Green Leaf Sushi: Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi

Green Leaf Sushi has been on my must visit list for quite some time after seeing countless pics of their aburi oshi sushi. We finally found ourselves in the area after first hitting the UBC Botanical Garden Tree Walk and came for a late lunch. While the restaurant was still fairly busy, we did manage to find a table right away.

After seeing the Rose and Lilly Roll ($14) on another table, we figured we had to try it out. It comes with tuna, wild salmon, and crab meat in a cucumber wrapper. The tuna and salmon is shaped into a flower and the cucumber wrapper provides a crunchy contrast to the buttery soft sashimi.

We couldn’t come here without trying their signature Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi ($12). This is a pressed sushi with sockeye salmon that’s been flame-seared and topped with oshi sauce and a slice of jalepeño. This is a pretty good version with a light heat from the jalepeño offsetting the creaminess of the oshi sauce.

We also ordered a Jelly Fish Salad ($9.50) with sesame ponzu sauce and topped with a crunchy lotus root chip.

Last up for our lunch was their Beef Tenderloin Tataki ($14) with seared beef, yuzu ponzu sauce and topped with crispy garlic chips. The beef was quite tender and drizzled with a creamy garlic mayo sauce.

Overall, fairly tasty treats with attention to presentation skills in a busy spot.
