How was it?
In the midst of the madness that was December of '09, we stumbled into this lovely sushi joint in World Square. I was actually in the mood for Makoto (as I always tend to be these days), but not in the mood to wait, so we decided to walk around and give Sushi Roll a try.
Salmon & avocado is pretty ordinary, but it's also pretty fantastic and we love it. The mini salmon & avocado rolls were tasty little morsels of goodness. The rice was lovely and soft. Off to a good start and I was pleasantly surprised.
The gold plate of salmon sashimi! It's pretty funny that back in the school days I would have never dreamed of touching the stuff, let alone eating it! Thankfully, I've seen the light and really love sashimi now. This one was lovely, light and fresh.
I took this plate off the train simply because it was so very pretty. Both sushi's came wrapped in salmon sashimi. One was topped in salmon roe, whilst the other was topped with chopped up salmon mixed with mayo (I think!). They were both delicious, I love all the different textures when biting into it.
Oh, I just realised that everything we ordered was salmon! We're so very adventurous. Anyway, I really loved the grilled salmon nigiri. The salmon was lightly grilled giving it a lovely smoky flavour. This was my favourite of the night. I wanted to get a few more plates of this, but I thought that would have been a bit excessive, so I refrained.
Some takoyaki balls were ordered. They were crisp on the outside and lovely and gooey inside.
I was in the mood for something warm and filling, so we decided to order the vegetable soup. It was a clear broth with a mixture of vegetables and tofu. It was very flavoursome, and we both thought that it was actually much better than the soup that we tried at Makoto.
A scoop of black sesame ice cream was ordered for dessert. It really had a strong black sesame taste, so I thought maybe they made it there. It was really very tasty and a perfect end to the meal.
A great little sushi joint in the heart of the city. It's one of those places that I've walked by so many times without noticing. The food was great, service was friendly, and I definitely recommend it for a quick and easy meal.
