First Spot Prawn Adventure in Vancouver: Blue Water

We went to Blue Water Cafe  Fri night – sat at the Bar. They only had 3 spot
prawns left, which were good.  (Sashimi style) We got a poached spot prawn salad, the
prawns were a bit mealy and overcooked. Oysters (local only) were
fabulous. Yoshi, their renowned sushi chef, did a couple of sashimi items for us, some were off
menu. The local sockeye salmon, sable, and halibut was all amazing. So
yes, we were able to achieve our goal of getting locally-sourced
excellent sashimi. We also ordered their famous scallop/red sea urchin
mousse which was a fun and tasty dish.

All in all, a fantastic experience, but we were not blown away by the spot prawns vs the Santa Barbara Spot Prawns or the Ama Ebi we get at the top Sushi restaurants in LA.  But it is early, and they gave us the bottom of the barrel. I am sure the best is yet to come
