I kinda love Big Catch, and they recently added a few new items to their menu that I wanted to try out.
Autumn Haze ($13.25)
Sweet-mirin glazed torch seared salmon-toro topped with mizore-radish
The salmon didn’t really have a lot of flavour, and I thought that the ratio of fish to rice favoured the rice WAY too much. The overall flavour was pretty bland; even the radish was sort of…’eh’. I tasted it on it’s own, and it didn’t really seem like anything at all.
Solar Flare ($13.25)
Miso braised tender pork topped with onion-ginger garnish
The pieces are also topped with a little slice of (cherry?) tomato. Despite the website saying it’s pork… it’s actually red tuna – and they were out of red tuna so swapped out white while I was there. Confusing. This also had way too much rice, and overall was pretty lacking in the intensity of flavour that I’m accustomed with at Big Catch.
I also added an order of Tuna Sashimi ($7.75). The pieces seemed smaller than I’d anticipate for the price.
Overall I was kind of disappointed with my dinner from Big Catch. That being said.. with all of that rice, it was very filling – it took two meals to finish off my order!
