Do NOT order omakase at Jun i

The Chemist | Sep 28, 201108:38 PM

Just came back from Jun i. I hate giving a negative recommendation about anything but I want to spare people the same experience that my group had tonight. The three of us wanted to celebrate and decided to hit up Jun i for omakase, something that we had heard was well worth it. We've each been to Jun i before and found it pricey but well worth it.

After being informed that our first two choices of seafood were not available (I always order uni or surf clam) and then waiting more than an hour (and seeing many many plates go out to tables that had arrived WELL after us), our first and ONLY course arrives. Basically, we got an order of assorted sushi. There were 3 rolls, 4 nigiri, and 6 pieces of sashimi. This was the sum total for the 3 of us. Nothing special either, more or less the first items on the menu. One of the maki was a cucumber roll, for example. This privilege wasn't inexpensive or even divisible by 3, for that matter. I found this odd particularly as the main chef was working tonight.

The sushi we received was okay but not much better than average for Montreal. The best part of the meal was the beer which the server claimed was brewed specially from DDC.

Anywho, just a heads up. If you go to Jun i, order for yourself and don't go the Omakase route.
