Review: Ichiro Japanese Restaurant

by gigi on December 3, 2007

Jenkins and I went to Ichiro Japanese Restaurant in Steveston one day. It is located at 12011 2nd Ave in Richmond. My aunt introduced me to this place a while back and I have always enjoyed the variety of set lunches here.

I decided to go with a set lunch that included California roll, Dynamite roll, and cucumber roll. I’m not a big fan of cucumber rolls, so I asked to substitute it with a tuna roll. :) I always like the rolls here because they are well-sized and fit in your mouth in one bite. There also isn’t too much rice and the California rolls do not have too much mayo. The Dynamite rolls are simply made with just prawn tempura and avocado but very tasty.

My set lunch also came with miso soup…

…and ebi sunomono. The ebi sunomono was not too strong with vinegar flavour and very refreshing. Occasionally, this is substituted with another salad item such as potato salad.

Jenkins had an Oyako don, which is chicken, onions, and egg over rice. He likes this because it is a hot dish and relatively healthy. The sauce from the chicken and egg really permeates the rice and is very tasty.

He also ordered a side of BC rolls to go with his rice. Nothing too special about this, although the salmon skin was nice and crispy.

Another enjoyable meal at Ichiro. I’ve never tried anything out of the ordinary here but the items here are always tasty and well done. Although the service is friendly and your tea is always topped up, it does take them a while to prepare the food, especially during busy lunch hours.
