Toshi, 181 E. 16th Ave., 604-874-5173
Yes, the lineup is brutal. But once inside this wildly popular spot you’ll be rewarded with the simple, delicious house roll featuring prawn tempura, tobiko, and cucumber topped with sliced avocado.
Kishimoto, 2054 Commercial Dr., 604-255-5550
This one combines scallop, salmon, and radish sprouts, with a twist: the roll is wrapped in crisp white soy paper instead of the usual seaweed. (Actually, it has that, too.)
Ajisai, 2081 W. 42nd Ave., 604-266-1428
The skill of Chef Hide is evidenced by the thin, delicate filament of tamago that encloses the roll, lending it just a touch of sweetness. Inside: tuna, salmon, prawn, surimi crab, tobiko (flying fish roe), avocado, and cucumber. Dreamy.
Bistro Sakana, 1123 Mainland St., 604-633-1280
Mango and Okanagan goat cheese rolled in sushi rice and topped with prosciutto, sweet unagi sauce, and basil pesto. And it works.
Octopus’ Garden, 1995 Cornwall Ave., 604-734-8971
One of the city’s most acclaimed sushi restaurants continues the Ringo theme with this roll: hamachi, oba leaf (another name for our friend, green shiso), green beans, tobiko, mango, and tempura bits.
