Yuzu Sushi & Sake Bar

Hands Down. Yuzu Sushi & Saki bar is one of my top picks for sushi in downtown Toronto. I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Yuzu a few months ago. Everything I ordered was made insanely fresh and well presented and the sashimi was UBER DELICIOUS!!. I absolutely love everything about this restaurant. Yuzu is very modern and comtemporary looking – opened by Chef Ken (owner of Sushi Couture, former owner of Japango). However, Yuzu is more on the pricey side but it is definitely money well spent.  I would definitely recommend this place for sushi lovers =]

Interior of the Restaurant:

Spicy Tuna Roll ($7)

  • absolutely loved this roll
  • the only thing I didn’t like was the cucumbers – usually salmon/ tuna rolls aren’t suppose to have cucumbers
Closer shot of the roll:

Sashimi Dinner – Chef’s Selection, 15 pieces of Sashimi ($25)

  • The sashimi was the most juiciest  and freshest sashimi I have EVER eaten – I literally felt like I was in heaven!!!!
  • Every piece was cut into the exact same thickness
  • My favourite piece was the sea beam <3
  • I’m craving for more again while blogging about it (lol)
Closer shot of the sashimi dinner:

Yuzu Maki (House Roll) – shrimp, tempura, spicy scallop, avocado, tobiko, seared at table ($18)

  • Whenever I go eat sushi, I always order the house roll – and this one did not disappoint AT ALL!
  • I couldn’t capture the flames that surrounded the roll =(
  • Seriously, one of the best house rolls I ever had
Closer shot:
Green Tea Creme Brulee ($
  • I love the presentation of this dish – very simple and elegant
  • Green tea was very prominent in the creme brulee but not overpowering
  • The custard was very smooth and tasty
I usually never eat the foods that are used to decorate the dish because they never look fresh. But I made an exception and finished all the fruits on the plate =]

Everything at Yuzu is just simply divine. Definitely looking forward to my next visit (if I can afford it) hahahaha =)
