Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #231: Ebisu on Broadway


Vancouver (Northwest), $$$ (Greater Priced)

There are two issues I like about Ebisu: sushi boats and comparatively low cost drinks. Ebisu’s means to accommodate giant teams and its in depth menu (with objects in numerous value ranges) makes it excellent for bigger gatherings. Since my own residence isn’t precisely match for partying in, I incessantly check with the 2 Vancouver Ebisu areas as my celebration houses.

To rejoice the tip of one other thrilling semester of TAing, I held an end-of-semester sushi journey with fellow TAs Angus, Anya, Chris, Jeff and Maria. We had been solely capable of make it for lunch, so we stored the comparatively low cost drinks to a minimal. Most significantly, I had to make sure that I wasn’t giving the whole lot an A+. We focussed on having fun with our appetizers, rolls, and boats.

Miso Soup – A-

My first merchandise to reach was the Miso Soup from my BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat. The Miso Soup contained tofu, inexperienced onion, and seaweed. It was gentle and well-balanced.

BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat

The BBQ Unagi & Roll Boat got here with two half rolls, a small unagi don, rooster karaage, assorted tempura, and two orange slices. For $13.95, the worth was definitely there.

Dynamite Roll – B+

A mix of crunchy prawn tempura, crunchy cucumber, and candy creamy mayonnaise made the Dynamite Roll a delight. The items had been additionally a very good dimension.

California Roll – B

The California Roll was normal fare. The avocado slices had been on the bigger facet, and the imitation crab was sufficiently candy.

Unagi Don – A-

The Unagi Don comes with three items of sentimental unagi, which had an fragrant smokiness. The seaweed on prime supplied additional flavour to the don and complemented the steamed rice.

Rooster Karaage – B+

The Rooster Karaage got here with tender, crispy rooster. Nevertheless, I believed that some spices would assist brighten up the flavour.

Assorted Tempura – B+

Subsequent up, the Assorted Tempura got here with two prawns and one piece every of kabocha, yam and carrot. The prawns had been meaty, juicy, and crispy, although barely oily. The kabocha was barely mushy, whereas the yam and carrot had been a very good steadiness of candy and savoury flavours.

Orange Slices – C

The one actual flop of the boat was the Orange Slices. Lower into small, simply manageable items, the Orange Slices had been juicy, however they had been among the sourest orange slices I’ve ever had. They could as nicely have been lemon slices. (Sure, I did write down notes on my orange slices, and sure, everybody was eagerly ready for this second.)

Apart from the sushi boats, one different nice deal on the lunch menu was the three for $12.99 lunch particular, the place you possibly can select 3 objects from a choose record of round 50 objects (plus a miso soup, steamed rice, or gentle drink) for simply $12.99. Since my urge for food doesn’t get up till late afternoon, I opted for only one merchandise from the record (for $4.99).

BC Blazer (half order) – A-

Among the many most deluxe objects featured within the particular was the BC Blazer, a roll with seared salmon, bonito flakes, and inexperienced onion on prime of a California roll. This can be a roll I might come to order once more on subsequent visits. General, the roll had a wealthy, creamy, candy flavour and was a nice amalgamation of sentimental textures. The inexperienced onion and bonito flakes on prime of the roll supplied a small quantity of crunch for textural distinction.

Salad – B+ 

By some means, within the midst of my note-taking, I ended up jacking somebody’s Salad to attempt myself. With copious quantities of French dressing dressing, the lettuce-based Salad was delectably creamy and savoury.

Mentaiko Yaki Udon – A

The Mentaiko Yaki Udon was a hidden gem within the menu that I might most likely by no means have come throughout had Chris not provided to separate it with me. The wealthy, savoury udon noodles had simply the correct quantity of firmness, whereas a mildly detectable spiciness brings the dish to life. The creamy roe has a nice bubbly texture and works splendidly in opposition to the udon noodles. The perfect a part of this yakiudon is the way it would not have the charred, greasy flavour of most yakiudon dishes however nonetheless packs loads of flavour.

General, the employees was pleasant and accommodating. In contrast to the Robson location, which might get dear throughout prime dinner hours, the Broadway location affords fairly value meals at any hour of the day. There are lunch specials, blissful hour specials, and dinner boats which might be a very good deal you probably have no less than two individuals in your group and might eat a good quantity. The drinks are additionally barely cheaper on the Broadway location. That being stated, the Robson location has its personal benefits too (to be mentioned in a future episode).
