Victoria Sushi – A Great Miku Alternative
Victoria Sushi is very similar to Kishimoto, and Miku where they offer Aburi Salmon Oshi or otherwise called “flame torched salmon pressed sushi”.
The Kimchi Pork Ishiyaki ($10.50) is from their “Izakaya” section of the menu. It consists of kimchi, pork, onions, egg, and seaweed in a sizzling stone bowl.
After you give it a good mix, it becomes an incredible fried rice that gets a bit crispy on the edges due to the stone bowl. Yum!
Both Meta Knight and I thought the Assorted Sashimi ($16) was a little pricey for 10 pieces of sashimi.
Nevertheless, you can’t ignore the quality of the sashimi. It’s the real deal and you can tell that nothing was pre-frozen.
The famous Salmon Oshi Sushi ($9). Unlike the Miku ones, it doesn’t have a layer of salmon layered in between the rice. It was a solid salmon oshi dish though certainly missing the intense smokey flavour that usually penetrates right through even the rice.
All in all, a very solid Miku alternative!! This location is easier to get to than downtown Vancouver and their salmon aburi sushi is almost half the price of the ones at Miku. Who can complain with that?
