Raymond’s Sushi Adventures: Episode #235: Yukiya Sushi


Harrison Sizzling Springs, $$$$ (Luxurious)

What do I do on a advantageous, sunny day with no commitments? Bussing to faraway locations has at all times been one in all my favorite pastimes, so I took the chance to analysis the farthest eastward I can bus and nonetheless make it again residence on the identical day. It seems that I can bus all the way in which to Harrison Sizzling Springs. 4.5 hours of journey time to get there? No drawback. Properly, apart from the truth that I used my cellphone a lot alongside the way in which that I ended up at Harrison Sizzling Springs with 5% left on the battery… whoops.

Harrison Sizzling Springs is residence to 2 sushi eating places: Yukiya Sushi and Kitami Japanese Restaurant. Yukiya is the extra informal of the 2, with fundamental picket tables and a mixture of folding and non-folding chairs. I heard each Chinese language and Korean spoken among the many workers.

Luckily, the workers have been very pleasant, and so they made each effort to replenish my cellphone battery. With that, I now not needed to fear about counting on my digital camera for the time and the solar for the course. I loved the beautiful view of the mountains behind Harrison Lake as I waited for my meals to reach.

Dragon Roll – B-

First to come back was the Dragon Roll, which featured prawn tempura, imitation crab meat, BBQ eel, and avocado. At $19, this was fairly costly by Vancouver requirements, however in Harrison Sizzling Springs, your decisions for sushi are restricted. The prawn tempura was pleasantly crispy, and the imitation crab meat had a pleasant sweetness to it. Nevertheless, the avocado was not sufficiently ripe, and the unagi was not as smoky and smooth because it ought to’ve been. The vinegar on the sushi rice was barely heavy.

Hen Teriyaki & Sashimi Bento

I didn’t count on the Hen Teriyaki & Sashimi Bento ($19) to be significantly filling, and nothing might’ve ready me for a way the sashimi was introduced. By no means would I’ve anticipated an overflowing salad full of what seemed like 1,000,000 completely different items of sashimi. This might need been extra aptly named the Hen Teriyaki & Big Sashimi Salad Bento.

Salad – C+

The Salad was a cabbage-based salad with a number of slices of carrot inside. It was dressed with a candy and tangy apple French dressing. Higher flavour pairings have been doable, because the acidity of the French dressing made it style like one thing had gone unhealthy.

Hen Teriyaki – B+

The Hen Teriyaki was spiced and tender, and the black pepper sprinkled on the rice made it extra flavourful. The rooster tasted prefer it got here out of a western restaurant quite than a Japanese one, however it was decently ready nonetheless.

Gyoza – B-

The 2 items of Gyoza have been served at an appropriately high temperature and primarily full of cabbage and pork. The inside was very juicy however a tad mushy. In the meantime, the outside had adequate crispiness, however elements of it tasted floury. 

Scallop Sashimi – B+

Tai Sashimi – A-

Hokkigai Sashimi – B-

Tuna Sashimi – B

Salmon Sashimi – A-

Ebi Sashimi – C

The Sashimi was assorted by way of each selection and ranges of freshness. On the high of the freshness scale was the tai (snapper), which was surprisingly smooth with a scrumptious candy flavour, and the salmon, which was vibrantly contemporary and buttery. On the backside was the ebi, which was quite dry and flavourless.

General, my expertise was not removed from what I had anticipated. The meals high quality was not nice, however I suppose it was satisfactory. Costs have been very excessive in comparison with what may be present in Vancouver, however that applies to most of Harrison Sizzling Springs attributable to larger transportation prices and decrease competitors.
