Not long ago I met up with an online blind date downtown – and sushi was on the menu! Since I am rarely downtown during the day anymore, I selected Sushi & Co – which specializes in an after-work and lunchtime crowd…they are never open on Sundays when I’m in the area.
I ordered a Rocky Mountain Roll… but it was NOT what I expected. The Rocky Mountain roll is supposed to have Prawn Tempura, cucumber and cream cheese with baby scallop tempura and masago… topped with lemon sauce, sweet sauce, and tobiko. As you can see from the photo, it’s not at all what I got.
What I ended up getting is a prawn tempura, with cucumber, spicy crab, and there was even a jalapeno in there, all topped with salmon! It came with spicy sauce, which I totally didn’t need because this was WAY too spicy. Reading their menu, I’m not even sure what I DID get – but definitely not what I ordered. (Super disappointed.. I ended up not eating it all because it was WAY too hot for me.)
I was a bit surprised that while my sashimi (below) came with ginger and wasabi – the sushi roll didn’t.
I also ordered tuna and salmon sashimi which was WAY better and more as anticipated. I was a bit bummed that the tuna was quite small in comparison to the salmon, and there was more salmon than tuna…. (since tuna is what I like better right now..)
They also included a miso soup, which I didn’t anticipate. Unfortunately we didn’t eat right away so when I got to the soup… it was already cold… (so I didn’t eat it either).
