Sushi California (Broadway)

I knew coming in that Sushi California wouldn’t be the greatest. It’s all about the quantity over quality here. It’s located beside Heritage Asian Eatery.


We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 6:15pm) and it was packed. Make sure your whole party is there otherwise they won’t seat you. Service is friendly and they came by multiple times to refill our tea.


The menu is huge; appetizer & salad, tempura, udon & donburi, a la carte, temaki, nigiri, maki, aburi special, combinations and party trays.



Tuna gomae ($5.95)
DSC00387Spinach salad with peanut, sesame paste and chunks of tuna. Sauce was bland and boring. Chunks of tuna did not have an enjoyable texture.

Cream curry udon ($8.95)
DSC00389This was actually better than expected. Mashed potato on top with a light curry broth. Noodles had a good bite.

Chopped roll ($4.75)
DSC00392Scallop and masago mixed with mayo. All their rolls were mediocre. Too much rice and it’s too soft.

Unagi roll ($5.50)
DSC00391Grilled eel and cucumber. Again, can’t get over how bad the rice is packed.

Negitoro roll ($3.75) and negihama roll ($3.75)
DSC00393Negitoro was bland. Skip it. Negihama was the better of the two. Hamachi tasted a bit fresher and green onion added some lightness.

Aburi pizza ($6.95)
DSC00395Salmon, tuna, deep fried rice and special sauce. This was the best out of all the rolls we ordered. Slightly torched with a tasty sauce. The deep fried rice was their attempt at mimicking a pizza crust; it worked.


No plans to come back anytime soon to Sushi California.
