Sushi Kimu Calgary, AB - tasty sushi rolls and generous servings!

For a recent lunch in Calgary, we went with my cousin and his fiancĂ©e to Sushi Kimu, a little hole in the wall sushi joint they recently stumbled upon in the NE.  The spotlight is their sushi rolls which has a lot of fusion choices as well as some creative ones... onto the food!
We started with a bowl of Agedashi Tofu - fried piping hot, the exterior was crisp and interior remained silky smooth. The pozu soya sauce could have used a bit more lemon, but tasty none the less.

Next out was the Deluxe sashimi - Chef's choice of six types of eighteen slices sashimi. We had thick slabs of red tuna, salmon, regular tuna, seared scallops and blanched octopus. All were fresh and quickly devoured

We then had the was the Veracruz roll - Chopped scallop, masago, green onion, cucumber, crab meat and prawn tempura topped with spicy mayo and unagi tonkatsu sauce. There was a bit too much sauce, but the crispy shrimp tempura still stood out.

The Salmon, Tuna and Unagi sushi nigiri were well executed with well seasoned rice and fresh seafood - and disappeared in a flash.

The Beef Sashimi - Thin slices of lightly seared alberta beef served with garlic chips, green onions and ponzu sauce, while lightly seared, could have either used a thinner cut or a more tender cut of beef.

Spider roll - Deep fried soft shell crab with cucumber, avocado and masago with sweet sauce came out next and the soft shell crab was nicely fried with a good crunch.

We finished our meail with the Calgary special roll - Avocado, cucumber, crab, masago wrapped with deep fried marinated squid, green onions, masago and sichime (Japanese spices) topped with our steak and mayonnaise sauce.  It sounds like a mouthful - and it is! Its basically a california roll with calmari on top -the multiple flavors and textures worked well together without overpowering one another.

the VERDICT
Overall, a great little place for sushi rolls with generous portion sizes for the price.  We ended up packing up food for an afternoon snack later.
