Kishimoto Japanese Kitchen: 2054 Commercial Dr, Vancouver, BC
If you haven’t been here, you need to come ASAP. It’s been a while since I enjoyed lunch at Kishimoto with my family, and that seriously needs to change because this place is incredible. The food is just purely amazing, and everything is insanely beautiful. I’m not even going to write too much about each dish – I don’t have to! You’ll see 🙂
We arrived at around 11:30. This place gets very busy during peak hours, as I read from Yelp reviews. Luckily we scored a great seat near the window.
The chefs are, as always, focused and careful while our server was kind and helpful when it came to explaining.
Fried eggplant with miso sauce
Caterpillar roll and oishi-sushi.
Look how elaborate everything is!
Seline’s teriyaki chicken with rice
Rice-paper pinwheels and candles on our plates 🙂
The Caterpillar roll was designed to look like a real caterpillar!
Sashimi on rice
Seared black cod, which is something I always order at Japanese restaurants. This was perfectly flaky, so tender, and melted in my mouth. The glaze was incredible.
A Japanese-style seafood pancake slash omelet
With bonito flakes and a tangy soy sauce, I found this to be a little bit salty.
What an incredible meal! I think Kishimoto beats Ajisai sushi in my Vancouver-sushi rankings. Will definitely be back!
