Was talking with a friend today about Yuzu (236 Adelaide Street West, Toronto). I eat there a lot. So much so that I have earned a dedicated pair of chopsticks there and their mobile site is my handiwork. But we agreed: fresh fish, great service, and a comfortable space. Certainly, this isn’t the cheapest sushi in town, but both of us felt that it was definitely good value. Note: this is not a place for sushi purists.
Above, the distinct and fresh flavours of oyster and uni played well off each other in a creamy/briny mix. Balancing this out was a citrusy slice of yuzu jelly and the green/fresh taste of shiso. The small touch of tobiko gave it some extra salt and a bit of crunch. Quite lovely.

What kind of chopsticks are they? :)
I can’t believe that it has been 2 years since I’ve been back there…must go back! They have to be my favorite downtown sushi even though alot of people prefer Omi. I’ve tried them but I still like Yuzu more. It’s not just the food but the plating is excellent. The only low point was when a friend ordered the sake cheesecake and I couldn’t taste any hints of sake. Great to hear that they are still keeping up with their standards.
