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!

See the complete Big Catch menu on their website, or read my previous posts about Big Catch here, and here.

Kingsland Market is now the Market on Macleod

Big Catch's Nine-one-one roll

Big Catch’s Nine-one-one roll

Here’s another Iceland-interuption.. for sushi! (It’s worth it for sushi!) I’ve posted about Big Catch Sushi twice before (one, two) but that was when Big Catch was in Kingsland Market… and now it’s in the Market on Macleod!¬† I heard about the change even before I went on my holiday, but haven’t been able to post until now about it!

No, they haven’t moved, but rather the market has a new name and is under new management…
so if you haven’t been there yet – go check it out!

Me and a friend did back in July (this is a delayed post because of all of those wonderful Iceland posts!) and here’s a little glimpse of what we enjoyed.

The Nine-One-One roll has crunchy wonton bits and tuna topped with salmon, fire sauce, tobiko, green onions and cayenne pepper. It was a pretty spicy roll, though not as hot as I thought it might be.

I’ve had the Zesty Avalanche roll a few times – it’s spicy miso-infused salmon and daikon topped with prawn and avocado served with Japanese mayo.
