Bara Sushi: Forgettable Sushi

I’m a little backlogged with writing my blog posts so when I came across this entry, I had to think hard about what I remembered about this restaurant. Bara Sushi is a newish Japanese restaurant located on Sixth Street in New Westminster.

Upon entering the restaurant, I thought that it seemed vaguely familiar… as it turns out, it used to be one of the locations of Okonomi Sushi (a restaurant known for their pink sushi rice). The decor has changed somewhat… a bit cleaner than before.

I decided to order a bunch of nigiri for my lunch. The Wild Salmon ($1.65 each) was okay – it was clean but not very buttery. Similarly, the Toro ($1.60) lacked the buttery texture that I’m used to for tuna belly. The Chopped Scallop ($2.35) I probably would have preferred if it had a creamy sauce added to it. I did quite enjoy the sweet, popping texture of the Ikura ($2.35). Meanwhile, the Amaebi ($3.05) seemed to be a bit on the smaller side for a spot prawn. Probably the best of the bunch was the Unagi ($2.35) as the eel was tender and buttery as I bit into the flesh.

Overall, the nigiri here was not bad but not great either. I’d probably say it’s on par with most mid-range sushi restaurants.

I noticed that they have call buttons at the table (similar to what you see at most Korean restaurants).
