After some snowboard shopping at Coastal Riders on New Year’s Eve, we decided to eat close by at Sushi Avenue in Langley.
I ordered an Oyako Don, Tamago Nigiri, and Deep Fried California roll. My oyako don was fairly large, but there was definitely too much rice for the chicken given. The chicken was pounded pretty thin, and then fried. Since it was pounded so thin, the chicken actually dried out a bit, and wasn’t very tender or juicy. The sauce was good though and added the right amount of saltiness to it. The tamago was light and sweet and the rice was the right texture. The deep fried California roll was one of the better ones I’ve had. The batter was light and crisp, and not oily. Although warm, the roll and rice itself didn’t get soggy or mushy which is really good. The filling was pretty good too.
My friend ordered some Chicken Karaage, Ebi Mayo, Real Crab California Roll. There was definitely real crab in the California roll, and you can notice the difference in taste. It’s definitely better than a regular California Roll, but also almost double the price. The ebi mayo was a lot different from what we are used to seeing in izakayas. It wasn’t fried and crispy. The chicken karaage was seasoned nice, and had good flavour, but I thought it was fried a bit too long, and got a bit too dark and hard.
The place is pretty good, and the staff is really friendly.
