Well I for one just love the stuff cannot get enough some days the smoked ell is just fantastic along with all the other seafood, I must admit I am hooked on this stuff so limit myself to no more than once a month. So as the title states Love It or Leave It.

I really enjoy sushi. Not very much and not real great around here, lol.
I like Anago, Unagi, Tobeko, Hokaigai, Toro, Taco, Amaebi, Uni, Seafood Sonomono Salad, Sake, and most all kinds of Sashimi.
I also like some specialty rolls. When in Victoria we always go to our restaurant on Government Street. Been going for years, and my family is good friends with the owner. Best Sushi in all the land, IMO.:good on ya:

Come to Maple Ridge we have tons of sushi restaurants.
Yep, it always amazes me how sushi restaurants are almost beside each other in the LML. Here, its a new place in Rossland, or go to Nelson. Not usually too great a selection, but at least I can get a bite of toro now and then.

My wife can make it, including rolls, but getting supplies is difficult to say the least.

Love it! Prefer nigiri, sashimi, dynamite, California, octopus.

no farmed crap though.

Wish i I had a freezer cold enough to chow down on my own wild fish, but that's asking for a tape worm.

Either the the seaweed or the soya gives me the Shi-s right after, but I continue to chow ER down.

Leave it. I eat most anything but the 1st time I tried sushi I was not warned that the wasabi, though somewhat similar in looks to Guacamole, should not be consumed in similar volumes. I just about burnt my mouth out and it had turned me off to sushi ever since. Yes, yes, I've had it since but the 1st experience lingers and I'd just as soon leave it as have it.

Love it. Been eating it for decades now. The only thing I can't bring myself to eat is the mackerel. Way too oily for my tastes.

Many, many times I ued to stop in at the Fugiya store on the corner of Clarke Dr. and Venables to pick up Bento boxes for the guys at the plant....

You guys are making me hungry. When I first came out to BC our work grew would go out for lunch once a week and have it. When I switched jobs I would treat myself once a week. You can have a good lunch cheaper and just as fast as going to McDonalds. Not too mention way healthier.

Its a good social meal, one where you can easily sit down and enjoy it in 30mins or less. Or you can take you time chatting and continue ordering more and make a very long dinner out of it.

Funny BW, I work at the office right across the street from Fujiya. usually once a week I HAVE to venture over there for a cheap and fresh couple of trays. Not sure how good it is for you with all the salt in the seaweed and soya, and the carbs in the rice, but I have its just too good to resist.

This little store was three doors down from my Bakery Cafe in Victoria. Needless to say I was soon on a first name basis with the owner....

His take-out counters were only about 24 feet long, but they were full to overflowing with product by 11 a.m. and were very soon picked over... although they worked hard at keeping them stocked, the customer count was such that it was an impossible task.

MMmmm, making me think I haven't been out for some sushi in a long time. Unfortunately the sushi in vic is twice the price for half the quality of the stuff in vancouver & surrounding.

Steve - go to Fujiya on Shelburne in the 3600 block, right across from Fairways Market in Shelburne Plaza.

You'll be pleasantly surprised by both the quality and the pricing.





Oh - take a carry out bag with you. They charge 5 cents for a plastic bag if you want one for your stuff......

I used to like going into the Kamei Sushi place on Kingsway - the one that is upstairs - and sitting at the Robata Bar.

We used to see what was being prepared for others and if it looked good, we'd order it for ourselves.

Went through many a tall flask of sake with our noshing.


Then there is the Ichi Ban Japanese restaurant on Thurlow in downtown Vancouver. It's downstairs from street level - great place to go and eat. :Oh Yeah!:

I don't eat bait. CC on the other hand is a whole different story. She even orders in Japanese which gets very interesting as most sushi places here are run by Koreans. Go figure. Lol

Yes, the jury is definitely still out when it comes to the pros and cons of how nutritious it is. It has far too many simple carbs,,,,,white rice mixed with sugar and vinegar and a lot of sodium. I used to eat it at least once a week several years back but I've cut way back on it except as a cheat meal once in awhile. Some places now are starting to make it with brown rice and will use sockeye instead of farmed salmon which helps those a lot who are more picky about what they put into their bodies. One thing for certain, though, I wouldn't eat it all all if I couldn't dip it in a mixture of soya sauce and wasabi. That is what I love most about eating it! And if it's a big group at an all you can eat,,,,shooters of warm/hot saki to round things out!

On those rare days I have it now I like to fill my face with dynamite and California rolls; tuna, shrimp, and salmon sushi; and lots of pickled ginger.
