Sushi K Kamizato NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

It’s been a very long time since we last visited Sushi K Kamizato. Even though we live mere minutes away, we’ve been going to eat at other places in the Tri-Cities. The menu has changed a lot since they first opened. It is more concise and focused on sashimi, Okonomi / nigiri pieces and fresh sheets directly from Japan. Cooked food is absent from the menu and don’t expect to see any bento boxes or California rolls options here.

Prices are relatively steep and an average dinner for dinner with drinks can run you $100. If you are looking for speciality items or daily specials, be sure to check their Facebook Page for updates. If you see something you fancy trying, I’d suggest asking for the price first. Some items like the Imonolith – marinated blue fin tuna cup, topped with snow crab leg and sweet shrimp mixed with my homemade avocado mayo sauce – is $11 per piece.

Chirashi Don 29.99: the sticker shock might have you second guessing whether to order this sashimi rice bowl or not; however, rest assure it is filled with a lot of goodies – not just your typical farm salmon, tuna and octopus bowls. There are a lot of quality items here.

Few of our nigiri pieces
Hotate: sweet scallops
Engawa: rich, creamy, fatty flounder fish flame torched aburi style
Saba: salty, briny mackerel flame torched

 

One thing is for certain, we probably will be coming back real soon. We’re already thinking about what to order next time! However, if you are pressed for time or expect to be somewhere in an hour, I’d suggest you visit Sushi K Kamizato another time. Their service is slow and the food takes time to come. There is only two people working there: the Chef and the server. Our last visit, it took over 50 minutes for our sushi pieces to arrive.

 

 

Has anyone tried their omakase? $40 seems very reasonable. The only caveat is that it requires one day advance notice.

4 Cherry Blossom Sakura Teas You Need To Drink Now!

4 Cherry Blossom Sakura Teas You Need To Drink Now!

5 Cherry Blossom Sakura Teas You Need To Drink Now NOMSS.com Food Blog

Every spring a dusty array of Millennial Pink coats the city with cherry blossoms. While pictures of sakura probably is flooding your Instagram, the truth is the taste of cherry blossoms is even better than their smell. The flowers and leaves of the cherry tree contain a small amount of coumarin that provides a distinctive delicious roasted almond and sweet hay aroma. In Japan, to enjoy the flavour cherry blossoms all year, fresh cherry blossoms are preserved in salt (sakura  no shiozuke 桜の塩漬け), and then used to flavour rice, tea and sweets. Plum vinegar is added to the cherry blossom brine to accentuate the pink hue and fruity taste.

One of my favourite way to enjoy Sakura is in tea. Here are four Sakura-yu teas you should definitely try!

 

 

TWG Tea – Always Sakura Tea

Brilliantly blended with notes of wild Rainier cherry and rose blossoms, this marvellous green tea from the Haute Couture Tea Collection® yields an exceptionally fresh and fruity infusion with a subtle floral aftertaste. The delicate sweetness of wild cerise enveloped by lingering notes of romantic floral.

 

Also for the month of April, the Vancouver TWG Tea Salon & Boutique will also be featuring a special Sakura Tea Set priced at $48 pp featuring Japanese tea-infused savouries and patisseries paired with an extensive selection of exclusive tea blends perfect for spring.

 

 

TeaLeaves – Cherry Blossom Tea

Mildly grassy and cherry with notes of hay with a sweet cherry finish. It is high in antioxidants. This Cherry Blossom tea pays an homage to the hanami festivals of Japan and exquisite beauty of the blossoms, our Cherry Blossom Green showcases our artistry in blending through the harmonization of fresh, grassy Japanese Sencha with sweet, candied cherry. Featuring one of Japan’s most popular natural leaf teas, Sencha Fukujyu (“Green Spider Leg”) is known for its refreshing sweet and grassy taste.

 

 

TeaForte – Hanami Green Tea

This 2018 Silver Medal at the Global Tea Championship award winner offers a joyous pairing of tart cherries, flowers, and organic green tea. Named for the annual Japanese cherry blossom festival, each cup invites tea lovers around the world to breathe in and appreciate the fleeting beauty of spring flowers in bloom. USDA Organic with flavour notes of cherry with a lightly floral & fruity aroma.

Kyoto Obubu Tea Farms – Sakura Tea

Light and smooth, this Sakura Tea is mildly salty with a floral aftertaste and plum undertones. A transparent pink expands in the cup revealing a flowery aroma with hints of the sea.

ALEPH MIDDLE EASTERN VANCOUVER NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Aleph Eatery is a Middle Eastern restaurant that recently just opened in Vancouver at 1889 Powell Street. The space although tight is bright, airy and cozy – decor cross sectioned between Kinfolk and Cereal Magazine. Pastel pallets faded and banquette seating frames the restaurant with floating tables to maximize space. I am in love. Plus it is baby friendly – the owners welcomed baby (and stroller) without giving us a side-eye.
