I noticed Kingyo actually took the spot of the old StoneGrill restaurant. It’s spacious with individual small tables and a few bigger communal tables and a sushi bar. The atmosphere is rather dimmed.
MJ and I were comfortably seated at a communal table with a fish tank in the middle.
Tako Wasabi ($4.20)
– Diced Octopus marinated with wasabi stems and sea kelp. Served with seaweed paper. Octopus can be raw, cooked or half&half and we ordered the raw. 🙂
This is a dish that I would like to try wherever I go. It’s served elegantly with a little wooden bucket with seaweed. The mixture of marinated octopus and wasabi steams were good!
Yuzu Orange Salmon Carpaccio ($10.80)
– Thinly sliced fresh Salmon carpaccio with house sesame dressing.
– Some chunky chicken pieces! Crispy and juicey!
“STAMINA” Don in Hot Stone Bowl ($8.80)
– Pork belly stir-fried with homemade chili paste & garlic soy sauce. Served over rice in a sizzling stone bowl
Kyoto Style Shojin Assortiment ($18)
– Shojin (vegan buddhist monk recipe) style 9 kobachi bowls. Kingyo makes only 10 sets a day. Everything was delicately made but unfortunately it was all veggies and cold.
Grape with flowers when we asked for our bill.
Overall, a great dining place to be even with a large party. They also take reservations so no more lines up like Guu. But I personally still prefer Guu.
Their sashimis are definitely recommended especially the Orange Salmon Carpaccio. I saw another group beside us eating ramens, that looked pretty good too. So you can spend a wide range of prices in Kingyo from just $15 a ramen to a bigger cheque to try all the other dishes. Cheers!
