After seeing so many beautiful pictures of aburi sushi on Instagram, I suggested to SP and SK to check out Green Leaf Sushi.
I’ve been hearing there are long line ups so I came a little earlier to grab a seat. Luckily, it still wasn’t very busy on a Sunday for some reason. Ambiance is simple and nothing special.
Aburi Sushi Platter
We decided to get the Aburi Sushi Platter since we could try most of the aburi sushi. This came with the following:
- Sime Saba Oshi Sushi
- Yukke Tuna Oshi Sushi
- Aburi Tobiko Roll
- Salmon Oshi Sushi
- Hotate Oshi Sushi
- Basil Ebi oshi Sushi
This is around $60 so definitely a platter to share. Between three girls, we were beyond full and could barely finish it in the end. The sushi all have a very creamy topping which made it very filling and by the end of it, we felt like each one tasted very similar. I would suggest splitting it with more people so you’ll find each one more satisfying. Our favourite was the Salmon Oshi and of course I had to compare it to the famous Miku’s. Although the price is cheaper, Miku’s is still much better. We found that the rice easily fell apart and the sauce was too creamy at Green Leaf.
Overall, based on the aburi sushi platter we tried, Green Leaf was a good alternative to Miku especially for its price. However, I would still go to Miku if I wanted to treat myself. I would need to revisit and try their other dishes to really comment on the restaurant overall though.
– Great variety of aburi sushi
– Prices are quite reasonable
– Rice fell apart easily from the items we tried
– Found the aburi sushi to be too creamy
