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.

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!!

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?
