True Sushi Company- Truly a Winning Choice

It was definitely a happy birthday for me this year, especially being able to partake in my favourite cuisine... SUSHI. Last year, I was a ripe watermelon about to burst with my second child, and as all of us female sushi lovers know, and much to our dismay, it's a forbidden meal while pregnant.
And, as it has become habit for our special events, my husband made us a reservation at our favourite place: True Sushi.
Our reservation was for later in the evening, however, our earlier plans had fallen through and with a simple phone call to the restaurant, our reservations were changed to a much earlier time and we were welcomed to come any time.
We were the only patrons when we got there due to our early  arrival.  Fine with me!  I don't enjoy crowded places.  The hostess said we could sit anywhere, so we picked the best booth at the front of the restaurant by the only outside window.

Since we were just enjoying our time alone and being out minus the kiddos, the hubby and I ordered some Sake. (We like it hot.) At True Sushi you can order a large hot sake for around $10... and believe me, it's plenty for two.

We definitely knew we had to have the amazing appetizer we'd tried on our very first visit: Heart Attack.  It's incredibly delicious.  Fresh jalapeno halves stuffed with tuna, fried in tempura batter and topped with spicy mayo and Sriracha.  Oh my goodness, let me just tell you... these things are so yummy, you may want to order a second plate of them.

In summary, the evening was a great success... and I was full and content.  The sushi at True Sushi is by far my favourite in the city.  Hayashi: overpriced.  Sushi King:  well, even though it's the EXACT same menu as and the predecessor of True Sushi, the atmosphere is much different and I don't feel as appreciated there.

To top off my third and most excellent experience here, when I asked our server to thank the sushi chef and compliment him on a yet-again fabulous meal, with his return thanks, he sent over a complimentary (and quite ADORABLE) dessert.

True Sushi is family-owned, tasty, tidy and well-run.  The staff is super friendly and polite.  From our first experience nearly one year ago on Valentine's Day to our massively-huge take-out order for our Wedding Anniversary picnic, True Sushi has come through for us on taste, presentation and efficiency.  My husband and I just wish we could frequent the joint more often.  We plan on returning for V-day again this year.  I can't wait!!

Our Anniversary platter, complete with two salads they added free of charge... just because it was our Anniversary.  As you can see... my husband had already been attacking the rolls before I could snatch this shot.  Soooo good.

True Sushi is perfectly located right off I-25 directly across from Cinemark Century Rio 24.  So, have a lovely time dining at True Sushi Company then head across the parking lot to catch a flick!  What could be a better combo?
