My classmates and I were starving after class/ student council photoshoot so we went to Sushi King on Granville Street to nom on giant sushi pieces. Sushi, to me, is one of the best hungry stuffers. It’s relatively healthy, creative, and there’s variety! Also, not over expensive. One the menu, it says they have the biggest sushi in town. Is that true? Read to find out!
It’s a relatively small place, but packed with people. I liked the little display of Japanese trinkets they had at the back.
We ordered 5 things, and the service was fast! This is the 9 piece sashimi dish. I don’t eat raw fish, but everyone else downed this quickly. Sorry, I missed taking note the price of this one!
Next came the Dragon Roll, $8.95 for 8 pieces. The sauce was delicious and the sushi was quite big! Needed 2-3 bites to finish one!
Next came the Spider Roll- $6.95 for 5 pieces. The sauce and mayonnaise went well with the sushi and I like how fancy the dish looked. When you’re hungry, everything that is yummy tastes even better.
Then came the Crazy Roll, $8 for 8 pieces. This is essentially fried California rolls, which were quite interesting. Plus, everything that is fried is pretty much tasty! Similar to the other rolls, the portions are quite big. I also like the shape of the California rolls, it’s not something I see everyday in typical sushi restaurants.
We also ordered a bowl of Seafood Ramen– which was $7.75. The soup was great to drink to null the intense sushi flavours. There were lots of salmon chunks in the ramen too, which I haven’t seen before in other seafood udon/ramen bowls. This bowl was huge. Definitely getting bang for your buck here.
Then we saw other tables with GIANT sushi rolls, and we couldn’t resist not having one ourselves- this is the House Roll. (I didn’t note the price, sorry!) We ordered 5 pieces, 1 for each person at our table. This was stuffed with giant chunks of sashimi (which I gave to my friend) and I ate the tamago and the crab meat. It was the “cherry on top” to end off our filling stomaches. The seaweed was a bit tough to break and chew, though.
The transition from dish to plate was terribly hard. The sushi also took up 90% of the plate. This is definitely one of the biggest pieces of Sushi I’ve seen in town of Vancouver yet.
Here’s somewhat of a size comparison between the sushi and my cup of tea.
After tax and tips, the total came to around $60! Needless to say, we were stuffed and satisfied. If you are looking for filling portions, interesting sushi pieces, and on a budget, I highly recommend Sushi King!
Thanks for joining in on Whitney’s food journey! 🙂
