A quick question of Chirashi

Did anyone come across any Chirashi with "Thick Cut" of different types of fish - like the picture from a sushi place in SF, USA ?

sushi house in richmond.

samurai probably has chirashi similar in size to the picture but it'll probably taste like an asshole.

Sushi Nanaimo has a very good Chirashi (18 pieces of Sashimi). It's thick cut.

well since theres disccusion about chirashi now, ill chime in on some places ive had chirashi at.

sushi house - decent quality and very good value considering size to price point.

sushi hachi - pricing is decent for a place like sushi hachi but size is a bit underwhelming. fish is good in quality but cut quite thinly.

sakura sushi - box that it comes in is nice and selection is quite varied. quality is there (except for the ikura which tends to be a bit droopy and dry). interestingly, the ebi served in the box is not amaebi but botan-ebi which is a nice touch.

maruwa - my experience is with the bara-chirashi. taste is decent but the portion size is very very small. you will leave hungry.

takeya - i've only ever had the mini chirashi that comes along side the noodle set. quality is quite good and portion is generous considering the udon + kakiage that comes along with it.

ichiro - the chirashi lunch set is a steal. not only is the chirashi presented beautifuly, it is quite varied in the selection of fish along with being very fresh. everytime i've gone, they've served suzuki which is a nice touch. along with that, you get a side hot soba/udon on the side which is excellent. the soba specifically, tastes very authentic.

gyo-o - i haven't been back in a year or 2 but from past experience, the kaisen-don is excellent. nicely cut and fresh. portion size is just about right.

tokyo joe - oversized slabs of tuna and salmon and everything else didn't look too appetizing. freshness was questionable and presentation was very messy and unappealing.

zero one sushi - quality of fish is excellent (hamachi from nagasaki, hotate from hokkaido) but i hate eating out of those damn styrofoam bowls.

tenhachi (now relocated and renamed aotoya blue door) - did not have chirashi here but the hon-maguro don (tekka don). it was a seasonal special but has to be the best tekka don i've had in vancouver. very fresh and portion size was right for the price.

The Chirashi at Sushi Paradise is really good
for $13 you get ton of Sashimi, and the quality of Sushi rice is good too
for $1 more, he'll give you brown rice, which is better for you
