After a rather large brunch I was not very hungry but as I awoke from the car ride home from Banff I found myself waking up to the front of this contemporary sushi venue on Broadway in Calgary (wow wordy but oh well). They had specials listed on a whiteboard at the front and the hostess was quite pleasant. There is fresh ginger on the table to cleanse the palate. Seeing as I do not have much penchant for ginger I did not much appreciate it but my company said it was quite good. We only ordered 3 rolls for the four of us and these included (from left to right) the Ocean Roll, Towa Special Roll, and Spicy Salmon Roll.
The Ocean special roll was delicious; scallop shrimp avocado and cucumber topped with mayo and a spicy sauce (not quite Sriracha but similar?). The spicy salmon roll had an extra kick to it which is what I want when I order spicy. The salmon portion was generous to say the least wtih salmon overflowing from the end pieces (in my experience the end pieces of sushi wind up being mal-portioned and altogether sloppy). So far so good. Next up the Towa special: Salmon, white tuna, red tuna, white tuna, salmon with cucumber and salmon and tuna filling and topped with a single piece of alfalfa which I thought was a nice touch. Unfortunately the Towa special roll did not taste as good as it looked and was pretty average.
Each roll costs around $14-20 so this place isn't exactly cheap. Overall it was pretty good and I left satisfied. Verdict: 81/100
