MELT in your MOUTH Sushi!

My mom and I came here for my birthday... honestly, I came here not expecting that much; I used to see it on the way home from work sometimes, and it was just one of the closest sushi places near my house.

I have to say... when I read a review online about "melt-in-the-mouth excellent," all I could think was, "how can any sushi really melt in your mouth?" It's not like cotton candy or ice cream. Is it supposed to do that??

But then I took a bite of the Yoshida roll.

It totally melted in my mouth. In a good way. Four different kinds of raw fish rolled with mouthwatering crab meat. Best fresh sushi roll that's ever brushed my taste buds.

We had the vegetable gyoza (pot stickers) as an appetizer which was pretty good. We also ordered the 2026 roll or something... it was a tempura roll without rice. It was just okay.

Since it was my birthday, I decided to order a drink. I got the sparkling sake. Our waitress said "Oh yes, eet's veddy goo for rady," as she gestured to my mom. Yes, it was pink and flowery, but I enjoyed it!

Speaking of our waitress, she was very nice and patient. It was getting pretty busy. At first we thought it was just a small restaurant, but then we realized a bunch of people were coming in and disappearing somewhere. We discovered another side to the restaurant. It's pretty neat I think.

Only +4, not only because the tempura roll wasn't that great, but because they don't have a lot of variety of unique rolls. I usually look for that when I go to sushi restaurants. However, I will definitely be coming back.

*drool* That Yoshida roll sounds so good!  I totally love me some raw fish :)  I've never had sparkling sake before.  How is it?

Speaking of raw fish melting in your mouth, have you ever had toro?  Now that REALLY melts in your mouth! :)

I LOVE Sushi!  Very nice review, I just had sushi for dinner last night and I know what you mean about it melting in your mouth.  If you have ever had the White Tuna Sashimi, that is one that truly does melt in your mouth and is my favorite piece of fish.  You might enjoy my write up of Morimoto Restaurant in Philadelphia if you enjoy the raw fish side of life :)  Again nice review!

Awesome review! You totally sparked my craving for sushi. Of course, pretty much any mention of sushi sparks my craving. You know what? Every night there's free sushi on our ship! WOOT!
