After my experience with Wasabi Sushi, I never in a million years expexted to find any good sushi in Regina. But the problem was that I was getting some huge cravings for sushi and I broke down the next day and had lunch at Umi Sushi Express. Now my experience with Umi Sushi in Vancouver was a horrendous one, with cold, hard rice and small slivers of fish. I had no hopes, but I was desperate. To my surprise, the location in Regina (Cornwall Centre) had some half-decent sushi.
I orderd a spicy tuna roll, currently my favourite roll. The tuna actually tasted fresh.
I didn't have a good a good experience in Vancouver with Umi Sushi, but here in Regina, I was pleasantly surprised. Was it because my expecations were so low, or was I just desperate for sushi? I don't think it was either. I actually think the sushi here was pretty good. The rolls were freshly made and still carried the residual heat from the chefs. The prices were over the top considering what I got, but hey, I was in Regina and I was desperate. I ended up going there one more time for lunch during my stay in Regina.
If you want to see some wacked out prices, Regina Airport had a shop that was selling California Rolls for $8.00.....
