The Soaring Crane in Enfield, with its bright, pastel colours and eye-catching façade, has been a go-to spot for sushi lovers in East Hants since February 2021. “Every once and a while, we have to stop and think to ourselves, ‘wow look at what we’ve created,” Ashley Scott, co-founder/owner of Soaring Crane Sushi, says. “It’s just hard to believe all of this was done in less than a year.” Scott operates the location with her fiancé Liam Crane. Scott says they’ve been doing whatever they can to help other local businesses since they began. “We always wanted to help support our community, just like they supported us when we first opened,” Crane adds. The couple also isn’t afraid of hiding their love for local product and how it impacts what they serve. “We aren’t Japanese and we don’t know much about the culture but we wanted to bring a local twist to the small part we did,” Crane says. “We try to use as many local products as we can to have the best and freshest sushi we can make.” Since opening, they have added plenty of new menu items, including Dill Pickle Rolls and Pork Rinds. The couple is also excited to display the renovations to their restaurant, which will allow customers to dine inside. “We’re also looking forward to the possibility to bringing more local food trucks together to create a little food court that will help bring more people out to support us and others who are on the path,” Crane said. “The community has been more supportive than we could have ever imagined,” Scott says. “We love seeing our returning customers because it gives us the confidence to try new things.” The Soaring Crane is open Thursday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. More information can be found at soaringcranesushi.ca.
