Munchie Adventure: Kingsway Sushi 東壽司, Vancouver

After spending $300 on books at BCIT, I was so ready for food! I suggested Kawawa for ramen, but KW heard negative things about it, so we decided upon Kingsway Sushi. I usually come here for late night, so not sure if lunch is the same quality! =) And partly cuz KW has their Gold Card (10% off =D)

We were seated very quickly, the store was about 75% full, not bad for a Thursday. Looked at the two menus, and realized for an extra dollar we could get mango pudding (and a few other things too), so we decided to pay an extra $1 for that mango pudding! =P And it was good!

The fried foods were very nicely done, crispy and not over-done. I was very satisfied. (picture of ika)

Especially liked the sole, very juicy inside.

Weird how they gave us tempura sauce before we ordered tempura though =P

Chicken wings were awesome too, gobbled them before I could get a pic! There were also fried scallops (imitation) and they were pretty good too! Too bad they "ran out" of the popcorn oysters,  really wanted to try that >n<

Sushi looked a bit ugly, but size was decent (not too big). I couldn't figure out the cheesy California roll, but I assumed it was the one with fried imitation crab xD Not bad, prefer normal California roll better =P

To make verify our assumptions, we also ordered a dynamite roll (which was very good btw), and figured that the previous fried roll was indeed a "cheesy" California roll. =P

Gyozas were VERY hot, almost burned myself on it!

I ended up paying $15, and walked out very full and happy. Service wasn't bad for an AYCE and very quick. I like their system for ordering, but their credit card machine took a bit long to complete the transaction (or maybe it's just me xD)
