Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #231: Ebisu on Broadway

Vancouver (Northwest), $$$ (Greater Priced)

There are two issues I like about Ebisu: sushi boats and comparatively low cost drinks. Ebisu’s means to accommodate massive teams and its intensive menu (with gadgets in several value ranges) makes it good for bigger gatherings. Since my own residence shouldn’t be precisely match for partying in, I ceaselessly consult with the 2 Vancouver Ebisu places as my get together properties.

To have fun the tip of one other thrilling semester of TAing, I held an end-of-semester sushi journey with fellow TAs Angus, Anya, Chris, Jeff and Maria. We have been solely in a position to make it for lunch, so we saved the comparatively low cost drinks to a minimal. Most significantly, I had to make sure that I wasn’t giving every thing an A+. We focussed on having fun with our appetizers, rolls, and boats.

Miso Soup – A-

My first merchandise to reach was the Miso Soup from my BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat. The Miso Soup contained tofu, inexperienced onion, and seaweed. It was gentle and well-balanced.

BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat

The BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat got here with two half rolls, a small unagi don, hen karaage, assorted tempura, and two orange slices. For $13.95, the worth was actually there.

Dynamite Roll – B+

A mixture of crunchy prawn tempura, crunchy cucumber, and candy creamy mayonnaise made the Dynamite Roll a delight. The items have been additionally dimension.

California Roll – B

The California Roll was commonplace fare. The avocado slices have been on the bigger aspect, and the imitation crab was sufficiently candy.

Unagi Don – A-

The Unagi Don comes with three items of sentimental unagi, which had an fragrant smokiness. The seaweed on prime supplied further flavour to the don and complemented the steamed rice.

Rooster Karaage – B+

The Rooster Karaage got here with tender, crispy hen. Nonetheless, I assumed that some spices would assist enliven the flavour.

Assorted Tempura – B+

Subsequent up, the Assorted Tempura got here with two prawns and one piece every of kabocha, yam and carrot. The prawns have been meaty, juicy, and crispy, although barely oily. The kabocha was barely mushy, whereas the yam and carrot have been steadiness of candy and savoury flavours.

Orange Slices – C

The one actual flop of the boat was the Orange Slices. Lower into small, simply manageable items, the Orange Slices have been juicy, however they have been among the sourest orange slices I’ve ever had. They could as effectively have been lemon slices. (Sure, I did write down notes on my orange slices, and sure, everybody was eagerly ready for this second.)

Moreover the sushi boats, one different nice deal on the lunch menu was the three for $12.99 lunch particular, the place you possibly can select 3 gadgets from a choose record of round 50 gadgets (plus a miso soup, steamed rice, or gentle drink) for simply $12.99. Since my urge for food doesn’t get up till late afternoon, I opted for only one merchandise from the record (for $4.99).

BC Blazer (half order) – A-

Among the many most deluxe gadgets featured within the particular was the BC Blazer, a roll with seared salmon, bonito flakes, and inexperienced onion on prime of a California roll. This can be a roll I might come to order once more on subsequent visits. General, the roll had a wealthy, creamy, candy flavour and was a pleasing amalgamation of sentimental textures. The inexperienced onion and bonito flakes on prime of the roll supplied a small quantity of crunch for textural distinction.

Salad – B+ 

Someway, within the midst of my note-taking, I ended up jacking somebody’s Salad to attempt myself. With copious quantities of French dressing dressing, the lettuce-based Salad was delectably creamy and savoury.

Mentaiko Yaki Udon – A

The Mentaiko Yaki Udon was a hidden gem within the menu that I might in all probability by no means have come throughout had Chris not provided to separate it with me. The wealthy, savoury udon noodles had simply the correct amount of firmness, whereas a mildly detectable spiciness brings the dish to life. The creamy roe has a pleasing bubbly texture and works splendidly towards the udon noodles. The very best a part of this yakiudon is the way it would not have the charred, greasy flavour of most yakiudon dishes however nonetheless packs loads of flavour.

General, the workers was pleasant and accommodating. In contrast to the Robson location, which may get dear throughout prime dinner hours, the Broadway location provides fairly value meals at any hour of the day. There are lunch specials, blissful hour specials, and dinner boats which can be deal when you have at the least two folks in your group and may eat a good quantity. The drinks are additionally barely cheaper on the Broadway location. That being mentioned, the Robson location has its personal benefits too (to be mentioned in a future episode).
