Kinjo Sushi is a place that is well known. It has been in Calgary for many years, and respected by many! I’ve been there twice now, once for lunch, and once for dinner. I personally enjoy the lunch crowd more, as the customers are more business type, and during the evening, it transforms into a family friendly environment.
The fish and seafood isn’t bad, but I do like the special rolls on the menu! The uniqueness is really nice, and they really know how to dress up the plate for the sushi rolls! I enjoy their spicy sushi’s, of any sort. Once you get seated, they do give you a complimentary sampler and that’s always fun and unique!
We always order a lot of sushi as it’s one of my top favourite foods/cuisine. So, we started with some miso soup. It’s a tradition even though I make a darn good one!
My personal favourite is salmon, it’s often a toss up between salmon and tuna for me but I think the butteryness of salmon beats tuna by a hair.
Just to stay fair, we got the Negitoro Sushi which is a tuna sushi!
There’s always something special about a Smoked Salmon Sushi so I had to order that as well. It was pretty delicious!
Since I’m alternating salmon and tuna, I think it’s Tuna Sushi‘s turn to shine. The pieces of tuna was very generous and it had a great taste and texture to it!
Tuna is going to win the night as we ordered more tuna dishes than salmon. We also grabbed an order of Spicy Tuna so officially this evening, spicy tuna wins!
The last thing we got was just a little different, it’s Wagyu Beef Sushi just to try. It’s not bad! I think I’d prefer a steak if this was my path to take. But, if you know me, I’m a meat and potato girl, so don’t mess with a good thing!
This was a fun experience at Kinjo. I think I really enjoyed watching the sushi being prepared for me and all the other guests. But, for whatever reason, my sushi tasted better when I was seated in a booth!
