Mac n’ Cheese: Comes in two different flavors (regular and spicy with Capicollo). The mac n’ cheese is very cheesy and smooth. I particularly enjoyed the subtle heat of the spicy mac n’ cheese with capicollo. This was one of my favorite items on the menu.

Hot Philly Sandwich: Rib steak with bell peppers, onions, jalapeno, garlic aioli, spicy mayo and provolone cheese. I like the rich, hearty flavors of the beef steak with the kick of jalapeno.

Breaky Sandwiches 4.50: Ham and Cheese on an English muffin much like McDonald’s but slightly less greasy.

Clubbin’ Sandwich: BTL sandwich with bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheddar, garlic aioli, and spicy mayo. It is a good simple sandwich if you are not looking for something fancy.

Banh Mi: Beef brisket, asian marinade, pickled carrots, cilantro, jalapeno and garlic aioli. I was not a fan of this sandwich since the beef brisket was too saucey and overly sweet. There is not enough pickled carrots to keep the sandwich light and fresh. Skip this and go to a real Vietnamese restaurant if you craving a real Banh Mi.

Pork with Mac: Tender pulled pork, sweet chili BBQ sauce topped with mac n’ cheese. This rich sandwich has a good mix of mac and pulled pork. If you are looking for comfort and a filling meal, this one’s a winner!

House of Tofu Soup Burnaby has the best Soondooboo 순두부 찌개 in town. I should perhaps say around town since they have two locations – Burnaby (North Road in “Korean Town”) and Richmond. Soondooboo is a hot and spicy Korean stew made with tofu, vegetables, mushrooms, onions, scallions and chili powder. It is a popular item in Korean restaurants and is truly comforting because of it is served piping hot with a raw egg and also side bowl of rice.

However, superior tofu soup is hard to come by in the Lower Mainland. Some restaurants make them either too watery or cheap out on the ingredients. The worst is when the bowl arrives luke warm and is not even boiling. This is crucial because a lot of the flavours comes from the tiny shrimps and veggies.

House of Tofu Soup offers a few choices of seafood, pork, beef, chicken, kimchi, dumpling or mushroom. You can select the level of fire of hot, regular, mild or white (non-spicy).

What is special about this place is that their serve the bowl of rice from a hot stone bowl – the heat from the stone bowl creates crispy rice along the side. The traditional way to conquer the rice is to add tea into the crispy rice to soften them up and then eat. Myself I like to scrape the crispy rice and dip into the left over spicy tofu soup – To each their own.

Common to all Korean restaurants, delicious side dishes are served: kimchi, marinated potatoes, bean sprouts, seaweed, radish, etc. etc. One of my favorite is their potatoe salad. It is slightly sweet and absolutely delicious!

The prices are extremely reasonable and you will find yourself satisfied with yummy goodness. Be warned that the North Road location is located in a very very tiny “mall” that only offers at most 5 parking stalls shared with the Korean hair salon next door.

NAO Sushi – Burnaby (South / Highgate Village)

NAO Sushi – Burnaby (South / Highgate Village)


NAO Sushi is located on Kingways , Burnaby by Highgate Village. It is across from the somewhat newly developments and Save-On Foods and Starbucks and beside Honda.

I often come here with friends when we want some quality sushi but our wallets are a bit tight.

Although the prices are reasonable and on par with Sushi Town Coquitlam, the quality is not completely compromised nor is the place filthy. Other similar Japanese joints would be Sushi California or Sushi Garden.

Food: 2.5

Ambiance: 2.5
Overall: 2.5

This place is busy at most times and closes early at 9 weekdays and 10pm weekends. We came here at 615pm and the streets were quickly filled up. Inside was packed within ½ dining.

Most items are pretty fresh and they offer lobster sashimi sets for $35 – comes on a boat with miso and sashimi.
Sorry no pix for this

They have some fusion rolls on top of traditional ones… I will only name some that are more unique or have improved or deteriorated.

Ichi Roll

King crab, tobiko, scallop, tamago, avocado. Wrapped with rice paper instead of seaweed.

Tamago

Decently sized. I quite like the large chilled sweet egg omelette. It had just the right amount of sweetness and density

Amaebi
This sweet shrimp nigiri used to be made with large shrimps. Instead now 2 small shrimps are used. Disappointed.

Hotate

Also downsized; but nonetheless, still pretty darn fresh.

Overall it was an enjoyable dinner as service was prompt and friendly. Nao is brightly light, clean and even has a few big flat screens for you to watch a hockey game or two while consuming some Asahi!
