We happened to be walking past SUN WITH MOON on a lazy weekday morning, and the cafe had just opened for business. Seeing as how it was tucked away at a quiet corner on the third level of Wheelock, we thought we would settle there for a quiet afternoon brunch. But no sooner were we led to our seats than groups of customers started streaming in by the dozen.
The mains were pretty pricey, so we only had sushi and a dessert. Even so, we were quite impressed by the standard of the food. The Spicy Aburi Salmon Roll was more than we expected it would be. The sliver of flame-seared salmon that draped the sushi was nothing short of delightful, melting in the mouth like butter, and the tiny pearls of roe that topped each sushi added a burst of sweet, briny flavour. This, we found much better than the Salmon Pink Dragon Roll, which was almost exactly the same except that the salmon was raw and not seared. The Nixon Roll, a serving of unagi sushi, was just as good, if not better. We liked that the eel came in huge slabs and, like the salmon items, gave that melt-in-the-mouth sensation. The sauce, thankfully, wasn't overwhelming and needn't be, since the eel was fresh.
Our order of their Hokkaido Milk Crepe, however, did not even meet expectation. At seven or so dollars, it came in a measly portion, like at least half of what it should have been given what we were paying. And it didn't taste all that either; there wasn't much cream in between layers, and the taste that dominated the palate with every spoonful was of the chocolate sauce or syrup that accompanied the crepe. And because there wasn't much cream to go with, some bites were just sauce and plain crepe.
So, while I intend to pay the cafe a second visit, I think I'm going to stay away from their subpar desserts.
