Shishinori: Healthy Japanese Meals

By Foodobyte @foodobyte


Shishinori is an ultra cute Japanese restaurant that serves healthy and beautiful meals. In an attempt to be healthy, Grape and I picked Shishinori for our post-workout meal. However, I’ve previously heard rumblings of the small protein portions, so I gulped down some whey before going.

I ordered the Hawaii Ahi Poke Bowl ($12). It came in three flavours: spicy, shoyo, and wasabi. I was deciding between spicy and wasabi… I struggled because they’re both spicy LOL. In the end, I settled on spicy based on the server’s recommendation.

It was essentially spicy tuna, which I love as a sushi roll. As I expected, there wasn’t much protein. Some chunks of tuna were quite chewy too. The meal also came with brown rice and a lightly dressed salad topped with berries and avocado.

For an additional $2.50, I combo’d a Magic Lychee Ice Tea and Enoki Miso Soup. Both tasted great, and I would pick those again.

Grape ordered the Ahi Tuna Carpaccio ($12) that was plated with similar sides. She got the Creamy Strawberry Ice Tea, which she thought was just okay.

The Matcha Parfait ($6.7) was a cup full of matcha soft serve, taro ice cake, corn flakes, coffee jelly, gum drops, wafer and pocky sticks. This easily beat Soft Peaks and their soft serve parfaits.

Shishinori excels on presentation, but drops the ball on cleanliness. I question how frequently these utensil holders are cleaned. Also, there were several grains of dried up rice on the table that I had to flick away before sitting down.

Final Bytes

  1. Ask for clean utensils or use the disposable ones
  2. Little protein
  3. Matcha ice cream is always a crowd pleaser
