Tokyo Joe’s is one of those local favourites. Everyone in the neighbourhood raves about them. Prior to this visit, we had bought take-outs from Tokyo Joe’s, and we were always amazed by their speedy service. We would order a 30 to 50 piece party tray, and the sushi would be rolled and packed within five minutes!
Today, we decided to dine in, and the service was once again very fast and friendly. Dining in also means free miso soup 🙂
Salmon & avocado salad – $9.95
Everything tasted fresh. Sashimi was fresh and chunky. On the side (and not pictured) was a sesame-based salad dressing. One salad alone can be quite filling as a summer lunch.
Negitoro roll ($3.50) and Teriyaki combo ‘B’ ($15.95)
The three pieces of nigiri were part of the teriyaki combo. All the sushi were quite good; not the absolute best, but definitely a tier above most run-of-the-mill sushi restaurants.
Beef teriyaki was very satisfying to eat. The sauce had just the right amount of sweetness and saltiness, and we were glad they sprinkled on some scallions and dried seaweed to lighten things up a bit. On the side there was more salad! This time it had a ranch dressing, but we would have preferred the lighter sesame dressing.
