TOKYO THYME Sushi Vancouver located in Kerrisdale is hidden gem. Their sushi is phenomenal. Their presentation is exquisite. Inside, the decor suggests nothing like a high end quality sushi restaurant: dated orange koolaid walls, swivel chairs and mis-matched artwork.
House Special Sunomono 6.25 h / 11.50 f : Not your average bowl of watery thinly-sliced marinated cucumbers and vinegar. This dish is like a beautiful piece of artwork. I could stare at this all day long. Thinly sliced marinated cucumbers wraps around amaebi shrimp. crab, smoked salmon, yamaimo and avocado. Sprinkle with some sesame. Dashed with some vinegar. Refreshing! Can be the only word to describe this dish. Half or Full orders available.
Red and White Tuna Stack 14.50 + .50 quail egg: Tower of red and white tuna as the name suggests. Diced and mixed with yamaimo and avocado. Served with sushi rice and seaweed. Concept is similar to Salmon with 7 Friends at Guu Otokomae where you would break apart the tower, stir, mix and served. The crunchy yam balances the soft tuna and adds a bit of texture. Just tangy enough with their house special sauce.
Daily Fresh Sashimi – Red Tuna, Toro: Perfectly sliced pieces of a bouncy, dense tuna vs a melt in your mouth, creamy toro tuna belly.
DX Negitoro 4.75: Albacore tuna, green onions, kaiware and mint. Daikon radish sprouts gives the roll an added fresh flavour and the shredded mint leaves is refreshing. Center packed with fresh tuna paste.
Fresh Saba Nigiri: Fresh, Savory, Fishy goodness.
Daily Sashimi Special – Uni Nigiri: Although I can’t say it is as fresh as the uni we had in Taiwan at Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產 it is nonetheless very creamy. Color-wise I think it still needs to be a little more golden (than deep orange) to be called fresh.
Nasudengaku 5.50: Baked eggplant glazed in special miso paste with a hint of orange zest. A nice touch of acidity to break apart the creamy richness.
Green Tea Icecream Mochi: served with black berry, goose berry and Azuki caramel. The red bean like azuki sauce is a nice pairing to the icy cold match ice-cream. This is the only dessert available. Nothing too fancy and probably can be store bought.
TOKYO THYME Sushi Vancouver was a delightful experience and we will most likely will be back for some of their creative and seasonal rolls. The price point is economical while serving quality sushi.
