MAUMI SUSHI BAR VANCOUVER | RESERVATION ONLY OMAKASE MENU

MAUMI SUSHI VANCOUVER JAPANESE OMAKASE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Sushi Bar Maumi is a by reservation only Japanese restaurant in the West End neighbourhood of Vancouver – particularly between Bute and Davie. Menu focuses on traditional nigiri sushi. The omakase menu consists of a course of 11 pieces of sushi for $75 per person that is served with Ara miso soup made with grilled fish bone broth. If you are still hungry – it is possible to order by pieces (Okonomi) from their daily fresh sheet. There are two seatings: 6pm and 7:45pm.

 

 

This tiny restaurants has only 10 seats and you must call in person to make an reservation. It is an adult only. It is not baby friendly. In fact is does not admit children under 18 years old. Also they do not serve rolls. And they do not serve alcohol. They do not have a liquor licence.

 

There are four different homemade sauces on the fish:

  • Nikiri Shoyu (strong): bonito flakes, dried kelp, soy sauce, mirin and sake
  • Irizake: sake, umeboshi pickled plum, bonito flakes, kelp
  • Nikiri Shoyu Tsume (regular): BBQ conger head, sake, soy sauce, sugar, bonito flakes
  • Mojio: Hondawara, kelp, sea salt

Sushi Bar Maumi is operated by Maumi Ozaki (previouslly trained at Fuji Sushi in Coquitlam) and his wife. A two person operation much similar to Sushi Hachi. When we arrived, we quietly greeted and seated behind the bar.

The humble restaurant is very quiet. In fact, the restaurant is so strict, we felt like we couldn’t even chat. Once everyone was seated, the Chef presented us with a few rules – one of which, if you can’t finish your rice, let him know so he can make you smaller portions.

The chef studiously studies his handwritten notes in front of him and begins pulling out the fish from the refrigerators underneath the bar. Slicing and serving us nigiri pieces one by one. Whispering the names.

Overall our we thought Sushi Bar Maumi warranted a solid “good” but it didn’t blow our minds. Although fresh (imported from Japan few times a week), we didn’t think there was a great progression of mild to bold tasting flavours. My rice was uncharacteristically a touch too warm. The prices are steep without being orgasmic. Truly a disappointment given all the recommendations from everyone.

 

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese culinary experience perhaps venturing to Masayoshi, Testsu Sushi or even the Raw Bar at Fairmont Pacific Rim.
