Sashimi Dinner

Ematei

My brother suggested we give Ematei a try when we were struggling to decide on a restaurant. It’s located right by OCAD U, which is where I attended university. During the four years living by my school, I would walk by the restaurant but I didn’t try it out! There is plenty of parking in the area, you can find street parking, underground parking and parking garages. The exterior of the restaurant really reflects traditional Japanese architecture. Banners and lanterns hang from the make shift shingle roof and it’s identified by 3 Japanese characters. Inside you’ll find a sushi bar near the entrance and an intimate dining space.Read More »

Kampai

After hearing good things about Kampai, I had to see for myself. I brought my mom here on a Sunday night, we arrived around 6:30pm and got a seat right away. Kampai has been at this location for 8 years and they have their regular customers. The interior consists of traditional Japanese décor with a sushi bar a regular bar. There is a pretty good selection of fish with your typical maki rolls and a few additions.Read More »

Bazara

A very intimate and dimly lite restaurant serving fancy Pan-Asian cuisine. The front dining area is really small, it could probably accommodate 25-30 people. There are a few more tables in the back room where the sushi bar is located. We celebrated Sally’s birthday at this interesting restaurant located on Ossington.Read More »

Ryus Noodle Bar

This is one of three competing noodle restaurants in Baldwin Village. Their menu is minimal and clear, with beautiful photography. I haven’t been to a lot of ramen restaurants, but ordering was kinda different. Each ramen comes with a special sauce and there are six to choose from. They recommend that you add the special sauce after you’ve eaten half of the ramen. It allows you experience a different flavour of your noodles! Interesting!Read More »
