On Thursday, my friend Stella and I caught up over dinner at ND Sushi & Grill (3 Baldwin Avenue). This restaurant is a quaint place located in a pretty charming neighbourhood not a far walk from St. Patrick subway station.
SMOKED SALMON SALAD WITH PLUM DRESSING
We are both huge smoked salmon fans, and this did not disappoint. AMAZING.
albacore tuna, sesame soyu
We were also super impressed with this dish! The fish was so tender and delicious, and the flavours all went so well together. So far, a very strong start to our meal.
SPICY SCALLOP ROLL
scallop, crunch tenkatsu, avocado, tobiko, scallion
I don’t think I had ever had scallop in a sushi roll before, so we decided to try this out. Our first two dishes were so exquisitely presented that I immediately noticed how the sushi rolls aren’t really given the same attention. Regardless, I really enjoyed this, and having the soft scallop there was interesting. I didn’t notice any of the crunchy tempura pieces though. Also, I felt like sushi roll came apart a little too easily for me.
imitation crab, salmon, tuna, hamachi, tamago, cucumber, avocado, tobiko
This is probably the most massive sushi roll I’ve ever encountered, haha. It was a messy eat but super satisfying with all of the different ingredients it contained.
Overall, we really enjoyed our dinner here and wouldn’t hesitate to come back. I do think I’m more interested in the non-sushi-roll dishes here though, and would love to try more of their cold or hot dishes as well as their dessert menu.
