A few weeks ago, we went looking for Vincent Sushi on Roncesvalles. Instead, we found that a new sushi shop, Sushi 67, had opened up in that space. (Vincent is now further north). When we went in, we were greeted by enthusiastic "Hellos!" from the waitress and three kitchen staff. When we were seated, we were offered a fragrant and sweet-tasting orange jasmine tea.
The menu shows that the restaurant's theme is fusion cuisine, so initially, we were a bit hesitant. But after trying a yuzu salad, a sushi combo, Roncesvalles roll and unagi fire roll, we were convinced that the Sushi 67 had tasty and high quality sushi. In subsequent visits, we tried the ramen, stuffed cucumber rolls and several more sushi combos. The ramen was ok, but the other items were fresh, unique, and often had a subtle fusion twist. The fish in the sushi combos changed each visit to reflect what was fresh in the market. When we were having the sushi combos, the chef would explain the fish selection and then he would lighten the soy sauce with another sauce. He explained that this would help us taste the freshness of the fish.
Having just visited Kaji in December, we think that the quality of food is approaching that of Kaji. The service and the friendliness exceeds Kaji. I happened to pass by the restaurant the other day around 3pm, and the chef saw me and waved to me.
All and all, excellent food and value. The sushi 10 combo (10 pieces sushi and a roll) is $11.95. The tiny restaurant only has 2 tables and some stools, but they do lots of take out too. The menu is a bit awkwardly worded, but conveys lots of enthusiasm for good food.
