It’s no secret. My favourite Japanese haunt in Edmonton is the downtown location of Mikado Restaurant. Now, there are a few mighty fine Japanese establishments in my city, but none so far, have touched the quality I find in Mikado, Alberta’s first Japanese restaurant. I need to preface this that when I go out for Japanese, I don’t really touch the sushi or maki rolls. I go straight for either the chirashi bowl or a sashimi combo of sorts, so I’m really focusing on the quality of fresh fish they bring in. With rolls, you can hide a lot in rice and cucumber. But when you just want sliced fish to eat, it really does matter where you go for your sashimi and chirashi.
I’m curious about Furusato, because of Chris’s reviews, but since I live all the way in the north side of the city, Mikado’s downtown location is hard to beat.
