Last week, I had sushi twice – once at the fabulous Momo Sushi in Gastown with my friend Susan, and once last night as takeout from Osaka Sushi just down the street.
As I was too busy enjoying myself with Susan, I forgot to take any pictures of the amazing sushi we had at Momo (and I promise I’ll do it next time), but Osaka Sushi is the kind of homey restaurant I like to discover. It’s going to be one of my go-to pick up a bite to eat places on my way home from work. Or, as it was last night, on my way home from a drink with my friend Natasha across the Granville Street Bridge (see above). I had a drink, then walked home across the bridge, enjoying the view and trying to remember what I could have to eat at home. When I realized what I was thinking was microwave popcorn, I started considering some takeout and remembered Osaka. I haven’t been there for years, but remembered it fondly.
This is what I got for $8.35 – $10 including a tip. And every bite was perfect. Now it’s not exactly sushi, though the California roll was terrific. Everything was terrific. The miso soup was the best I’ve had in a while, the tempura was light and, obviously, the oil was fresh. The salad was crispy, the dressing light, and the teriyaki was sweet and perfect. I loved it.
And, as you can see, it was so much food, I had to save the California roll to have with the end of the movie.
Osaka Sushi is on my permanent go-to list.
