Sushi Kiku Japanese Cuisine

Posted on July 6, 2014


I have so many times professed my love for Japanese food. After all these years, I still get excited with it as if it were the first time that I have tried it. My friend, Tere and I have been addicted to it and once we have learned of Japanese AYCE buffets that cooks it fresh as you order, it was something that became a regular thing. But lately something has changed. Tere has discovered a better place. One that cooks it fresh and cooks it fast. I am talking about Sushi Kiku Japanese Cuisine.

Just a little bit west of the Hwy 404 and Hwy 7, the dining area is accessible and there is ample parking. Walking in, there were a lot of booths on both sides and a series of banquets in the middle. There’s ample space between tables but it does get busy as the restaurant seemed so popular. Each table was occupied and it was a mix of couples and families. I recommend that you call in for a reservation if you decide to drop in.

Sitting on our table, we immediately ordered our usual favourites: shrimp tempura, salmon belly, spicy salmon hand roll, grilled squid and sauri fish, miso soup, garlic beef, salmon & white tuna sashimi and I must have forgotten some new thing that we tried. Each dish arrived so fast, it was literally exhausting to keep up. This is because they have a different way of ordering the dishes. They have provided each table with an iPad tablet that has the menu ordering system. Each time you hit send, the ticket goes straight to the kitchen. Now how awesome is that? Dishes come literally under 10 minutes and sometimes when it is from the sushi bar, under 5. I think we have found our new favourite Japanese AYCE buffet!

This weekend we were back and I find it amusing that my godchild Anne was taking pictures of the food out of her new Fuji Instax Mini. Works a lot like the old Polaroid but I was wincing at the thought that each shot was making a print. I guess she was copying what I was doing. A future food blogger! Ah well…she would eventually learn there is a difference to her camera to my iPhone once her supply of film runs out. And you can definitely count on me to feed on to that photography skill growing.
