Bluefin Sushi: Average Eats
Bluefin Sushi is located in the Sapperton area of New Westminster, directly across from Royal Columbian Hospital.
The interior of this place is rather dark but I got seated at a table with some bright lights above it. I started out my lunch with an order of some nigiri sushi.
The Chopped Scallop ($1.50) looked a bit different than I’m used to due to the colour. Meanwhile, the Ikura ($1.95) was creamy with a pleasant popping texture. I was a bit disappointed that the Tako ($1.95) was a bit squishy in texture (almost like it was a bit too wet).
The Unagi ($1.50) was enjoyable as it was buttery in texture… almost as buttery as the Toro ($1.75). The only negative to the toro was that the fish was so delicate that it was almost falling apart. Lastly, the Salmon nigiri ($1.50) was also pretty good as it had a nice, clean finish.
Overall, the nigiri was pretty good but I thought that some of the seafood was a bit too “wet”.
During my visit, I also ordered a dish of Chicken Karaage ($5.95) which turned out to be deep-fried chicken wings. While the chicken wings had a light, tempura-like coating, the meat was a bit dry and I honestly prefer boneless karaage.
I really wish that restaurants would say if their karaage was boneless or just regular chicken wings.
I’d say that some dishes are hit-and-miss here with most items being pretty good. You might want to try out nearby Ikoi Sushi.
