Urban Sushi

Urban Grill & Urban Sushi on UrbanspoonI used to come for lunch all the time when I worked right next door. I really liked their Negitoro roll, but that was over 8 years ago.
I decided to gather my friends for lunch at Urban Sushi to see how it was now. It had been renovated and had a modern, clean look. They had integrated the other – Urban Grill restaurant together with Urban Sushi.

The tables and seating were a bit crammed, and with coats and bags especially during winter times, we didn’t have any place to put them. I kept my coat on, while another bunched it up on her lap.
Service was very friendly, and the menu was quite extensive for such a small restaurant.

Before it used to be a ‘roll’, as in the rice was on the outside. Now it was a ‘maki’, with the rice wrapped inside the seaweed. I didn’t mind either one, though I find rolls are bigger. The big question was – how was the taste? The flavour was really good. I’m not sure what they add in that gives it a wonderful flavour. However, I was a bit disgusted that the rice and fish was warm…eek…

The gyoza was ok. Nothing fancy. The bento boxes that two of my friends ordered looked good, and the Beef Udon one other friend ordered looked ok – not authentic Japanese bowl, but she said it’s really good.

For a quick bite or take out, I wouldn’t mind returning again…though not sure about the Negitoro.
