Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #228: Sushi Hub

Vancouver (Southwest), $$ (Reasonably Priced)

I in all probability would have by no means discovered about Sushi Hub had they not adopted me on Instagram. Situated on one of many much less busier elements of Major Avenue, the restaurant makes it fairly apparent that its characteristic dish is Aburi sushi. As quickly as I returned the comply with, half of my Instagram feed was full of delicious-looking photographs of fusion sushi from Sushi Hub. I took this as an indication that Instagram was persuading me to strive the restaurant and received Tamsen to hitch me for lunch. 

The restaurant isn’t very massive, however the eating space appeared clear and so as. I suppose phrase about this restaurant had not likely unfold, because it was not packed even throughout peak lunch hours. As such, we had a snug quantity of room at our desk.

Miso Soup – A-

Since we ordered an Aburi Field, we have been entitled to at least one miso soup. Nevertheless, they have been good sufficient to provide us two. Served sizzling, the Miso Soup got here with inexperienced onion and bean curd and was well-balanced.

Edamame – B+

The each day particular that got here with the Aburi Field was a small serving of edamame. These have been salted and tasted recent with adequate moisture.

Salmon Sashimi – A-

Tuna Sashimi – B+

Subsequent up, the Salmon Sashimi was buttery and creamy with a pleasantly easy texture. The slices weren’t significantly massive, however the reducing was on level. The Tuna Sashimi was very comfortable and refreshing.

Aburi Field

There was some peculiar pricing occurring, because the Aburi Field ($11.50), which contained 3 items of Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi, price lower than an order of 6 items of Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi ($12.50). Because it was lunch time, it did not make a lot sense to get an order of Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi, so we opted for the Aburi Field.

Salad – B-

The Salad was comprised of blended greens and got here with somewhat little French dressing. Though this made the Salad barely too dry, maybe this was a very good factor as a result of the French dressing was oddly salty.

Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi – B

The primary characteristic, the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi, got here with thinly sliced items of seared salmon, which have been graced with big, honking slices of jalapeño. Though the seared salmon had a pleasant smoky flavour, the jalapeño was fairly overpowering and introduced demise and havoc to our poor tongues. I additionally discovered the oshi barely rice-heavy.

Teriyaki Beef – B+

The Teriyaki Beef was candy and helped convey our tongues again to life. The meat was tender, although sliced thickly in some locations. The steamed rice beneath was well-prepared.

Tempura – B+

With a light-weight layer of crispy batter, the Tempura was one of many higher gadgets within the field. There have been 2 juicy prawns together with 3 small items of yam. The prawns have been glorious, although the yam might have used a bit of extra moisture.

Volcano Hub – B+

After all, our go to would not be full with out making an attempt one of many hubs (their code title for particular rolls). I wished to go for the Barbie Hub (for apparent causes), however I could not persuade Tamsen that having asparagus in a roll works if achieved proper, so we went for the Volcano Hub as an alternative. With crab meat, avocado, chopped scallop, spicy mayonnaise, and candy sauce, the Volcano Hub got here with some actually comfortable scallops. The roll was fairly candy with a tasty, tacky layer on prime.

General, the service was moderately pleasant, and the meals was moderately constant. Nevertheless, the meals did not precisely have the wow issue instructed by the restaurant’s Instagram photographs. With common costs and barely above common meals, Sushi Hub must do extra to good its Aburi sushi earlier than attracting crowds.
