Newly opened in Coquitlam is Sushi Tree, specializing in Inari Sushi.
Inari Sushi rice is made of deep-fried tofu (inari) pocked stuffed with seasoned, sushi rice.
The tofu is flavoured with sweet and savory dashi-based broth. The result is an unexpected salty, sweet tasty delicacy!
The Inari Sushi at Sushi Tree is priced around $2.65 with some of the specialty ones priced a bit more. They come in a variety of flavours including:
- chopped salmon
- beef teriyaki
- chicken teriyaki
- masago with pickled radish
- green seaweed
- unagi (eel)
- tuna salad
You will need to check out the display case to see what is available.
Sushi has become very popular and when you get inside the shop I saw the staff working hard at keeping up with the demand.
I got a few of their flavours including tempura; beef teriyaki; chopped salmon; unagi; smoked salmon; and cooked tuna.
The Inari Sushi were pretty tasty and all the ingredients seemed fresh. I personally can only eat probably 2 Inari Sushi at once as they are quite filling.
