I’ve walked by Sushi Ko several times, but whenever we’re in this area we’re usually going to Buzz BBQ next door. I was craving sushi one afternoon, so we finally made it past Buzz and over to get some sushi.
They have multiple lunch specials, including sushi specials where you are given quite a generous portion of sushi, as well as a bowl of miso soup. Honestly, we should have shared one sushi special, but as usual we over ordered.
I opted for the following:
The Terry Roll, which was essentially a California roll with spicy tuna, tempura crunchies on top, and covered in unagi sauce. I liked the sushi, although the spicy tuna could have been a bit spicier, and the sauce was a bit overly sweet.
The California crunch contained shrimp tempura, crab, and pickles, and unfortunately for me, was also covered in the overly sweet unagi sauce. Minus the sauce, the sushi was quite tasty, and I really liked the flavor contrast of the pickles.
Adam ordered the Eel Tempura Roll, which contained deep fried eel, avocado, cream cheese, and again, that unagi sauce; and the Red Corner, which was essentially a California roll with spicy tuna, covered in a tangy cream sauce. Both were good; although again the spicy tuna wasn’t very spicy. Even though I’m not a huge fan of tempura fried sushi, I think of these two I preferred the Eel Tempura Roll, minus (or with a bit less of) the unagi sauce.
Overall, a good experience. The restaurant is clean and about medium in size, and the service was friendly and efficient. The fish was fresh, and the sushi rolls were all pretty good. Half of the restaurant is set up for teppanyaki, which I’ll have to try some day…
