Shinobu…..Yonge St, Toronto

Food & Drink

Went here two weeks ago for my birthday dinner with the family. I’ve never been here before but I wanted to find an affordable and yummy sushi place uptown so I went over to Yelp and found a hole-in-the-wall called Shinobu. I read a review about the volcanic rainbow roll which they torch at your table so I had to try it.

The venue is small but cozy, just the way I like it. Luckily we made reservations so we didn’t have to wait.

I ordered a grapefruit cocktail which was really yummy. The waitress brought over half a grapefruit along with a plastic juicer which was cute. The seaweed salad had very little actual seaweed, it was mostly filled with other mixed greens, but all of the ingredients were very fresh.

The volcanic rainbow roll was delicious! The melt-in-your-mouth experience reminded me of the Japango Roll at Japango, but without the extra spicy kick (Shinobu’s roll uses a honey sauce). I normally don’t like to have dessert at restaurants because they always end up to be under-whelming but the green tea cheesecake here is amazing! Would definitely come back again to try their other items. Thanks Yelpers!
