Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #239: Sushi Bar 5517


Sechelt, $$$ (Increased Priced)


It seems that going to Sunshine Coast isn’t a sure-fire technique to evade Metro Vancouver’s warmth waves. After a brief uphill hike from the coast to Sunnycrest Mall, I felt like a penguin dying of dehydration in a scorching desert. Perhaps I am simply not as match as I needs to be. Both manner, I ended up participating within the one sport you may hold doing with out getting scorching—swimming—with the intention to burn off a number of the energy from lunch.

Situated within the core of Sechelt, Sushi Bar 5517 is a Korean-operated sushi restaurant peculiarly named after its road quantity. Whereas Sushi Bar Nagomi has a beautiful inside, Sushi Bar 5517 has a beautiful exterior and appears like it might match completely in a ski resort. The menu is a contemporary one with artistic appetizers and an abundance of particular rolls which have spicy mayonnaise in them.

Tuna Goma-ae – A

Having had a wonderful tuna poke dish at Sushi Bar Nagomi, I made a decision to order one thing comparable at Sushi Bar 5517—the Tuna Goma-ae. The truth that sake was listed as one of many substances made it all of the extra enticing to me. Though the sake was solely very faintly noticeable, this goma-ae didn’t disappoint. The tuna was very contemporary, and the soy sauce dressing had a slight however interesting tanginess.

Toro Nigiri – B+

Unagi Nigiri – B+

Amaebi Nigiri – B+

The rice within the nigiri was packed slightly too tightly, however total, the nigiri was nonetheless respectable. The toro was reasonably comfortable and had a pleasant creamy flavour. The unagi (eel) was comfortable and smoky and got here in a beneficiant lower. The Amaebi Nigiri (spot prawn) was slightly weak in flavour on account of an overage of rice, however the prawn had an fulfilling gentle chew.

Lollipop Scallop – B

One appetizer that regarded notably attention-grabbing on the menu was the Lollipop Scallop, which consisted of deep-fried scallop wrapped in zucchini and eggplant with spicy mayonnaise. The very juicy greens had been the perfect a part of this dish. Nonetheless, the dish wanted a bit extra teriyaki sauce, and the scallops had been overdone. In the event that they changed the scallop with extra zucchini, this may need been a wonderful Lollipop Zucchini dish.

Twister Roll – A-

The Twister Roll got here with 2 tempura prawns, avocado, cucumber, tuna, salmon, candy spicy mayonnaise, and BBQ sauce. This was a small however neatly constructed roll. Wonderful comfortable tuna and pleasantly candy sockeye salmon complemented the crispy tempura prawns inside. The sauces had been a bit on the sweeter aspect, however the conservative drizzle of spicy mayonnaise didn’t overwhelm any of the flavours.

Total, the meals was fulfilling, and the costs had been affordable given the meals high quality and the situation of the restaurant. Nonetheless, the service was quite poor. My tea was not refilled at any level throughout my go to, and once I acquired as much as pay the invoice and depart, the waitress simply checked out me with out saying something. I felt undesirable and unwelcome on the restaurant. It’s too unhealthy that the service ruined what would in any other case have been a stable expertise at Sushi Bar 5517.
