Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #224: Kisoya

Port Coquitlam, $$ (Reasonably Priced)

I’ve at all times been assured that I knew about all of the sushi eating places inside a 15-minute drive from my place, till Linda managed to provide you with one which had utterly slipped from my radar. After I bought by way of just a few moments of utter shock and horror, we agreed to have lunch at Kisoya.

Kisoya is a moderately giant (sure, I do not know the way I missed it) Korean-operated Japanese restaurant situated within the north a part of Port Coquitlam. It is among the oldest Japanese eating places in Port Coquitlam and options an in depth menu with a wide selection of particular rolls. Nonetheless, there is no such thing as a trendy Japanese fusion on the menu, so you will not discover any Aburi-type sushi right here.

Crabmeat Mushroom Salad – B+

One factor on the menu that caught my eye was the Crabmeat Mushroom Salad. On the menu, it seemed like an imitation crab sundae topped with vibrant berries for adornment. Most of all, it was served in a wine glass, and I do not go up issues served in wine glasses. The berries did not make it into the ultimate product, however there was an abundance of candy crab meat. It erred on the drier facet, and slightly extra mayonnaise might need helped.

Energy of Love Roll – A-

Since sushi is at all times a great way to expertise issues, I made a decision to get the Energy of Love Roll. This roll got here with unagi, deep-fried salmon, cucumber, avocado, tobiko, and unagi sauce. With crispy deep-fried salmon on high and crispy unagi inside, this roll was a superb mixture of flavours. 

Spicy Hen Field

When selecting lunch bins, I at all times like to decide on the field with the least greens, probably the most meat, and probably the most particular gadgets attainable. This led us to the Spicy Hen Field.

Miso Soup – B+

The Spicy Hen Field got here with a Miso Soup. The consistency was on the thinner facet, however there was adequate miso paste to provide the soup a wealthy flavour.

Ebi Mayo – C+

The Ebi Mayo was made with panko batter and dressed with a mixture of mustard and mayonnaise. The batter was barely arduous, and the prawns have been noticeably overdone.

Washington Roll – B+

Subsequent up, the Washington Roll consisted of crab meat, cucumber, avocado, recent salmon, wasabi and peanut sauce. Just like the Energy of Love Roll, the substances within the Washington Roll labored properly collectively. The salmon and avocado topping created a pleasant creamy texture, and the wasabi supplied a refined hit of spiciness to the roll. 

Salad – B+

Dressed with a tangy French dressing, the lettuce-based salad was recent and sufficiently flavoured.

Spicy Hen Teriyaki – B+

The Spicy Hen Teriyaki got here with tender rooster and savoury bean sprouts beneath. The rooster had a nice grilled flavour, although components of it have been a bit oily. The spicy sauce was fairly spicy, however not overwhelmingly so.

Prawn Tempura – A

Yam Tempura – B+

Candy Potato Tempura – B

No doubt, the very best a part of the lunch field was the Prawn Tempura, which got here with crispy, juicy prawns that had a pleasant snap to them. Apparently, the batter on the yam and candy potato was significantly thicker.

General, contemplating that this was a restaurant that I had by no means even heard of, the standard of the meals surpassed my expectations. Nonetheless, the service was slightly sparse though we have been just about the one ones within the restaurant. The ambiance ended up moderately quiet in consequence, however then once more, when you wander east of Coquitlam, bustling sushi eating places are like sunny November days in Vancouver.
