After a long day, Monster, ConsultingGirl and I headed to Sushi California to grab some cheap sushi. I’ve been here before, but its still one of those go to places for decent cheap food.
The lines were starting to pile up and they wanted to seat the 3 of us at a 2 person table, but was very very cramped. They were quite hesitant to give us a table of 4 since they know they could seat more people soon. With a little bit of negotiating, the waitress let us sit at a table of 4 instead.
Here is a shot of their menu. They have the usual items and it’s not an overly complicated list.
The combos are pretty well priced too.
Seafood Salad ($5.95) looked very disappointing! it came with a bed of glass noodles, lettuce, cucumbers, and carrots. It is topped with octopus, 2 stick of imitation crab meat, slice of smoked salmon, piece of ebi and wasabi mayo.
This was really not what I was expecting. When did salad come with a bunch of noodles?
The salad also came with a huge side of salad dressing. With the noodles, the salad was a bit soggy to begin with, but the amount of salad dressing was way too much. We only added a little bit to it.
The salad didn’t taste good either. I would never order this again.
Salmon Sashimi (Half Order – $5.50) is a good item to order. It is sliced nice and thick so you get your moneys worth!
Chicken Karrage ($3.95) comes with 6 pieces and was very moist inside.
Spicy Salmon ($2.95) is not on the menu, but Monster didn’t like tuna, so she asked them to substitute and they were able to. It comes with 8 pieces and has enough spice to give your mouth a tingle.
California Roll ($2.95) has the usual imitation crab and avocados. It also comes with 8 pieces.
Chopped Scallop ($3.95) was pretty good and comes with 8 pieces. Similar to most sushi joints.
Spider Roll ($6.95) comes with 6 pieces and has cucumber, lettuce and fried soft shell crab inside.
Overall, this is not the best Japanese restaurant in Coquitlam. It just has cheap affordable sushi. You really get what you pay for. The service is not that great and this place is usually packed.
