Sansei Seafood (Seattle): Happy Hour

Sansei Seafood (and their sister restaurant DK Steakhouse) have been two of our favourite restaurants whenever we head over to Waikiki. As a matter of fact, we had just posted about our happy hour adventure at Sansei Seafood in Waikiki just recently. So when we heard that there was a Sansei in Seattle (just a hop, skip and a jump away from Vancouver), we knew that we wanted to try them out the next time we were in the area.

Prices at Sansei can be a bit expensive for some of the dishes but the quality shines through. Still, if you’re looking to try them out, happy hour is the best time to visit (their happy hour offering is actually better than the one in Waikiki).

Kimchi Pork Belly Brussels Sprouts ($5) had a generous amount of chopped up pork belly along with a slightly tart and spicy kick.

The Mango Crab Salad Roll ($7) is one of the appies that we always order when we’re in Waikiki. How can you go wrong with ripe mango, blue crab, fresh greens & crunchy peanuts? Actually, I felt that this version was slightly different than the one I’m used to from their Waikiki location.

Next up, was the Crispy Fried Calamari ($6) with a spicy Japanese cocktail sauce.

One of the really great dishes here is the Shrimp Dynamite ($7) with large, crispy tempura shrimp tossed with a garlic masago aioli and unagi glaze drizzle on top of a crispy fried wonton wrapper.

The California Roll ($5) is a fairly basic roll made up of crab, cucumber, and avocado.

The Poke Bowl ($7) is garnished with sweet onions, wakame and kaiware sprouts (sprouted daikon radish seeds) in a spicy poke sauce.

As expected, the Salmon Sashimi $13) was ever so buttery.

The Spider Roll ($8) has crispy tempura soft shell crab, cucumber, and kaiware sprouts on the inside of the roll and served with a sweet Thai chili sauce and unagi glaze.

Last up was the Grilled Miso Eggplant ($5) with a slightly crisp exterior and basted in a very good miso-yaki sauce.

Suffice it to say, our visit to Sansei Seattle was epic and the only thing better than the quality of the food was that the happy hour prices are very reasonable.
