May 22, 2017: For a small snack in the afternoon, we stopped by Sushi Bong in Thornhill. This was my first time to Sushi Bong despite hearing all about their delicious sushi rolls. Their original location is at Yonge and Finch. This location in Thornhill is their second location. It’s located where the World on Yonge Complex is (also where the original Love Me Sweet is).
When we walked in, we were the only dine-in customers. They only have two tables for dine-in as the majority of their orders are all take-outs.
We ordered the classic Dynamite Roll and an order of Gyoza. I was really looking forward to trying their sushi rolls since I had heard so much about it.
The Dynamite Roll had fried shrimp and fish, avocado, cucumber, fish roe, and egg.
The Dynamite Roll appeared like a big fuzzy caterpillar! The rice surrounding the roll was topped with crispy tempura batter bits. The taste was fine but I wasn’t a huge fan of this. The sushi roll was too big to fit into my mouth to eat properly and the crispy bits were too crispy. XD I was disappointed to say the least.
The Gyoza came with six pieces of Japanese style fried vegetable dumplings. The Gyoza was also not very good. The batter was too thick.
We surveyed the prices of their large party trays and thought that their prices were very reasonable and cheap for large orders. Maybe someday I’ll try them out again. With all the surrounding positive feedback on them, I’m willing to give them a second chance.
