Hitoe has been our go-to sushi restaurant for the past year now. Why? Well, the restaurant has amazing sushi combo deals that are very reasonably priced. Additionally, this Japanese-run establishment, consistently provides excellent, accommodating service.
Located on 4th Ave. near Bleinhem, in Kitsilano, its decor is relatively spartan and the restaurant is quite tiny with only around five tables. Needless to say, they do a great deal of take-out business.
I always order #2 Taka Roll Combo ($10.95) – 8 piece California Roll, 6 piece Dynamite Roll, 8 piece BC Roll - served with seaweed salad and miso soup (not pictured). It’s a lot of food and I usually have left-overs.
Hitoe Sushi uses real, grated horseradish instead of the usual powdered wasabi, and their pickled ginger is not dyed pink with food coloring.
Gary always orders the #3 Special Sashimi & Sushi Combo ($11.95) – 6 pieces of assorted sashimi, 8 piece California roll, 1 piece tuna sushi, 1 piece salmon sushi, 1 piece tamago – also served with seaweed salad and miso soup. Again, a large portion and great quality sushi.
With hospitable Japanese service, fantastic food, real wasabi, reasonable prices, and large portions – it’s no wonder Hitoe Sushi is such a popular place!
