Nori Japanese Restaurant (Nanaimo)
|The Island Fever Roll (top) & the Strawberry Crunch Roll|
I LOVE sushi. Yes I do. Seafood rolls, tempura rolls, veggie rolls, inside out rolls, cones, nigiri or maki - I love it all. It's time to talk about the highly acclaimed Nori Japanese Restaurant. This sophisticated japanese restaurant boasts the best sushi in town!
As soon as you enter the doors of Nori, you are immediately greeted by the chefs - who are very warm and friendly. You have the option of sitting at a table or sitting up at the sushi bar and interacting with the chefs, either way you are in for a treat. I have never had bad service at Nori and always appreciate the complimentary dishes the chefs usually send out.

|Kanisake Tempure (Crab & Salmon)|
We also tried the Kanisake Tempura ($5.99) which was salmon and crab tempura drizzled with a delicable sweet soy sauce.
Of course we had to order a couple rolls to complete the meal, finally deciding on a couple of special maki rolls; the Island Fever Roll ($10.99) and the Strawberry Crunch Roll ($12.99).
Everything arrived in a timely manner, even though it was 6pm and the place was stuffed like a can of sardines. The staff has always been efficient and friendly - as well as very attentive.
The Island Fever Roll is probably my favourite roll so far (haven't tried the whole menu, yet) it is topped with seared tuna, masago (eggs) and smoked salmon. The inside contains tempura spicy prawn and avocado. Fresh, delicious and flavourful - heck you don't even need soy sauce for this one! I love to taste the combination of flavours so I usually opted out of using soy sauce anyways.
