Official Launch @ Kanji Sushi

Kanji Sushi (@KanjiToronto) first opened its doors a few months ago and just recently hosted their official launch party. Located in Parkdale, Kanji Sushi is a very urban and chic space. Not being your average sushi restaurant - Kanji is a very contemporary venue that gives off a bar feel with a lounge area with comfy couches situated on one side and a sit down area in the other. And with all the loud music blasting in the background – Yes, I literally felt like I was in a club (lol)

The interior is very hip and somewhat dark (for a sushi restaurant – I brightened the picture for the sake of showing you guys) – almost felt like an underground venue

Sorry about the lighting of the next new photos: it was getting extremely dark so I had to photoshop it a bit 

These were the special cocktails of the night they were promoting: Starting from the drink on the bottom right

  • Mantango – the best one of the three: it was a close representation of whiskey sour 
  • Plum Negroni
  • Ginger Mojito (far back)

Waiting for the next batch of sushi :)

My favourite and most memorable dish of the next was definitely the Sushi Tortilla – sushi salmon, mashed avocado, cilantro, red onion, jalapeno, grape tomato, eel sauce and wasabi mayo. I love salmon. I love avocado and cilantro – so the generous combinations of the above served on a chip was uber delish! My tastedbuds were totally bombarded with sweet flavours at first, then the red onion slowly started to overpower the whole dish. Although it was messy to eat, I left wanting more!

Fish and Chip – chopped salmon on a Pringle – simple yet creative :D

I managed to try a little bit of everything: sushi, maki and my favourite Sushi Tortilla :D

    How would you rate the freshness of the salmon? What about the rice used in the salmon nigiri?
    Some of the items seem very very fusion, and that’s usually a bit of a concern. The place definitely feels more like a lounge than a proper restaurant, focusing more on drink sales than proper food. Thoughts?
