Chris' Corner: Yuki Sushi, Alliston Ontario

Yuki Sushi, Alliston Ontario

YuKi Sushi, Alliston Ontario, the "new" Sushi Restaurant in town.
Yuki Sushi Alliston Ontario
OK, "new" is relative. But I finally walked over to the Southwest corner of Victoria and Paris streets and tried the fare at Alliston newest and only Sushi Restaurant.

I decided to order a Bento Box and an order of Edamame and walk back to the office and sample the fare of this intimate restaurant in downtown Alliston.

I sampled the Salmon Bento Box, which included a salad, miso soup, sashimi, sushi and a roll.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh, very tasty, and I found the Miso soup and Edamame not salty at all, which seems to be my most common complaint.

Now, this restaurant, is not an "all-you-can-eat" restaurant like Sushi Hama in Bolton or Akira Sushi in Barrie. What you might fall short in quantity, I feel you will gain in quality. I think there is enough variety in the dinner choices to satisfy almost everybody and enough choice in the a la carte menu for evening the discerning sushi palate.

I have not seen dishes like the Goma-ae (Japanese Style Spinach Salad), Spicy Sashimi Salad (Sashimi and vegetables tossed in a spicy sauce), Chirashi (Assorted Sashimi on a bed of rice), nor a la carte Sashimi like Maguro (Tuna), Albacore (Longfin Tuna), Izumi dai (Tilapia), Ika (Cuttlefish), Amaebi (Sweet Shrimp) in any of the local "all you can eat" sushi restaurants.

If you live in New Tecumseth or surrounding area, you no longer have far to drive to sate your craving for fine Sushi.

The fare at YuKi (pronounced You-key) Sushi, located on the West side of Paris Street south of Victoria Street, 16 Paris Street, Alliston is anything BUT yucky!. Helen and I will soon be back for dinner.

Hi Chris, nice community post.  However, sushi is not my cup of tea.  When they can get it to Mooooo, we will meet your for lunch.

Chris, I have to say that is quite a review. If I was near by I would have to stop in and try it for myself. Have a great day!

Al and Peggy, I am sure it wouldn't take but three or four visits before you started to appreciate the cuisine, but "moo" is good also =)

Keith, we tend to vacation in North America, and I know that before we head out to a new destination, I will look on AR for reviews of good eats in an area... we are heading to Hershey in March and I am keeping my eye out for recommedations.

David, If you have time when you are in Ontario, it would be a pleasure to meet.

Peter and Linda, Helen and I actually do not eat out a lot.  Probably about once a month, but it is nice to have the choice... We have found Sushi to be one of the healthiest choices we can make while eating out.

Hi Chris, Sounds like a wonderful place to get Japanese food.  Glad to hear you enjoy it.  I enjoy how the food is served in bento boxes.  Very organized.

Enjoy!

Chris, it seems like the sushi phenomenon, once the domain of the ultra trendy urban hipsters, has made the transition successfully to the smaller communities and sushi restaurants are becoming a staple of life much like Chinese restaurants managed to do a couple of generations ago. I love that this diversity is spreading beyond the big city limits.

Doug, Helen, myself, and now even my seven year old son Alec loves Sushi.  The fact that it is a relatively healthy food is important also.

Malcolm, when we moved to New Tecumseth in 2002, we had to drive to Downtown Toronto for Sushi.  Now we can get quality Sushi at reasonable prices locally... Wow!
