Security Cameras

What's with the security cameras? Soooo creepy being watched while I eat. Am I going to steal chopsticks? That little bowl that the wasabi and soy sauce goes in? Are we in 1984?

And since I need 300 characters to publish this review, why is it more expensive to order the avocado yam tempura dragon roll than it is to order a yam tempura roll and an avocado roll? You could just put a piece of each in your mouth!

It's just been half an hour since I've entered their Metrotown location and I just got my bubble tea... no sign of the crepe. Oh, here it is... five minutes later. I recommend ordering "to go" from the counter and sitting down to eat it. They obviously can't manage two customer flows efficiently. Maybe call ahead to order?

First the menu: Lots of variety inspired me to visit after picking up a copy of their takeout menu. Unfortunately, vegetarian choices are not highlighted, the "vege combo" isn't explained and the lunch specials include NO vegetarian choice.

Secondly the decor: Staff were friendly, tasty tea was refilled promptly. The frosted glass front door could have given me a clue that it was the entrance!

Finally and most importantly, the food: I ordered vege roll, inari roll, tamago roll and a tamago nigiri. The vege roll consisted of an under-ripe slice of avocado, lots of shredded radish and some cucumber - boring and bland! Tamago was nice and fresh, could have been a larger piece a la Sushi Aoki. The sushi rice was SO BLAND - it didn't help that it was cold, which I don't think is the optimum serving temperature but it probably could have used more flavouring. What kind of sushi place keeps its rice in the fridge?

So, OO Sake staff if you're reading this: You're really nice people, but look over your menu and offer some intelligent vegetarian options. Visit Sushi Aoki for some inspiration (and advice maybe) Try Zipang Sushi's miso crunch roll - THAT's an inspired vegetarian roll. And visit Sushi Yama and Nikkyu Sushi and check out their Vegetarian Bento Boxes - offer something like that and you might see me for lunch again.
