Great list!
I don't get over to the north Shore very much but now I have an idea where I should try.
Welcome :) Hope it helps.
Sushi Station and Neighbourhood Noodles are not good choices for sushi at all.
Sushi's so subjective though.. It totally depends on the style you like.
Also, i agree that the noodle house doesn't have the best sushi, but it's a nice variety of things for a group that wants to go out and has different tastes. My bf and i go there so i can eat sushi and he can have whatever cuz he hates sushi.
i still don't like those restauraunts! but, just wondering, have you been to sushi and pizza? i'm just really curious what goes on in there...
No, not yet.. I've always been a bit wary of that place. I can't see somewhere that thinks pairing those two things together is a good plan being very good at all. Then again, you never know i guess. You should post here if you do go about it cuz i'm sure there are a lot of people who've wondered.
ooh, and Bella Cucina on lonsdale is a really great place for Italian. They have amazing sauces~
