Recently I went for lunch at an excellent sushi place in Langley called Damiko Sushi. They’re located on 200th Street, just past 72 Ave in a little strip mall right next to the Esso gas station. The location is a bit difficult to get to, as you can only access it by going North on 200th, but don’t let that deter you from going! The restaurant is a bit on the small side, so if you are going with a group or during meal rush hours, it is definitely a good idea to make a reservation.
I decided to try their Fancy Roll, and it was indeed pretty fancy!
The colour and presentation of this roll was amazing. The Fancy Roll has “crab meat, avocado, cucumber inside. Topped with salmon, tamago and masago.” For those not familiar with Japanese words, tamago is grilled egg, and masago is a kind of fish eggs/caviar. There were three different colours of masago – black, green and orange/red-ish. I’m not sure what the sauces were that were on the plate, but they added some great flavour to the rolls. I really liked this roll, and was surprised at how filling it was. Normally I would get a side order of Miso Soup or Sunomono, but this dish was plenty.
Others in my group had (and enjoyed) the Spicy Ichi Roll, Chicken Teriyaki Lunch Box, and the Salmon Teriyaki. One of my friends comes here regularly, and thinks their Miso Soup is some of the best she’s ever tasted.
The prices are very reasonable, and the service is quick and wonderful. Their entire menu is available for take-out, plus they also do catering as well. They’re open daily from 11:30am to 9:30pm. Quite impressive hours for a restaurant in the Langley area! I definitely recommend giving it a try sometime!
