H, S and I were thinking of picking up some lunch before they had to head off to the airport. I suggested a couple places that were close to home and they ended up picking Sushi Infinity~ My experiences here have been up & down in the past 8 mths so I was hoping this trip will be different.
Lunch menu includes $16.95 all you can eat option or a two page lunch menu with bento options and a la carte options. You can also order the rolls off the all you can eat menu a la carte.
We ended up ordering:
Salmon Deluxe $10.75
Spicy salmon roll, topped with salmon sashimi, avaocado and a sweet sauce. There is also a drizzle of sesame oil and sesame seeds on top.
H & S really enjoyed the roll, I thought it was not bad. I was a little put off by the sesame oil, which I noticed Sushi Infinity likes to put on a lot of their rolls. But the roll was well made, with a nice thin layer of rice, good amount of spicy salmon and the green onions gave it a nice crunch in every bite.
Bento box w Beef Teriyaki & Mixed Tempura $9.25
The beef was nice thin layers of beef rather than the usual minced up slivers. Teriyaki sauce was really thick, sweet & salty. Salad was meh – good fresh crisp lettuce with a light miso dressing. Tempura looked good (I didn’t try any) but it had nice crunch and H really enjoyed it.
Bento Box w Chicken Teriyaki & Tuna and Salmon Sashimi $9.25
S was deciding between Lunch All You Can Eat or a bento and ended up with the bento. We were all impressed w the amount of chicken that came with his bento; there was actually more chicken than rice! They used dark meat pieces for the teriyaki. Same sauce as before that was good. The chicken was a little overdone for my liking. Sashimi choice came with 2 slices of salmon and 2 slices of tuna. It was actually tuna belly rather than the usual maguro which he really enjoyed.
Bento Box w Salmon Teriyaki & Salmon Sashimi $9.25
When my bento was put in front of me, I smiled. I appreciated the delicate salmon sashimi flower that the sushi chef arranged. The salmon sashimi was good – it tasted fresh and firm. The teriyaki sauce is the same as the rest, sweet and salty. I found there was a little too much sauce on my salmon but no biggie. The salad was ok. Salmon teriyaki was a thin slice of salmon fillet that is cooked well.
Total Damage: $52 (including 2 teas, tax & tip)
Personal Rating: 2.75 out of 5 (Average)
The lunch bento boxes are pretty good value for money. It ended up to be a fairly filling lunch especially with the extra roll we ordered to share. Everything was not bad, service was good and food came out pretty quick (which is key for lunch).
