The Love For Cream Cheese Never Ends: Vancouver Rolls at The Sushi Shop

Leave a comment

If you’re a cream cheese fanatic like I am, The Sushi Shop is PERFECT for you!  Not only is most of the menu dedicated to maki rolls and its variants (think square and rectangle sushi!), there are plenty of options for the cream cheese lover 😀  One of my absolute favourite combinations is salmon, avocado, and cream cheese (or just salmon and avocado in general) and The Sushi Shop offers an amazing roll called the Vancouver Roll (in a set of eight) with delicious thinly sliced smoked salmon (not to be confused with regular salmon sashimi – smoked salmon has that great slightly salty, cured flavour to it), avocado, and light cream cheese.  You all know how much I love this place and there are so many reasons why.  Their selection of cream cheese varieties is just one of them!  The Vancouver roll is served in 2 ways on the menu.  You can either order a set of 8 medium sized rolls for $5.95, or you can order the Express Lunch combo G (served from 11am to closing) which includes 12 medium maki rolls, 4 of which are the Vancouver roll.

The Sushi Shop offers these maki rolls with cream cheese and I plan on eating my way through all of them!  I’m actually well on my way there, I’ve tried 4 of the 5 so far *looks sheepish*:

  1. Akanasu Hosomaki (set of 6 small rolls): sun-dried tomato pesto, light cream cheese, sesame
  2. Vancouver Maki (set of 8 medium rolls): smoked salmon, avocado, light cream cheese, sesame
  3. Miami Sumomaki (set of 5 large rolls): soya sheet, smoked salmon, avocado, orange masago, green onion, light cream cheese, tempura, spicy light mayo, sesame
  4. Fusion Sumomaki (set of 5 large rolls): grilled salmon, basil pesto rice, light cream cheese, cherry tomato, cucumber, snow pea sprouts, lettuce, spicy light mayo, sesame
  5. Inferno Sumomaki (set of 5 large rolls): tempura, light cream cheese, sun-dried tomato pesto, red and orange masago, green onion, spicy light mayo, spicy sauce, sesame   

The sumomaki roll varieties can also be ordered as a hand roll, so there’s a few extra options there as well.  YAY!

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ve seen my scrapbook layouts and I’ve made it easier now to peruse through them 😀  I’ve added every single post featuring a scrapbook layout since I’ve started this blog to the category “The Kitchen Table”, so if you’re a scrapbooker like me (or just like to look at pretty paper things), feel free to roam around in there!  I take a lot of pride in my work and I’m really grateful to everyone who’s been reading and following the blog, it means a lot to me.  It’s been so much fun sharing and creating new things for the blog and I love talking about lovely things like craft supplies and brands and paper and all that good stuff, so don’t be shy if you want to hit me up just to yak about scrapbooking.  I just signed up for a Twitter account several days ago, so if you want to follow me, you can find me @AtebyAte; I would love to get to know other foodies and fellow scrapbookers!
