Nagano Sushi – Coquitlam

I was down near Coquitlam Center and I had some time to kill, and of course I was hungry, so I went into Nagano Sushi for a pre-dinner snack.

First impressions were that the combos and many of the menu items were just a bit more expensive than most other sushi restaurants that I visit in the Tri-Cities area.

Not being too hungry, I decided to just order a couple rolls and an appetizer. The appetizer I chose was the agedashi tofu. It was an excellent choice. The tofu squares were crispy on the outside and just the right texture of creamy tofu on the inside.

I also ordered a spicy tuna roll and a BC roll. Both of those rolls were top-quality. The spicy tuna roll had a generous amount of spicy tuna inside it as well as very fresh and crispy green lettuce. It’s a funny thing to notice about sushi, however, the rice that is used can make a world of difference.

Inexpensive sushi often uses rice that just doesn’t taste the same as good-quality rice. I’m not sure how that is or why that is but it is something that I do notice. Nagano sushi uses what I think is good quality rice.

The second roll I ordered was the BC Roll. It was good. I don’t know why I ordered a BC Roll seeing as I’m not a really big fan of the BC Roll. However, it was good.

Overall, Nagano sushi is a little bit more expensive than the other places I go to around Coquitlam but the quality was noticeably better. This isn’t to say that the other places are low quality, it’s just that Nagano is somehow a step above.

I give Nagano sushi two thumbs up and highly recommend it. But be aware, your meal at Nagano Sushi will cost a little more than the other places that you will go to around Coquitlam.

Nagano Sushi Coquitlam is located behind Coquitlam Centre at #120 – 2918 Glen Drive in Coquitlam, BC.
