Fuji Sushi Japanese Restaurant, Port Moody

FUJI SUSHI PORT MOODY

Fuji Sushi Japanese Restaurant moved from its old Austin Ave, Coquitlam location to Port Moody (beside McDonald’s and the Police Station). This location used to be a Hong Kong style café I used to frequent during high school and frankly nothing really has changed. Fuji kept most of the old décor, booth seats, and added a sushi bar and a tatami seated area.

I was told how great Fuji Sushi Japanese Restaurant was or how wonderful it was that they had REAL JAPANESE CHEFS. WOW what a disappointment. Perhaps someone can educate me what I am missing. Perhaps I am confused.

 

 

We wanted to order toro sashimi, but we were told there was not enough, maybe enough to make a nigiri piece or two. Already it was not promising on such a simple staple item.

Tuna and salmon sashimi 6.00 each: The tuna was a shade too dark for its own good and was rather icy. I would’ve thought it’d thawed out with all that tan. Salmon pieces were alright. Nothing spectacular.

Spicy Scallop Roll 4.00: decent pieces with a little bit of spice and tobiko. Some rice were falling apart.

Saba Nigiri 2.50 pp: Not the best saba I’ve encountered and the shiso leaf in between made it taste pretty weird. Perhaps an acquired taste.

Chawanmushi 4.25: By far one of the most disgusting steamed egg custard I’ve had. Everything about it was wrong. Raw carrot, green bean. No steamed mushroom. Flat tasting.

Gyoza 3.75: Regular pan friend pork gyoza.

Korokke 3.50: 3 tiny potato patties light breaded and deep fried.

BBQ Black Cod Neck (Gindara Kama BBQ) 8.75: The best tasting dish of the night. A simple salted grill robata.

 

So excuse me while I cannot comprehend the raving 4 star rating nor the excitement for a Japanese Chef. Restaurants like this are a dime a dozen. Your best bet around the Tri-Cities are still perhaps Shyun Sushi Bar, Matoi and Nagano. If you have found a GEM, kindly please give me a shout!
