One night in June, Collin said he wanted to eat Sushi for dinner, but he was so hungry that he couldn’t wait in line. I was thinking where we can go and remembered that my friend had told me that there was a new Japanese restaurant open on Kingsway, close to Nanaimo street and it wasn’t bad. Although we had to take a bus to get there, we decided to go.

Sushi By Yuji is probably in 15 min walk from Nanaimo Skytrain station. They serve mainly Sushi, but there are some appetizer like Gyoza, and some dessert, on the menu, too.

We ordered from their regular menu and special on the board.

Hamachi & Avocado roll was on their special, which was so good. Surprisingly, the Ebi & Asparagus roll was simple but so good, too.

Negitoro with Egg

This was new to me. Negitoro with roe quail egg. Negitoro is chopped fatty tuna and green onion. I saw this on someone’s blog and had to order! This was good! It looked small, but it got mouthful. 🙂

And, an extra picture of the restaurant exterior.

Overall, Sushi was good. If the restaurant was packed, there would be some slowness, because there is only one chef working. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. You can choose the size of rice for Nigiri! In Japan, Sushi tends to use quite small amount of rice, which is designed for bite-size.

I like their Facebook page shows what kind of fish just gets delivered, which looks so fresh and clean!

In the middle of April, my co-worker told me that there was an announcement from Whistler Blackcomb, which a lift ticket for BC residents would be 50% off on that coming Sunday. Although it hadn’t snowed much, we decided to go! We headed there the night before and had dinner in Whistler.

We went to Sachi Sushi. They are a Japanese restaurant and serve Izakaya style dishes, in addition to Sushi. My co-worker seems to know the owner for a long time.
