Ajisai, is tucked away in Kerrisdale and serves amazing fish, it is my favorite sashimi spot in the city. It is a small spot, so there are times where you may have to wait in line but it is worth it, trust me.
We ordered the Tuna sashimi (11 dollars for 8 pieces) wich tasted absolutely fantastic, amazing texture and taste. For sushi, we ordered the real crab meat california roll (6.50), the house roll which had crab meat, lettuce, avocado, and tuna in it and we had a small natto roll (1.50)as well to try something new.
My Caucasian friend (shown above) has issues with eating sushi with seaweed on the outside so we were limited to inside out rolls. He wanted to try natto and once he put it in his mouth, he cringed and made funny faces as he forced down the food. He did really enjoy the other rolls.
For those of you who don't know Natto is a traditional Japanese food that is made from fermented soybeans. It stinks but is very good for you. My new partner O-Toro on this blog loves it.
Ajisai is a little more expensive then your regular sushi spot but the flavours are insane, well worth it.
