Kimu Japanese Delicacies (2nd Go to)


Vancouver (Southeast), $ (Funds)

Each semester, I attempt to manage a sushi meet-up so the TAs in my workplace can meet and get to know one another. This time, nevertheless, my makes an attempt to arrange have been kind of a fail. Regardless of drawing an enormous availability schedule that spanned our chalkboard and personally bugging every TA to fill out the schedule, greater than half of the TAs ended up cancelling hours earlier than the dinner for varied causes. One way or the other, 15 confirmed visitors turned 7, and plus-ones nearly outnumbered TAs that truly share the workplace with me. Nonetheless, the dinner went on with Andrea, Angus, Anya, Ashton, Patrick, and Sean in attendance.

Regardless that the restaurant nonetheless shows a “Grand Opening” signal, it has really been open for a lot of months. It has been gaining recognition, and now, it’s certainly one of my go-to locations for informal group dinners.  Their menu options an important assortment of fusion dishes, most of that are Instagram-worthy.

As is common for dinners with me, no ordering came about till round 45 minutes after we had sat down at our desk, by which level the restaurant started to get busy and the service turned sparse. We positioned all our orders on the similar time, however for some motive, my meals got here approach later than anybody else’s.

Stomach King Roll – B+

After awkwardly watching my buddies having fun with their meals for a really very long time (a few of them have been already completed), my Stomach King Roll lastly arrived. This roll got here with avocado, negitoro, seared sake toro (salmon stomach), jalapeño, capers, garlic chips, balsamic discount, and pesto olive sauce. Regardless of its small measurement, the roll was very profitable texture-wise, particularly with the graceful and delicate seared salmon. I assumed the salmon may’ve used a bit extra smokiness although.

Spicy Crunch Roll – B+

Since Sean was with us, we received the compulsory Spicy Crunch Roll. A deep-fried California roll topped with spicy tuna, tobiko, tempura flakes, spicy home sauce, and BBQ sauce, the Spicy Crunch Roll packed a number of flavour, and it was good that the batter was not too laborious. The spicy tuna had a tasty, delicate texture, but it surely was barely overwhelmed by the aggressive use of chili sauce.

Beef Gomae – B

Subsequent, I had the Beef Gomae just because I might by no means seen the dish at another restaurant earlier than. It was basically beef sashimi accompanied by gomae. The meat was tender and went properly with the candy gomae sauce, however the tangy ponzu sauce on the underside complemented neither the meat nor the gomae. I needed to let the ponzu sauce drip down earlier than every chunk.

Rainbow Sushi Pizza – B+

In honour of certainly one of our visitors, who actually likes vibrant issues, I ordered the Rainbow Sushi Pizza, which got here with crab meat, salmon, tuna, ebi, hamachi, tai, unagi, tobiko, BBQ eel, and wasabi mayonnaise. The crispy layer of rice on the backside was barely overdone, however the combination of creamy sauces and clean cuts of fish labored properly. The tai and unagi have been the highlights among the many seafood.

Hamachi Toro Nigiri – A-

Madai Nigiri – A-

Shima-Aji Nigiri – A-

Uni Nigiri – B+

Ordering my nigiri turned out to be fairly laughable for my total desk as a result of that they had run out of many of the costlier forms of nigiri. After having my order rejected repeatedly (feels unhealthy), I lastly ended up with the nigiri above. The nigiri was contemporary and got here in beneficiant cuts. The fragile sweetness of the shima-aji and the graceful texture of the madai have been highlights. There wasn’t a number of uni within the Uni Nigiri, but it surely nonetheless had a pleasant, creamy texture.

Whereas the service was somewhat sparse as we got here at prime time for supper on a Saturday, it was not less than pleasant. As soon as once more, I loved the innovation and the consistency in execution. I can foresee extra adventures to Kimu, as there are nonetheless many inventive dishes that I have not tried but, such because the Dontoro Bites, the Volcano Eggplant Seafood Yaki, and the Honeymoon Roll. Okay, possibly that final one must wait…
