Somewhere down the road, I started to think of sushi as comfort food. I love Japanese food, and nothing gives me more pleasure than finding out-of-the-way restaurants that prepare good sushi.
At Station Square mall, beside Metropolis at Metrotown, there’s a small Japanese restaurant called Yakko Sushi. It’s not a fancy place, just a few tables. I’ve been there a few times, and I’ve always found the service attentive and the food good. The prices are competitive.
I had the California Combo ($8.99) and it consisted of 2 pieces each of tuna, salmon & ebi sushi and a California Roll. Not a bad deal for a lot of food. And it was very good and very fresh.
I also had the Appetizer-Size Tempura ($5.50) I thought it was a little pricey for the amount of tempura you get. The tempura sauce was very good, and the tempura wasn’t very oily, which I liked.
I would come back again, next time probably for lunch since I work so close. They have a special on right now – from 11 am until 2:30pm they pay the HST. Very clever way to get new lunch customers.
