama Roll, which got here with unagi, tamago, and a drizzle of unagi sauce. Each the unagi and tamago had been properly ready, and collectively, they gave the roll a extremely tender, cake-like texture. 

Takoyaki – A-

With nonetheless some abdomen room left, I went for the Takoyaki. It was served sizzling and got here with twice the quantity of tako as a daily takoyaki. The pillowy inside was balanced properly by the crispy exterior of every ball.

Though we stayed a hair previous closing time (10 p.m.), the servers had been nonetheless moderately accommodating. Each the consistency and high quality of the meals had been higher than throughout my final go to, and I used to be most happy with how properly the rolls had been ready. With so many specials objects for me to strive, a 3rd go to would possibly very properly be within the plans!
