Health food makes me sick.
~ Calvin Trillian (1935 – )
Today is our anniversary as new Canadians. Coincidentally, this week is also the week we landed in Canada. We decided to celebrate these two special occasions by eating out somewhere more than our regular budget — as we always do every year. I wanted to try out this new Malaysian restaurant (called Cafe D’light) along West Broadway which was featured in the local papers but Arkensen and Nanzaro both wanted sushi, all-you-can-eat sushi! We had all-you-can-eat sushi last year in Sui Sha Ya but we decided this year to go to Richmond Sushi in Union Square along Capstan Way. We have been to Richmond Sushi once before — it was decent and not too expensive. There are a lot of nice restaurants in Union Square.
Well, this place has both ala-carte and all-you-can-eat. We opted for all-you-can-eat. We asked for a pick list and left the first round selection to Suanne. Of course, both Arkensen and Nanzaro wanted to weigh in on what is chosen.
Arkensen asked for a total of 12 salmon sushi! Arkensen loves raw salmon and can eat just that and nothing else. The all-you-can-eat menu does not have sashimi for lunch and so the next best thing for Arkensen is the salmon sushi. Here he is picking off the salmon pieces first:
Nanzaro will eat just about anything except for green peas. Nanzaro started off with his beef udon. His favourite was the spicy tuna rolls. He had quite a lot of that.
Here are some of the pictures of the other selections we made. I wish I could have taken more pictures. The first picture of the teriyaki salmon below is surprisingly good. Other items we selected were miso soup, motoyaki (Suanne’s favourite!), fried smelt, fried rice, yaki soba, grilled salmon head, gyoza and some tofu.
As always, we ended up stuffing ourselves too full. Arkensen was the first one to give up and to our surprise, Nanzaro was the sole survivor! We had quite a bit left over. Suanne left this eye from her grilled salmon head. Here it is looking at you …
Overall damage was $53 (that is inclusive of taxes and tips). We had a walk around the block after the heavy meal. We went also to the Chinese market next door and bought some globe grapes (Ben’s favourite). Here are our ratings … from a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the best):
