Beef Teriyaki Don – C$6.95
I’d been to Wild Sushi on Dunbar a couple of weeks ago, and I returned there just the other day for another meal. Well, actually, I was going to try a different Japanese place a couple of blocks away, but when I entered that restaurant whose name I shall not mention, I stood there for a minute without being greeted or acknowledged. Unacceptable for a Japanese restaurant, so I walked out and went to Wild Sushi instead. (I would guess that particular restaurant wasn’t run by Japanese, as that type of non-service wouldn’t be the norm with their culture.)
Anyway, you snooze, you lose, so it was back to Wild Sushi for my second visit. This time, I ordered their Beef Teriyaki Don (C$6.95) and the Chicken Karaage (C$4.25). I’d noted on the blog post about my first visit that it took what seemed like forever for the karaage to come out – but this time it didn’t seem to take as long.
Chicken Karaage – C$4.25
Another difference this time around was the fact that there were seven pieces of chicken – whereas there were “only” six the first time I ordered this dish. (The menu doesn’t state how many pieces come with it.) The one thing that was the same as last time was the fact this karaage still tasted like KFC.
The beef teriyaki don was tasty. The beef was delicious! And oh, the waitress brought me a cup of tea (without my asking) when I was first seated, and refilled it when she noticed I’d drunk half of it. Again, good service. But then, for a small restaurant like Wild Sushi, they would need to ensure they treat their customers right as they want repeat business.
Would I visit again? Probably, if I’m in the area. I would get something else other than karaage, though. It’s not good to have too much KFC-like chicken!
What: Beef Teriyaki Don; Chicken Karaage
Where: Wild Sushi, 4288 Dunbar Street, Vancouver, BC, V6S 2E9
How Much: C$6.95; C$4.25 (after tax and tip, it came to around C$13.50)
Final Thoughts: Good service, decent food…but if you wonder about these types of things (and if they make a big difference to you), no, Wild Sushi isn’t Japanese-owned/operated but Chinese-operated.
