Carp Sushi and Bento is a little Japanese take out restaurant located near Kingsgate Mall. A friend of ours highly recommended this place for their sashimi and rolls.
M and I decided to come here after work for a quick dinner, it would have been quicker, but I ended up wanting to try so many items off the menu. Sometimes I can be such a pig.
Once you walk inside this small space, you will see a few things for take out in the fridge, a counter, and 3 tables.
I think they can fit about 10 people in here. Maybe less?
We put in our order at the counter, paid and found a seat. They also have a kids combo too.
You can find other items on their chalk board.
They gave us hot tea as we waited for our meal to be prepared.
I couldn’t stop staring at this moo-cow creamer as their soy sauce dispenser. Super cute.
Salmon and Tuna Sashimi were very good quality. That tuna was so fatty, that it might as well just be toro. 10 pieces of $12 isn’t bad considering the quality of it.
Moo-cow creamer in action with the soy sauce coming out of its nose.
Tuna Tataki Salad has the tuna tataki on the bottom topped with greens and a light dressing.
Truffled Mashed Potato was surprisingly good. The truffle is subtle, but it works well together as a side item to your meal. It is served cold.
Mini Japanese Curry comes in a small bowl, think of it as a little taster.
Sea Eel Candied Salmon Roll comes with 8 pieces. avocado, cucumber and candied salmon on the inside topped with the eel.
OMG Roll has 8 pieces as well. It is topped with spicy salmon and these crunchy ball bits. Good rolls as well.
Inari is a tofu pocket with rice, seasoning and these tiny crunchy balls. Good and simple.
Cone trio comes with California cone, crunchy prawn cone and a spicy tuna cone. All three were tasty and put together well.
Sesame Ice Cream and Green Tea Ice Cream was a nice sweet treat to end the meal.
Overall, all the items were really good. If you want to try a bit of everything and not want to spend too much, the bento boxes are a great option for under $10.
I would come here again. Awesome hidden gem.
