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.
Appetizer, soup & salad, tempura, breaded deep fry, noodle, donburi, entree, sushi donburi, sushi combo, roll combo, nigiri sushi, sashimi, maki and special boxes.
Shelk 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.
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).
As for the nigiri, we were given two pieces each of salmon, tuna, hokkigai, ebi and aburi tuna (?).
Sushi & sashimi combo ($33.50)
Not 100% sure as but it was some kind of white fish. Again, good portion on the salmon nigiri.
Generous portions at SUJR. Will have to try a few more things next time.
