Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #235: Yukiya Sushi

Harrison Sizzling Springs, $$$$ (Luxurious)

What do I do on a nice, sunny day with no commitments? Bussing to faraway locations has all the time been one in every of my favorite pastimes, so I took the chance to analysis the farthest eastward I can bus and nonetheless make it again dwelling on the identical day. It seems that I can bus all the way in which to Harrison Sizzling Springs. 4.5 hours of journey time to get there? No drawback. Nicely, aside from the truth that I used my cellphone a lot alongside the way in which that I ended up at Harrison Sizzling Springs with 5% left on the battery… whoops.

Harrison Sizzling Springs is dwelling to 2 sushi eating places: Yukiya Sushi and Kitami Japanese Restaurant. Yukiya is the extra informal of the 2, with fundamental picket tables and a mixture of folding and non-folding chairs. I heard each Chinese language and Korean spoken among the many employees.

Thankfully, the employees have been very pleasant, and so they made each effort to replenish my cellphone battery. With that, I now not needed to fear about counting on my digicam for the time and the solar for the course. I loved the beautiful view of the mountains behind Harrison Lake as I waited for my meals to reach.

Dragon Roll – B-

First to return was the Dragon Roll, which featured prawn tempura, imitation crab meat, BBQ eel, and avocado. At $19, this was fairly costly by Vancouver requirements, however in Harrison Sizzling Springs, your selections for sushi are restricted. The prawn tempura was pleasantly crispy, and the imitation crab meat had a pleasant sweetness to it. Nevertheless, the avocado was not sufficiently ripe, and the unagi was not as smoky and gentle because it ought to’ve been. The vinegar on the sushi rice was barely heavy.

Hen Teriyaki & Sashimi Bento

I didn’t count on the Hen Teriyaki & Sashimi Bento ($19) to be significantly filling, and nothing may’ve ready me for the way the sashimi was offered. By no means would I’ve anticipated an overflowing salad filled with what regarded like one million totally different items of sashimi. This might need been extra aptly named the Hen Teriyaki & Big Sashimi Salad Bento.

Salad – C+

The Salad was a cabbage-based salad with a couple of slices of carrot inside. It was dressed with a candy and tangy apple French dressing. Higher flavour pairings have been potential, because the acidity of the French dressing made it style like one thing had gone unhealthy.

Hen Teriyaki – B+

The Hen Teriyaki was spiced and tender, and the black pepper sprinkled on the rice made it extra flavourful. The rooster tasted prefer it got here out of a western restaurant reasonably than a Japanese one, however it was decently ready nonetheless.

Gyoza – B-

The 2 items of Gyoza have been served at an appropriately extreme temperature and primarily crammed with cabbage and pork. The inside was very juicy however a tad mushy. In the meantime, the outside had enough crispiness, however components of it tasted floury. 

Scallop Sashimi – B+

Tai Sashimi – A-

Hokkigai Sashimi – B-

Tuna Sashimi – B

Salmon Sashimi – A-

Ebi Sashimi – C

The Sashimi was assorted by way of each selection and ranges of freshness. On the high of the freshness scale was the tai (snapper), which was surprisingly gentle with a scrumptious candy flavour, and the salmon, which was vibrantly contemporary and buttery. On the backside was the ebi, which was reasonably dry and flavourless.

General, my expertise was not removed from what I had anticipated. The meals high quality was not nice, however I suppose it was satisfactory. Costs have been very excessive in comparison with what may be present in Vancouver, however that applies to most of Harrison Sizzling Springs resulting from greater transportation prices and decrease competitors.
