Had takeout the other day from Sakura Sushi! My mom decided to get me and my sister Japanese food the other day, and it was so good! I haven’t ate Japanese food for awhile and I was getting better from my sickness, so it was a good treat from all the congee and tea.
They also provided chopsticks, spoons and soya sauce with the takeout.
I believe this was the Chicken Teriyaki lunch special for $10, without tax. This Chicken teriyaki lunch bento came with rice and salad, along with sashimi pieces with sushi in the other box, and miso soup!
Sushi box came with fresh salmon, white fish, surf clams, and with salmon and white fish nigiri. I don’t really like white fish as much, so I gave them to my sister as she enjoys it more.
I really loved this entire combo. The teriyaki sauce wasn’t too sweet and sticky (compared to many others I’ve tried before)… and because the sauce is usually drizzled all over the chicken, the difference between the sweet/savoury/thick/gooey is really important. The chicken is soft and chewy, which is a really nice combination balance of the sauce and chicken.
Now, I know the salad wasn’t appealing to me in the beginning. But it was actually so good! & Honestly, it’s all about the dressing. The dressing was light and kept making me want to eat the salad because of the overall harmony.
I enjoyed this meal a lot! A simple, typical Japanese dish served in Toronto, it was good because of the balance with the sauce and the chicken – It really makes a difference for my taste budz as I don’t like the sauce to overpower the chicken.
Till next time, ♥
