Just a Taste: Izumi Restaurant
Izumi sits in a residential area within a strip mall on Arlington Avenue. From my understanding they recently had an ownership change and now serve Japanese and Korean dishes. We went for sushi strictly, but my goodness did the other dishes smell and look delicious. They serve sashimi, maki rolls, tempura, teppanyaki, fried chicken, bento boxes and more. The restaurant was clean, spacious and the servers were friendly and patient with our order taking.
We ordered salmon nigiri, inari and an assortment of maki rolls. All of the food was presented nicely and very fresh! My one complaint would be eating the large rolls, but you definitely get your money's worth at Izumi and I'm down with that. My favourite roll would have to be the specialty dragon roll which is avocado, crab and cucumber with BBQ eel on top.
All you can eat sushi is a gateway to the sushi world, but once you try other Saskatoon joints I promise you that you will be impressed. I'll definitely be back.
