|Sagano — Delta Hotel Toronto East
2035 Kennedy Rd
I do not normally stay in Delta hotels and this week in Toronto I was in a Marriott. Unfortunately with the traffic it took me too long to get to my client’s site so I switched to the Delta. Sagano is a large Japanese restaurant located on the top floor of the hotel.
When I went to Sagano, it was full of Japanese people — always a good sign. Sagano has a complete menu and full bar. I sat at a table by the windows with a view towards downtown. The menu had some good looking appetizers. I ordered breaded Shittake mushrooms stuffed with shrimp. Breaded, these looked like gyoza and were served with a soy/ginger mix. I also ordered a tomato, cucumber and avocado salad. Both were very good.
The sashimi I had was excellent. It consisted of squid, tuna, white tuna, salmon, crab, octopus and surf clam. The fish was all good quality except for the salmon which was not quite up to par with the rest. The octopus was perfect not too gummy and quite tasty. I also thought the surf clam was especially good, not to gummy an excellent taste.
The presentation was what you would expect form an expensive restaurant but not exceptional. Like any other hotel restaurant, Sagano was pricey. I did miss the intimacy of smaller sushi places. And the menu did not have any exotic items or daily specials.
I enjoyed Sagano and if I stay in the Delta again I’ll be sure to eat here.
