Happy Birthday Blowfish On Bay

Blowfish, the sleek and sexy sushi restaurant and sake bar in the heart of Toronto's Financial District turned one this week and to celebrate we indulged in these bit-size glory creations.

Pull up a chair and we hope you are really hungry because the Blowfish menu is one of the most diverse we've seen - flawless maki, scrumptious sushi rolls and hot & cold sharing plates. Executive Chef G.Q. Pan seamlessly merges Japanese and Pan-Pacific styles with European and North American flavours.

Orange & black makimono roll: salmon, mango, avocado, orange & black tobiko, yuzu drizzle. $13

The almond encrusted calamari served with wasabi dijon kewpie is flash fried which adds an incredible crunch to this twist on a classic. $10

Binnaga–maguro ceviche diced albacore, avocado, cucumber, romaine, tomato and pine nuts, tossed in a combination of jalapeno, yuzu and served on a crispy taro chip. $18

Seared miso lemongrass duck breast cooked to a medium rare and served with welsh onion, oyster and shimijii mushroom. $26

And dessert to finish it off of course! On the left we have the yuzu meringue tart with fresh blueberry compote $11 and on the right, a flourless chocolate torte with coconut mousse and spiced orange Chantilly $11.

Make sure you leave plenty of room for their cocktails and saketinis. This spiked lemonade made with thyme is oh my yum!
