When I go out for sushi, I want sushi, but often enough I’m going out with someone who isn’t in the mood for a just sushi meal, so close by is Sushi Hanami, which I’ve blogged about before.
If you’re not interested in sushi, they offer a fairly substantial bento box, for a very reasonable price.
For lunch, the bento box was 11$ (plus tax, tip, etc) which seems like a pretty good price. It included Chicken, tempura, a few pieces of nigiri sushi, half a roll, plus soup and a salad. Pretty good, right?
For me though, I stuck with sushi! I had my favorite special scallop rolls (which weren’t as good as they usually are), tobiko, and a “SST roll” (salmon, scallop, tuna) which I found really disappointing. They’ve recently changed up their menu, and perhaps this is a new item – but it’s that “huge roll” style of roll that I don’t really care for. When the chef combines flavors to create something tasty – I want to taste that combination – but with these large rolls I find that I have to pick them apart to eat them. So, I get a bite of one thing, a bite of something else, and then a bite of something else. 😦
I also like it when something has the ingredients – and lists ALL of the ingredients. This roll seemed to be half lettuce – which I had not anticipated – and it’s all that I could really taste in this roll.
Have you tried any of the items on the new menu? What are your favorites? Let us know in the comments below, or read my previous blog post about Sushi Hanami!
