|Super Sushi House
1891 Kennedy Rd
I have learned that you cannot judge a book by its cover. Toronto is a great sushi town. I am staying this week in the Delta Hotel Toronto East, On Monday night I ate at the Hotel Sushi place Sagano. Sagano is a decent sushi bar but one can do better.
I had driven by Super Sushi House several times during the week and it did not look promising. The restaurant is next to Mr. Sub and the Wild Moose. The first time I drove by I did a double-take. The blue sign advertising sushi is located on top of the Wild Moose sign. I know I am in Canada but moose sushi is to much even for me.
Tonight after swimming laps I decided to go out for sushi but it was already 9:15pm. I was concerned that I might not find a sushi place open late. I decided to drive by and the sign at Super Sushi House said they were open to 11:00pm.
Super Sushi House looks like a fast for restaurant with Japanese decorations scattered about. When I walked in I was the only customer. Over time others filtered in and all seemed to be regulars.
Perhaps the most notable thing about Super Sushi House is the prices! A 15 piece sashimi combo was only $10 Canadian. Many nigiri were only 99 cents and they had an all day $13.95 special. With prices this low, I prepared myself to be disappointed. I could not have been more wrong.
I started with an avocado salad with crab meat, cabbage and mayonnaise. The salad usually comes with tobiko (flying fish roe) but I ordered mine without. The salad was awesome, I am a sucker for avocado and this was perfect.
I ordered the $10 sashimi combo and waited anxiously to see what they could possibly put together at that price. Needless to say, I was surprised. For $10 I got tuna, red snapper, white tuna, octopus, surf clam and salmon. The pieces were large and fresh. The white tuna was especially good. The presentation was not spectacular but I really could find no fault with my meal.
A little nicer decor and perhaps some daily specials and Super Sushi House could get have earned 5 rice bowls!
