Isami Sushi is a small Japanese Sushi Restaurant located on Kingsway, Burnaby. The location is easy to find, but it’s no parking beside. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I had a dinner at this place. We arrived at the Isami Sushi around 6 pm. It was super busy. We had to stand outside and waited for a while to get into the restaurant.
Once we got into the restaurant, it has already passed 7 pm. We sat down at the Sushi Bar. The server noticed us that our food would take a little bit longer to come. We were fine with that. We have ordered Beef Tataki, Jo Sashimi, Una -Ju, and Eskimo Roll to share. Actually, it was faster than we thought to be. Jo Sashimi was a little bit pricey, which included 7 different kinds of Sashimi. They were all very fresh. Beef Tataki was different from other places. The beef slices were very small, but the taste was very delicious. I enjoyed the crispy fried onions on the top. My favorite dish is Una-Ju. It made by BBQ fresh water eel basted in demi-glaze sauce and served on rice. It was my first time having this food. The rice was soft, which was a great combination of BBQ water eel. The demi-glaze sauce was very well used on eels. I love it so much. It was very tasty. The last dish was Eskimo Roll. It was California roll, topped with BBQ salmon, green onion & special sauce. I like the BBQ Salmon and Green onion on top. The price of the food was a little bit expensive. The taste of the food was very authentic. It was owned by Japanese people and all the servers and chefs are all Japanese. It was a great place to eat Japanese food.
