|Masamune Japanese Restaurant
5200 Dixie Road
After enjoying Jimbay’s so much, I thought I had found the best sushi in the Toronto airport/ Mississauga area — I was wrong. Only a block away from Jimbay’s I found a place that did it one better — Masamune. Masamune is a deceptively large Japanese restaurant in a strip mall that fronts onto Dixie Road. Parking at lunch is hard to come by but be patient, it is worth the wait.
There were a variety of specials on the menu as well as items like uni and mirugai. I felt like something hot so I the Nabe Udon and the sashimi appetizer. The menu did not specify how much sashimi was in the appetizer so when it arrived I was surprised to find that it consisted of a combination of ten varied pieces of sashimi. The sashimi was arranged nicely and served with both pickled ginger and wasabi.
I can hardly say enough about Masamune, they had it all. The service
was attentive and quick. The selection was good. The fish was
unbelievably fresh. It was an excellent value and the Nabe Udon was the
perfect compliment to my sashimi.
