Take Sushi – Grilled Salmon Belly
We’re big fans of Take Sushi, located on Hastings Street in North Burnaby. I don’t think we’ve ever had anything bad here before.
One of their more popular dishes is the Tuna and Mango Salad mixed with avocado and cucumber. The avocado was perfectly ripe and the sauce really brings out the flavours of the fresh tuna and mango chunks. I actually prefer how they used to serve this on a glass plate instead of a white oval bowl.
We ordered some nigiri to go with our meal: Tamago, Unagi, Toro, and Chopped Scallop… again, all well-prepared.
The Spicy Agedashi Tofu are rather large with a crisp outer layer protecting the tofu on the inside. All of it is covered with their dreamy hot sauce which is more tangy than it is pungently hot.
We were already pretty full before the Nabenyaki Udon arrived but we just had to finish off the silky smooth udon noodles.
And, of course, one of my favourites is the Grilled Salmon Belly. I know it might seem excessively fatty and oily but I figure I spend enough on fish oil pills that I might as well enjoy the salmon belly.
