Yoko Japanese Restaurant in North York

Yoko is a small Japanese restaurant, Korean owned, close to Kennedy and Finch that offers good food priced reasonably. 490 McNicoll Ave, 416-502-9750.

I like their lunch sushi combo. They first serve you miso soup and a simple but tasty green salada with rice noodle and vinaigrette dressing. See photo at

A small serving of grilled mackerel follows. The lemon helps to cut down the oil. See photo at

The sushi plate usually has three pieces of salmon, one piece of tuna, one piece of bbq eel, one piece of white tuna and one piece of some other fish, plus three pieces of california roll and three pieces of tuna or salmon roll. See photo at

Meal finishes with dessert, half orange and two small pieces of honeydew. See photo at

The combo is only $9.95 and includes hot tea. I find it a good value. It is not the best sushi in town, but it is pretty good if you are in the area and feel like having something healthy for lunch, instead of a burger or pizza.

I also like their spicy salmon temaki and maki. The maki (six pieces) is better in my personal opinion. For cold days, their udon is not bad, and comes with tasty small side dishes.

The restaurant is slightly understaffed, so if you go when it is busy, expect to wait for service. The tables in the booths have neat buttons you can press to request service, like in planes. Friday is the worst day to go because they are usually very busy.

Oh, before somebody says something nasty, all pictures above were taken without using flash.
