Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #236: Kitami Japanese Restaurant


Harrison Sizzling Springs, $$$ (Larger Priced)


After having lunch at Yukiya Sushi, I made a decision it was time for some train with a view to burn off a few of these energy. By train, I meant going to a sizzling springs pool and doing completely nothing for a complete hour. That second was maybe the healthiest I felt your complete month. By the point I bought out of the pool, I felt like I had burned sufficient energy to renew my consuming adventures as soon as once more.



Only a few steps from the core of Harrison Sizzling Springs is Kitami Japanese Restaurant, serving diners who want to have sushi in a barely extra refined setting. Nevertheless, the restaurant had about as a lot life as an deserted mine shaft. All of the personal rooms have been closed off, and it took nearly two minutes earlier than somebody even observed that I had walked into the eating space.

The menu was not expansive however featured many of the typical conventional Japanese dishes. The combos helped to offset the upper costs. I might quickly be taught that the portion sizes have been fairly huge too, because the waitress confirmed real concern after I positioned my order, which consisted of solely a bowl of udon and a sushi combo.

Ebi Tempura Udon – B

The Ebi Tempura Udon got here in a big bowl with two giant prawns and a few appropriately agency udon noodles. The prawns had an excellent snap, however they didn’t style significantly recent and have been coated somewhat closely with batter.

Moriawase (Assorted Nigiri)

To maintain the invoice cheap, I went for the Moriawase combo, which got here with 7 items of nigiri, a tuna roll, and a bowl of miso soup.

Miso Soup – B+

The Miso Soup got here with the standard inexperienced onions and a novel mixture of radish and carrot. This was good for enhancing the flavour of the soup, however I assumed they might’ve lightened up a bit on the radish and carrot in order that we are able to benefit from the soup itself extra.

Ebi Nigiri – C

Unagi Nigiri – B+

The Ebi Nigiri tasted surprisingly bitter and got here with an excessive amount of wasabi. I suppose the ethical of the story is… keep away from Ebi Nigiri in Harrison Sizzling Springs! The Unagi Nigiri, then again, had a pleasantly mushy texture and got here with rice that was not packed too tightly, though barely dry.

Tuna Roll – B+

The Tuna Roll was neatly constructed and got here with wasabi inside. The tuna had a mushy texture, although it was weak in flavour. That is $5 if ordered individually.

Tuna Nigiri – B-

Sockeye Salmon Nigiri – B

Tako Nigiri – B-

Hokkigai Nigiri – B+

Tobiko Nigiri – A-

Onto the highest row, the Tuna Nigiri was mushy however got here with mushy rice. The Sockeye Salmon Nigiri had an attention-grabbing smoked salmon flavour, whereas the Tako Nigiri was somewhat chewy. The plum sauce on the tako and the wasabi inside created an odd mixture of flavours. The Hokkigai Nigiri surprisingly got here with two skinny items of hokkigai, which labored to provide a wealthy sweetness, whereas the Tobiko Nigiri was completely bite-sized with an fulfilling bubbly texture. 

I discovered the service friendlier at Yukiya Sushi, though the standard of the meals between the 2 eating places was related. With barely larger costs at Yukiya Sushi, I can’t definitively say which is the higher alternative out of the 2 eating places. Nevertheless, I can say that each meals have been very filling, and I needed to do barely extra train the subsequent day to burn off these energy. Properly, “barely extra” simply meant really strolling round as an alternative of sitting in a bathtub.
