Red Dragon – essentially tempura’s aeel and avocado on top of a cali roll
Crush Roll – basically a philly roll with a twist – rearranged with cali and asparagus and topped w. mayo.
Whenever I “order” Unagi, its the first thing I try – even before mixing my soya sauce. One of my pet peeves is cold coagulated eel fat so the it’s almost a litmus test to see how much effort a restaurant us willing to put into one piece of sushi.
This one was … Interesting lol! First off the eel to rice ratio was wrong and so was the rice. Not horribly so, just noticeably so. The eel had a char-broiled look to it that was fresh but the temperature was slightly warm, border-lining room temp.
It was the same for the tempura’d eel …
For the rest of the nigiri – I’ll have to quote Carn.H
Shrimp: not bad
Hamachi: plastic-ky tasting (think nestle water)
Sock-eye Salmon: avg/alright
Tuna: weird taste… self taught oddness
You can really tell the quality of rice with the nigiri because a large chunk of bland ever so slightly hard rice really stands out in this situation.
If you wanna keep your man distracted, there’s two big screens located on one side of the wall as well LOL!
In terms of service, it was pretty good for the most part… we were checked upon quite often and she refilled our water without asking. The downfall was when she packed up our sushi. Rather than using two hands – one for food and one for dirty dishes, she decided to pile on all the dirty dishes and used paper onto the same platter dish that the sushi was served on – WITH the leftover sushi. How smart is that? Then to top it off, she flops my social shopper coupon right on top of my food. YUM!
likelihood of revisiting: 33% if we’re in a drinking mood
culinary mindset: they named it a lounge for a reason lol~
