Sometimes I can be an asshole to eat with. I can be that guy at the dinner table who says the food sucks after someone boasted about the restaurant. Usually I keep my filter on but sometimes the Asahi takes my filter off.
This day a friend wanted to show me a cheap sushi spot on the drive and I was like come on its going to be fishy and wack. She was persistent and we took a trip to Sake Maki.
The interior was creative. It must have previously been a Greek restaurant because the walls had resemblance of the Parthenon on it. The Japanese owners were creative and added some cherry blossoms and a painting of Mt Fuji to disguise the previous Greek environment and make it more Japanese.
The food. I was surprised, the sashimi was really fresh, it wasn't fishy, and the rolls were tasty. I even did something unusual for me and ordered a plate of teriyaki at the end to fill me up. Such a rookie thing to do in a Japanese restaurant but seeing someone order that sizzling plate just made me want to have one. For all you Commercial Drive inhabitants you have something good here in Sake Maki.
A recommended cheap Japanese sushi spot.
