I really really didn’t want to cook, and it was a sunny day and still bright after 6:00pm, so I decided to eat out. Calling the restaurant if there was a seat available, I took a bus to get there.

Shima-Ya Sushi is located in Kensington area, close to 41st and Victoria Drive. They serve mostly Sushi and Sashimi. I ordered Omakase (Chef’s Choice) Nigiri Sushi from their regular menu, as I felt that I deserved to eat good food. 😀 Omakase comes with 10 Nigiri Sushi and Miso Soup.

I couldn’t concentrate well on that day, and I didn’t want to cook at all. I felt like eating Sushi, especially, Nigiri Sushi rather than Sushi bowl or rolls. I looked for a place, and this restaurant came up in my mind. When I called them if I can seat right away, she nicely told me that they were busy right now but it would be better in 30 min and there would be a seat open in the counter if I come by myself.

Shima-Ya Sushi is located in Kensington area, close to 41st and Victoria Drive. From Joyce Skytrain station, it takes 10 min by bus. They serve mostly Sushi and Sashimi. I didn’t see any of meat stuff, such as Karaage.

I ordered from their regular menu and fresh item. Assorted sushi comes with 7 Nigiri Sushi and 1 tuna roll, and deluxe assorted sushi comes with 2 additional Nigiri. I wanted to eat Ikura and Aji (Horse Mackerel), so I chose the regular assorted one.

Aji (Horse Mackerel) was sold out, and the server recommended Sayori (Halfbeak) from their fresh sheet. I don’t know if I have eaten it before, especially as raw.

They have Japanese confections, such as Mitsumame and Anmitsu, which I wanted to try but I was too full. Maybe, next time!
