Sechelt, $$$ (Larger Priced)

It seems that going to Sunshine Coast isn’t a sure-fire technique to evade Metro Vancouver’s warmth waves. After a brief uphill hike from the coast to Sunnycrest Mall, I felt like a penguin dying of dehydration in a scorching desert. Possibly I am simply not as match as I needs to be. Both method, I ended up participating within the one sport you possibly can maintain doing with out getting scorching—swimming—with a view to burn off a few of the energy from lunch.

Positioned within the core of Sechelt, Sushi Bar 5517 is a Korean-operated sushi restaurant peculiarly named after its avenue quantity. Whereas Sushi Bar Nagomi has a pretty inside, Sushi Bar 5517 has a pretty exterior and appears like it could match completely in a ski resort. The menu is a contemporary one with inventive appetizers and an abundance of particular rolls which have spicy mayonnaise in them.

Tuna Goma-ae – A

Having had a superb tuna poke dish at Sushi Bar Nagomi, I made a decision to order one thing comparable at Sushi Bar 5517—the Tuna Goma-ae. The truth that sake was listed as one of many substances made it all of the extra engaging to me. Though the sake was solely very faintly noticeable, this goma-ae didn’t disappoint. The tuna was very recent, and the soy sauce dressing had a slight however interesting tanginess.

Toro Nigiri – B+

Unagi Nigiri – B+

Amaebi Nigiri – B+

The rice within the nigiri was packed a bit of too tightly, however general, the nigiri was nonetheless respectable. The toro was reasonably tender and had a pleasant creamy flavour. The unagi (eel) was tender and smoky and got here in a beneficiant minimize. The Amaebi Nigiri (spot prawn) was a bit of weak in flavour on account of an overage of rice, however the prawn had an pleasant mild chew.

Lollipop Scallop – B

One appetizer that appeared notably attention-grabbing on the menu was the Lollipop Scallop, which consisted of deep-fried scallop wrapped in zucchini and eggplant with spicy mayonnaise. The very juicy greens had been the very best a part of this dish. Nonetheless, the dish wanted a bit extra teriyaki sauce, and the scallops had been overdone. In the event that they changed the scallop with extra zucchini, this may need been a superb Lollipop Zucchini dish.

Twister Roll – A-

The Twister Roll got here with 2 tempura prawns, avocado, cucumber, tuna, salmon, candy spicy mayonnaise, and BBQ sauce. This was a small however neatly constructed roll. Glorious tender tuna and pleasantly candy sockeye salmon complemented the crispy tempura prawns inside. The sauces had been a bit on the sweeter aspect, however the conservative drizzle of spicy mayonnaise didn’t overwhelm any of the flavours.

General, the meals was pleasant, and the costs had been cheap given the meals high quality and the situation of the restaurant. Nonetheless, the service was reasonably poor. My tea was not refilled at any level throughout my go to, and after I bought as much as pay the invoice and depart, the waitress simply checked out me with out saying something. I felt undesirable and unwelcome on the restaurant. It’s too dangerous that the service ruined what would in any other case have been a strong expertise at Sushi Bar 5517.
