Sushi and Tea (Mt. Pleasant) - review

Decided to try this new sushi joint in my nabe (Mt. Pleasant between Eglinton and Davisville). Noticed they had an "all-you-can" offer, so I figured this would be a good way to sample their menu. ($19.99 on the weekend).

First pleasant surprise was the seaweed salad (don't remember the Japanese name), which had large "leaves" of seaweed in a light dressing, with pieces of surf clam and octopus sashimi. Very tasty, and it went well with the seafood soup, which was loaded with thin slivers of fish and crab/surimi.

Next tried a round of sushi and sashimi, of which there was a wider variety to choose from than most places that offer this type of deal. The red snapper sashimi melted in my mouth.

The only dish I tried I wasn't crazy about was the cold tofu, which was exactly as advertised - 4 cubes of raw tofu, dusted with fish and seaweed flakes.

Next, a couple of hot dishes, which were average quality but still tasty - the spicy bulgogi wasn't too overpowering, just a pleasant kick. Also went for salmon teriyaki and gyoza.

Finished over with a decent-sized scoop of green tea ice cream, which was greener than most I've seen.

Verdict: I'll go back, and go for some of those dishes on the regular menu. The place passed my crucial test for Japanese/Korean food: no indigestion afterwards.
