Sushi Uomo Japanese Restaurant

It’s been too long since we’ve had sushi so we decided to try out Sushi Uomo Japanese Restaurant while we were in the neighbourhood. They’re close to Anton’s Pasta Bar and Tentatsu Japanese Restaurant.

We’ve been for two visits; both times for a late lunch.

The inside is cute with about 8 tables and pictures of their dishes hanging up on the walls everywhere.

Service was friendly and tea is offered. As others have said, they close for a food break (between 3:30pm to 4:30pm).

The menu is massive but condensed onto two pages.

Trip #1
Miso soup
DSC03197Complimentary. Nice

Negi toro maki ($3.75)
DSC03201Chopped toro with green onion. This was excellent; fresh, good bite and rice was nicely packed.

Chopped scallop roll ($4.95)
DSC03202Chopped scallop, massago and mayo. Okay but way too much rice.

Tsubugai ($7.50)
DSC03216Shelk shell fish. Never heard of tsubugai so we were intrigued. The texture was interesting; very chewy and bouncy. This is more along the lines of an appetizer. Not sure why they smothered it in spicy sauce. If you order it, ask for it without the sauce.

Sushi & sashimi combo ($33.50)
DSC032139 pieces of sashimi, 6 pieces of salmon roll and 10 pieces of nigiri (chef’s selection).

Good portion and decent quality. For sashimi, we were given salmon, wild salmon, tuna, hamachi and sweet ebi. Hamachi was the winner of the sashimi but the salmon pieces were huge (same for the salmon maki pieces – stuffed).

DSC03209

As for the nigiri, we were given two pieces each of salmon, tuna, hokkigai, ebi and aburi tuna (?).

Not 100% sure as but it was some kind of white fish. Again, good portion on the salmon nigiri.

Trip #2

Toro sashimi ($12.50 for 5)
UntitledDecent. Toro slices were a touch on the icy side so let them thaw out a bit before biting in.

Negi toro maki ($3.75) and chopped scallop roll ($4.95)
UntitledMakis were similar to our first visit. Negi toro was my favourite of the two.

Generous portions at SUJR. Will have to try a few more things next time.
