Review of Sushi on Bloor

Sushi on Bloor is the spot for some delicious and fresh sushi. Confusing name, (I know, I was perplexed myself initially) but that is the name of the restaurant and conveniently, its location. Sushi on Bloor is situated right in the heart of the city near the intersection of Bloor and Bathurst.

So within the last 6 months, I have recently opened up my food palette to now loving sushi. To me, it is an acquired taste. To others, it is the most scrumptious type of food out there. Some of you who know who I am would probably say that I am crazy since part of my heritage comes from the land of sushi (Japan). My friends all started jumping up and down because there is now one more cuisine that can be added to our fairly short list of places Meg will eat at. A couple of weeks ago I was home in Toronto and was meeting up with a group of my friends. Stephen (he writes a mean blog) and Marcus (the “in the know” fashion guy) and others  Right away, they requested that we go out for sushi, and specifically Sushi on Bloor. Being the organizer and planner that I am, I called about 2 weeks in advance and made reservations for a Friday night. We were all very happy and lucky to have them, because the restaurant started to fill up quickly with the line going out the door at about 7pm.

People of all kinds were eating in this casual restaurant. This is a good thing! Awards and articles about the restaurant lined the walls recognizing their food excellence and accomplishments. The restaurant itself isn’t enormous, and is fairly long and narrow. Our group was quite happy with the booth set up that we were given. All of the food is made fresh and made to order. No heat lamps or other such devices here; just pure freshness. The menu is pretty much a la carte. Everything is inexpensively priced. Order what you want and how much you want!

JD impressed us all ordering about 6 dishes all to himself, and ate it all without leaving any leftovers. I had my favourite type of sushi which is salmon and avocado. I polished my dish off in a heartbeat. I also ordered chicken tempura. It was  delicious as well. Everyone loved their meals. For some of my friends, this was our first time eating there, and for others it was their umpteenth time returning. It is safe to say we would all definitely go back. It is hard to find a great sushi restaurant, but this one makes the list!
