I’ve used Towa sushi (occasionally mis-calling it Tawa) as an example a few times before in Happy Sushi Belly, but I have yet to actually review it here in the blog. I use it often as an example of annoyingly huge rolls. You know the ones… they look so amazing, but then when you go to eat them… you either have to take them apart (which in my opinion kind of defeats the point of blending all of those flavours together) or make a huge mess trying to bite into them.
However, Towa offers the kind of roll that one of my friends really likes, (pictured above) which doesn’t include any raw fish or nori (seaweed). That meant that on a recent get-together, we headed to Towa!
While one friend placed an order of the huge roll above and an order of tempura, our other friend went for tempura as well, and a plate including an assortment of sushi below. Both of them have read Happy Sushi Belly, so were nice enough to indulge me as I took a few photos…
Instead of those huge rolls, I stuck with a plate of sashimi. This is the Deluxe Sashimi Assortment, for $26. The menu only says that it is an ‘assortment’ of the ‘chef’s choice’ and not how many pieces or what you can expect, but it was a pretty nice assortment of expected fish. I normally would also order an Ikura, but I don’t like the way they prepare it at Towa.
What are your thoughts on those huge rolls like they serve at Towa? Let us know in the comments below!
