Sachi Sushi (Whistler)- Hako Hako Hako Roll!

Time to continue my foodie adventure in Whistler! This time,
we went to Sachi Sushi to fulfill our sushi cravings. Just a heads up, they are
located on the second floor and their signage isn’t very prominent so it is
easy to miss.

I decided to come here after reading much about it on
Urbanspoon and some Whistler food guidebook.
I was craving fresh seafood so we decided to get a few items
to share. What you see here is the
Roll ($11.50), House Roll ($9.50), Tsukimi Tobiko Nigri ($3.00/per piece),
Amaebi Nigri ($3.50/per piece)
. What a sight eh? 😀
Ever since my awesome experience with Amaebi (which is raw
sweet shrimp) at Sushi Hachi, I’ve always been on the lookout for Amaebi at
other restaurants. These were quite expensive per piece but they were very
fresh, slimy, and delicious. They even topped off the Amaebi with tobiko and a
tiny slice of lemon too.
This is essentially Tobiko Nigri but with a quail egg on
top. The quail egg added a slimy coating on top of the tobiko which made the
whole nigri… very smooth to go down. 😀 It was very yummy.
The Hako Roll is one of their signature rolls and it consists
of salmon, raw scallop, s
hrimp, avocado, and lemon. It’s a pressed sushi which
means the bottom rice layer was pressed in a box contraption and not by hand.
This Hako roll was divine. At first bite, you get the fresh seafood in your mouth, and then the citrus undertone hits, and then when the whole nigri is in your mouth, you taste the creamy avocado… oh my godddd. *drool* This
is a must order item!
Their house roll was good but probably not the most
delicious nor affordable roll I’ve had. The layer of salmon and avocado on top was
tasty but did little to enhance the flavours of the scallop roll.
Since Meta Knight and I are not rich at all and cannot
afford to get full off of sashimi and seafood, we decided to order a
Tempura Udon ($11.00) to fill our
tummies. If you relate, gimme a high five! 😀
When the waiter put the udon down, I was a bit shocked because it looked kind of… naked. No garnish, no sprinkle of
green onion, no nothing. Is this the ‘traditional’ way of serving udon? Either way, we both thought it tasted meh. Nothing special.
For the tempura, we were surprised that they didn’t give us
the dipping sauce that usually accompanies it. When we asked the waiter for the
sauce, he made a remark about how people usually just dip the tempura in the
soup, not the sauce. Weird.
Overall, Sachi Sushi is a great sushi joint in Whistler and
the seafood was surprisingly fresh. However, don’t come expecting normal prices
because they do cater to tourists. This meal cost close to
$30 per person and we didn’t eat a lot. 🙁
