Mega Sushi (Steveston)

The weather is finally starting to welcome summer in and if you live in Richmond you would know that Steveston is one of the best places to go to for awesome bbq, biking, frozen yogurt and nice walks by the wharf. But guess what?? Now I have new reason for you to go to Steveston if your hungry! Besides the usual spots: Hogshack, Timothy's, Pajo's, Outpost, Steveston Pizza, Kisamos and etc. I found a new Japanese Restaurant that can be considered as the new hidden gem in Steveston.

Mega Sushi is a new Japanese Restaurant that recently opened their second location in Steveston (their first one in Coquitlam). The place may be hard to spot but it's located at the very end of Chatham street near Garry Point Park. When we arrived, there weren't much cars parked outside the restaurant but when we walked in you would be surprised at how much people knew about the place already. We were thinking maybe some of their customers lived near/around Steveston so instead of driving they probably just walked to the restaurant, that's why there weren't as much cars as we thought it would have. Although if your planning to drive, parking is limited but then again street parking is also available. Upon entering the place, I was again surprised.. but this time because of their interior. It was actually pretty modern and designed well! Their menu was also pretty impressive and unique with multiple food options that looks amazing and delicious to eat! They even have funky titles for their food (such as Monkey Brain: Fried Avocados stuffed with crab meat or Lion King Roll: avocado, cucumber, crab meat in a roll with baked salmon, tobiko and cheese on top) which is cool and fun especially for the customers and adventurous eaters. The servers were also quick at their work, very polite and friendly which is great because you don't have to keep waving your hand around and keep looking at them to try and catch their attention! (but then again, maybe it's because they just recently opened.. I can come back another time to see whether the service is still as good as my experience that day). With the ones that I've tried so far, I would highly recommend trying out their Monkey Brain, Salmon Flower, and their Cherry Blossom Roll. I wanted to try out their Big Boss roll, Paradise roll, and Tank roll but we already ordered too much for three people. The description of these rolls sounds really mouth watering good! Hopefully I'll get a chance to try all of them next time when I come back!

So next time when your in Steveston and you had a craving of Japanese food all of a sudden, go give Mega Sushi a try! I hope you'll like it as much as I do!
