Yo Sushi, Burnaby - Avoid

Thought we'd try a new sushi place last night, and my husband suggested Yo Sushi, a recent addition to the Heights in Burnaby.

It was awful. I could forgive the loose rolls if they had flavour, or even texture, or if there was even a little evidence of knife skills. Which there wasn't.

There wasn't even sushi rice or a touch of vinegar -- just plain old parboiled rice. It was the worst sushi I can remember, and I've eaten some pretty marginal mall sushi in my time. (Not sure if that disqualifies me from posting on Chowhound?)

One somewhat positive note. We ordered some chicken teriyaki, and it was not too bad. Unfortunately the vegetables accompanying it were mostly undercooked onion.

Oh well. Luckily we can get tasty, well-made, quality sushi down the street at Osaka. And at lower price-points than Yo's.
