Y Sushi: Unremarkable Japanese on Edmonds
Ok, so I’ve held off on visiting Y Sushi for a very long time. Why? Well, I’ve heard many mixed reviews of the place and, to be honest, life is too short for bad sushi.
Still, I found myself looking for some new sushi spot around the Edmonds area I figured that I might as well try Y Sushi out for myself to see how they stacked up. I visited in late February and found that the interior was quite cold (even though I was sitting next to a space heater).
I started out with the BBQ Salmon Kama and Head ($4.50) as I usually find this is a good indicator of how the rest of the meal will turn out. Usually when I order kama, you just get the fish collar – so I was a bit intrigued that they serve this with the head. Honestly not sure if they serve it this way because they’re too lazy to separate the head from the collar but it didn’t turn out too bad. There were plenty of meaty bits (along with an eyeball – which I didn’t eat) but I can see why it’s not ordered more often. I think I do prefer just the kama by itself.
I also ordered the Oshi Aburi Sushi Salmon ($12.95). I found this to be a very creamy dish (particularly from the avocado in the middle) but thought that they used a bit too much rice and the flavour of the sauce seemed a bit off.
Overall, the service seemed kind of slow considering how quiet it was. I’ve definitely had better (and worse) sushi items elsewhere and probably wouldn’t go out of my way to revisit.
