We were looking for a lighter dinner and stumbled upon Ume Foods. This is a homey Japanese spot that does a variety of things. It’s next door to K-Town Pizzeria.
We dropped in on a Friday evening (around 7:30pm). There’s four booth tables inside. Service was friendly and always a good sign when the staff is Japanese.
The menu consists of appetizers, sushi (maki, special rolls, sashimi, nigiri), donburi, tempura and bento boxes.
Prices are very reasonable with most items in the $7.75 to $13.25 price range.
Liked that it came with a small portion of salad.
The katsu was serviceable; good breading but the pork was a touch dry.
Curry sauce was solid but it soaks up all the rice. Wanted more to dip with the katsu.
Toro was better than we expected.
Scallop was a good piece.
Liked how the tamago was slightly torched.
One of the better Japanese spots we’ve found in Kelowna. Super reasonable prices too.
