Nami Sushi – Calgary, AB
Sushi is one of my favourite foods but on a student budget it is not always possible to treat myself to a sushi dinner every week.
I try to find sushi restaurants that are cheaper in price but do not cut back on freshness or quality as a result. I also try to look at what you are getting for your money. When I go out for sushi dinner and order rolls separately its easy to rack up a bill, especially if you are ordering special rolls. Often lunch specials are a great way to satisfy a sushi craving without breaking the bank.
This is one of the reasons why I have fallen in love with Nami Sushi in Calgary, AB on 14th Street SW just off of 17th avenue. Nami Sushi offers lunch boxes as well as dinner boxes! I also think their special rolls are cheaper compared to other sushi restaurants in the area. Great deals, great prices, but you are not sacrificing flavour, quality, portion sizes, or service.
Here are a few pictures from dinner the other day. We all ordered dinner boxes: Nami box and two deluxe Nami boxes. All dinner boxes come with a fresh salad and miso soup to start, but different boxes have different items in their box. The Nami box comes with gyoza, tempura, California roll, and your choice of chicken, beef, or tofu teriyaki. The deluxe box differs because it has sashimi and nigiri sushi instead of gyoza and the California roll.
Overall, Nami sushi is a great local favourite of mine that is friendly to all budgets – even student budgets – while at the same time providing great quality options.
