The Crunchy Go-Go Roll at Sushi Bella in Burnaby.

Located along Kingsway, east of Metrotown near Royal Oak Avenue, Sushi Bella has a funky decor inside and some creative and delicious tasting sushi. While new to the Burnaby area in mid-2015, the restaurant has several other locations located throughout the Metro Vancouver region and, therefore, is no newcomer to the sushi scene.

Dragon Roll at Izumi Sushi in Metrotown

Izumi Sushi is located in the food court at Metrotown Mall and was great for a quick japanese food fix while taking a break from Christmas shopping. We were expecting a fairly standard menu of items, which they have, but to our surprise, they also had several specialty rolls and some kitchen items as well.

Dragon Roll at Black Dragon

With a big, red “grand opening” sign on the front, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to eat at Black Dragon Sushi on Kingsway. The restaurant is located 1-block east of Metrotown on the other side of Kingsway from the London Drugs and is one of about half-a-dozen sushi restaurants within a few minutes radius of each other. With the stiff nearby competition, Black Dragon Sushi tries to separate themselves with their selection of specialty sushi rolls.

Flying Dragon Roll at Tomoya Sushi

Located near Metrotown along Nelson Avenue, Tomoya Japanese Restaurant has a large selection of sushi and specialty items from the kitchen. The food is fairly good, definitely above your average sushi restaurant and each item on the menu is accompanied by a photograph to help you visualize what you’re going to eat. The photos, however, make it more difficult to choose what to order!

Yakko Sushi Japanese Restaurant

Tower Sashimi

If you don’t take transit around Metrotown, chances are you have not seen Yakko Sushi, a small restaurant hidden in the corridor between the bus loop and Station Square. We had the company of Tiny Bites and family on this evening, which was a sushi reunion of sorts as I had last eaten at Yakko when Tiny Bites took me there 12 years ago. This restaurant has been open for quite a few years and judging by consistent traffic that kept coming in to eat or pickup takeout, they are quite popular.

The Forest Roll

Driving by this restaurant along Kingsway has always been intriguing as it looks like someones house. Now that we had the chance to go, it can be confirmed that walking through the “yard” feels like you are arriving at a friend’s house party. Even more deceiving, you feel like there is nobody here and you have arrived at the party too early, that is until you walk up the stairs, through the front door, and realize the restaurant is busy, alive, and happening.
