Awhile back I ventured from our haven in the NW to dine with some of my southern peeps – K & J at Sushi Ginza in Willow Park.
Disclaimer: Sushi can be a fickle mistress and my heart will always belong to Shibuya, but it’s nice to see what else is out there for sushi lovers.
Sushi Ginza is located in the heart of the Willow Park shopping area. The restaurant is split into tables and booths and has the quiet, calm ambiance that accompanies most sushi joints.
We started with the assorted tempura and some gyoza. The tempura was hot and tender, and the gyoza was moist, with the wrappers cooked to perfection.
While I’m a big scallop fan, I’m not a big scallop sashimi fan, but I still order it every couple years to remind myself of the fact. That being said, Ginza’s scallop was hella fresh, I’m just not a fan of the nifty seaweed wrapper.
For the sushi rolls themselves we went with:
Avocado Roll: Simple, fresh, clean. J’s personal favourite.
Spicy Tuna Roll: This was my least favourite of the bunch. Didn’t really dig the sauce, maybe because I’m indoctrinated by spicy mayo
Yam Roll: One of my personal favourites. Still hot, wrapping a bit loose
Dynamite Roll: A classic, hard to go wrong with this bad boy
Rainbow Roll: Avocado, salmon, shrimp, tuna and tobiko. Pretty to look at, tasty to eat
Worth noting, the staff/management at Ginza are amazing.
