So, I was at my other job and we were called in on a Saturday with lunch paid and what did the group decide to do with their $13 meal allowance? They got us to go for AYCE sushi at Richmond Sushi. I haven't stepped into this place for more than 6 years. The parking is crap here, maybe that's why I don't come here often.
It was a Saturday afternoon and the place wasn't very full. I was surprised because I remember this place used to get pretty packed.
Haha, it's been so long, I don't remember what this was...I think it might have been some some sort of....no, nevermind, I'm not going to guesss.
The gyoza presentation wasn't as bad as Aji Taro, and I do remeber these not tasting too bad.
Of course, there's always someone who can't handle the raw fish so we got them some California Rolls...as you can tell, the rice to filler ratio isn't all that bad.
The ebi sunomono was pathetic. It was by far the worst sunomono I have ever had. The one single shrimp sat on a bed of crunchy, yes, crunchy noodles. These were not al dente, they were raw. Unbievable, even worse than Aji Taro. Mazui desu.
I dunno what's going on with AYCE sushi nowadays, but I find they always have to drown the deep fried stuff in the Thai chili sauce...you know, that sweet and spicy sauce? Yuck. Anyway, the ika karaage came with that stuff on it and I didn't like it.
Shrimp bombs! With more Thai Chili sauce. This was a hit with some of the non-raw-fish eaters.
Teriyaki beef was dried out, but rehydrated with sauce.
Assorted carrot tempura. Actually the nasu (eggplant) wasn't too bad and kind of a surprise to find in this place.
The obligatory salmon, tuna and saba nigiri sushi, ordered en masse until we were sick of them.
I had to do it, I had to order the kaki motoyaki in the egg tart trays. First, because I like oysters, and second, because I love egg tarts. Haha, but after a few of these, I felt not so hot.
All in all, Richmond Sushi was more or less the way I remember. I didn't go by choice, but it was more of a social thing so I went along with the group. Would I go back again? Not willingly.
