Sushi Den is a newer Japanese Restaurant on the border of Gastown and Chinatown. It’s located close to Stadium Skytrain and Tinseltown. I came here during lunch with my coworker for something fast. I can see them being popular for take out.
I have come here a few times and I usually get the same bento box.
Nigiri Bento Box ($12) comes with agedashi tofu, salad, assorted tempura, miso soup and 5 pieces of nigiri. The bento box is very large and easily fills me up for lunch.
Miso soup came fairly quickly and tasted good. It had bits of tofu and green onions inside.
There were 5 pieces of nigiri – 1 ebi, 2 tuna and 2 salmon. It tasted fresh good and no problems.
The agedashi tofu is very hot, so you need to wait a bit before eating. When you leave it in the sauce for a while, the skin around the tofu gets very gummy and slimy. Weird texture, but I still liked the tofu inside.
Assorted Tempura was heavily battered and was very crunchy. It stays crunch for a long time and doesn’t get soggy.
Overall, the food is average and in a very good location. The service is not very good. You won’t find anything amazing here, but the prices are fair.
