2803 Eglinton Avenue East
This tiny restaurant in a tiny plaza that would probably be overlooked by many has one of Toronto's most authentic sushi bars. I came here quite some time ago so I won't go into detail about everything.
My sister and I treated my mom to Zen for her birthday dinner (my mom's birthday is in June, I'm quite behind on posting), we got a table at the bar which is where the major happens.
We started off with complimentary miso soup and we also ordered the grilled Black Cod.
I got the Chirashi.
My sister got the Tokujyo Sushi
My mom splurged and got the Omaskase Sushi. The fish she got were: Fluke, Sea Bass, Hobo, Sea Bream, Hiramasa, Squid, Hamachi, Medium tuna, Shrimp , Fatty tuna, Spanish Mackerel, Eel. She also got a fatty tuna roll.
Our sushi chef and fish educator.
Overall I Thought Zen was really good, I loved how they informed you on where each fish came from and they offer fish that you don't normally see at other Japanese restaurants. We also got a lesson on the different types of seaweed (did you know that? cause I sure didn't!), and you can actually taste the difference between the more expensive seafood.
I would probably visit Zen more often if the location was more convenient for me.
