Izumi. In Japanese, this means ‘spring’, source of water. It is also commonly used as a given Japanese name, family name, and place name. Although, it is used as a unisex name, it is more feminine. I find it quite pretty, in that sense. (Oh, and of course I noticed, the staff were all women! Ha, go us women!! Ooops, sorry about that outburst)
This is actually located in a food court, in the shopping centre, named Metrotown, in Burnaby, British Columbia. I had decided to fly down to Vancouver, one weekend, back in August, for the Michael Jackson Immortal Tour, with the Cirque du Soleil. And what better way, to incorporate some sushi in my diet! But hey, when do I really need an excuse to consume some delicious sushi, hahaha!! ;D
So, I decided to order a Negitoro roll, (tuna & green onions with rice & nori, not one of Dawn’s favorites, as she is not a fan of green onions!) along with one of their given combos. This consisted a mini California roll, and the standard pieces of Nigiri sushi. (tuna, salmon, shrimp, and yellowtail) It was quite scrumptious, even being served from a food court. Of course, I do believe, since I was on the West Coast, I wasn’t that surprised about the quality, as it is closer to the ocean, than Alberta!
Therefore, if you are ever in the Burnaby area of Vancouver, and feeling like you need a burst of energy, from all your hard work at shopping, Izumi Sushi, might become a mini stop for you, for some quick & delicious sushi. Just try not to forget, to let us know what your thoughts are!
