Victoria Sushi – Hidden Gem in New West
Victoria Sushi is a wonderful hidden gem located on Royal Avenue East in New West (just east of McBride). I don’t call it a hole-in-the-wall because the interior is actually pretty nice with comfortable seating, dark wooden tables and red-padded chairs. On my visit in February, the flat screen on the wall was locked onto the Olympics.
I started out my mid-week lunch with the Appetizer Sashimi ($6.95). The sashimi was clean and fresh and included tuna, surf clam, two types of salmon, a white fish, and something that looked like hamachi. There’s nothing more enjoyable than a beautifully prepared assortment of sashimi… so simple but tasty. And the piping hot miso soup went down smoothly.
I also ordered the Oyako Don ($7.95) and Chicken Karaage ($4.95). The donburi was exactly what I was looking for… the rice was coated with a tasty sauce and the mushrooms, onions, egg, and chicken were the perfect topping.
The chicken wings were juicy inside with a thin, crispy outer coating.
I’m a bit surprised that this place wasn’t busier but I guess it’s slightly off the beaten path.
