Food Adventures: Shota Sushi

Me and my friends were having a great time shopping down Kerrisdale, we decided to drop by Shota Sushi for a quick dinner. We were planning to go to Ajisai Sushi close by, but one of my friends doesn't like seafood. So we went to a typical Japanese cuisine restaurant down the street instead.

As we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by the sushi chefs in a very typical Japanese bar environment. The hostess would politely seat us in these amazing comfortable chairs, and large table. The tables are totally suiteable for large groups, there is literally so much space in between each person if each person is seated perfectly.

We had a couple of dishes to share with a couple of people. It was light, and it was prepared for the perfect size of group of people. We enjoyed a hot pot of Beef Sukiyaki.

The flavour was so authentic. I can taste a little bit of the bone marrow broth in there and some soy sauce. It was delicious. The soup was warm, and it was well needed for a rainy day.

The 2nd dish was the special Dragon Roll. I love the various rolls they offer. Especially the amount of ingredients on this roll. Each bite was different, but the base of the roll is still Prawn Tempura. It's the ingredients on top of the roll which made this dish very special.

The last dish was the Pork Cutlet, Tonkatsu. It wasn't as special as I thought it would be. I do enjoy that they respect some people do not like the sauce and placed it in a small dish on the side.

Overall, the place is not bad. Do enjoy the decor and ambience of the restaurant. Will come back to try the other special rolls.
