Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #234: Hon Sushi

Burnaby South, $$ (Reasonably Priced)

For the longest time, I didn’t have any knowledge on my telephone. Whereas this meant rejuvenating, undisturbed naps on the bus and $15/month telephone payments, there have been additionally some drawbacks. I typically needed to depend on the facility of luck and random guessing to find issues, and assembly up with buddies I had forgotten to get the numbers of typically was a nightmare. Nevertheless, what actually introduced issues to gentle was this one time I went to a restaurant with no Wi-Fi to take pleasure in some XLBs with my household when rapidly, I opened Snapchat to see an hourglass subsequent to a three-digit streak. My world was about to collapse.

I instantly dropped the XLB I used to be holding, ran out to the road, after which stood outdoors every restaurant to see if it had free Wi-Fi I may borrow for only one minute. Pedestrians had been watching me with involved appears to be like on their faces. Happily, I managed to save lots of mentioned streak, and after a number of awkward moments with my dad and mom, I completed my dinner in peace. To forestall this from ever taking place once more, I went to Metrotown, bought an information plan, and proceeded to close by Hon Sushi to have a good time my victory towards the no-data life.

Hon Sushi is a big Korean-Japanese fusion restaurant situated on Kingsway close to Previous Orchard Purchasing Centre. The eating room was not the one factor that was giant. The menu was so huge that it took me a superb 10 minutes simply to learn via it. There have been 3 pages of Korean dishes, they usually even served the massive Korean scorching plates with toppings alongside the circumference of the plate (the type discovered at Ta Bom).

Takoyaki – A

My lunch began off with a really scrumptious serving of Takoyaki (octopus balls). The balls weren’t very giant, however they had been tender and pillowy with a superb crispy exterior. Inside every ball was a flavourful piece of octopus with simply the correct amount of chew. On prime had been well-balanced drizzles of candy takoyaki sauce and mayonnaise.

Chopped Scallop Nigiri – B+

Unagi Nigiri – B+

Tuna Nigiri – B

Salmon Nigiri – B+

The rice within the Chopped Scallop Nigiri was a bit too tightly packed and under-flavoured (as with the remainder of the nigiri), however the candy scallop on prime tasted recent. The unagi had a smoky flavour and was amply dressed, whereas the tuna exhibited an honest tender texture. The salmon was pleasantly buttery and recent.

Aburi Tuna Nigiri – B-

Aburi Salmon Nigiri – B+

The Aburi Tuna Nigiri lacked flavour and was slightly over-seared. The rice right here wanted extra flavour as properly. Nevertheless, the Aburi Salmon Nigiri had a scrumptious, smoky flavour, and the juiciness of the salmon was preserved via the searing.

Angel Roll – C

Hoping to finish my meal with a heavenly roll, I selected the Angel Roll, which got here with tempura prawn, imitation crab, scallop, cucumber, avocado, and cheese. The idea was promising, however the execution was flawed. The scallops had been over-seared (and thus arduous), whereas the crab meat ended up being mushy. The mushy crab meat was paired with mushy rice. The cheese was not melted into the roll correctly, and the scallops stored falling off the roll. It was as if an angel constructed the roll after consuming 24 photographs of vodka. The one factor this roll had going for it was the prawn tempura… after being pulled other than the roll.

Service was not an issue throughout my go to, however the sushi rice clearly wanted enchancment. The one merchandise that I had with none sushi rice (the Takoyaki) was very properly executed. I didn’t strive any of the Korean menu gadgets, however maybe (and hopefully) they’re slightly extra angelic than the Japanese dishes.
