Sushi Te is a Japanese restaurant located in Mission BC, it can be found right at the bottom of the Cedar Valley Connecter at 32423 Lougheed Highway. My wife and I discovered this wonderful restaurant about 11 years ago when we moved to Maple Ridge to raise our family.
Having a very hectic lifestyle we often found it difficult to find time for ourselves, but one of the things we did was to try and have a date night at least once a month. But having a large family and a larger mortgage we tried to keep our dates inexpensive.
Our main solution was to go to a “Cheap Tuesday Movie”, and of course we made it dinner and a movie whenever possible. At that time there was no theatre in our vicinity, but there was one 20 minutes down the road in Mission, and since we are both sushi lovers, once we spotted Sushi Te we had to give it a try.
Well, there was no turning back from that point on this restaurant quickly became a favourite of ours, and now that we actually live in Mission it’s even easier for us to access.
There are many things to like about the Sushi Te experience, but let’s start from the beginning and walk through a typical meal, in fact our last meal there. The front entry is definitely Japanese style with large wooden doors and the light from large globe lamps spilling out through the windows is warm and welcoming. Once inside you are greeted and quickly shown to a seat, given menus and offered tea or whatever other beverage you might like.
Their menu is extensive and they do have some exotic items, but they are typically a bit beyond our normal budget but when we get the chance we do love to experiment. On this particular evening we kept it relatively simple, and went with one of there larger meal offerings (with our own select additions). In this case the “Love Boat“.
Now there is a lot included in this meal for just $32.95: it’s a meal for two so many of the items are double. Ebi Sunomono, Miso Soup, Veggie Tempura, Gyoza, California Roll, Dynamite Roll, 6pce Nigiri Sushi, and Chicken Teriyaki.
Over and above this we ordered the Mission Fever Roll $10.95, which is comprised of crab meat, cucumber, avocado, and top salmon. It is one of their very popular specialty rolls. We also added Kappa Maki, and Spicy Scallop Roll.
The food itself is incredibly tasty and ever so fresh, but sushi is all about presentation, and the chefs behind the counter excel in their creative expression. Service is fast and sincere, and whether you are in a hurry, or taking your time they accommodate your schedule.
So you can get a better idea of pricing I am including a scan of their takeout menu so you can look it over and decide if their pricing is right, but remember the takeout menu only includes a portion of what they can actually do!
Since they’ve been in business for a long time now, they have also established their own WWW presence, so here’s a link to their website, it will give you a better sense of what they can actually do.
