Trending on Restaurant Reviews: Sushi Rolls That Really Rock

Untitled 2It’s National Sushi Day! How fitting that this cuisine has its own day as it has become something of a staple in the diets of most American foodies. It can straddle both sides of the nutritional fence — clean and green (hand rolls packed with veggies and brown rice) or fatty and decadent (Hello, foie gras, mayo, and uni!), meaning there’s something for all comers. We’re celebrating the day by ordering sushi, taking inspiration from what diners are saying about the inventive and delightful sushi rolls that have them raving in recent restaurant reviews. 

Blowfish Sushi, San Francisco, California: “The food was divine. We ordered a vegetarian roll that was served warm and was outstanding. The shishito peppers melt in your mouth, and they are topped with thin sliced caramelized leeks! I have never tasted leeks in a better form.”

 The Bluefish-Greenville Ave., Dallas, Texas: “We drive from OKC to eat dinner at Blue Fish. The service is always the best and we’ve never had a roll there that we didn’t like. Our favorite is the rainforest.”

Hapa Sushi Grill and Sake Bar Lodo, Denver, Colorado: “We loved the multiple orgasm roll and the rock ‘n roll spicy shrimp roll!”

Insignia Prime Steak & Sushi, Smithtown, New York: “You *have* to order some type of special sushi; the insignia roll is a favorite!”

Irori Sushi, Marina Del Ray, California: “The blue crab and salmon roll is the best sushi roll I have ever tasted!”

Katsuya Hollywood SBE, Los Angeles, California: “I had blue fin sashimi, and a version of a spicy California roll with seared ahi on top; my daughter had a roll with shrimp on top — all totally amazing! As a fan of Food Network, you always hear them talk about how in a really good dish, you can taste all the elements without anything overpowering it — this was the first time I have ever had that experience (and I just turned 50!).”

The Olde Pink House Restaurant, Savannah, Georgia: “I tried southern sushi, which was a fried roll filled with shrimp and grits…brilliant.”

PassionFish, Reston, Virginia: “They make top-notch sushi rolls. Their spider soft-shell crab roll is the best I’ve had anywhere.”

Sky Thai Sushi, Fort Lauderdale, Florida: “The sushi was awesome. Had the rice paper spicy tuna — the bomb. Partner had the lobster roll. What a presentation and taste.”

Sono Japanese Restaurant, Raleigh, North Carolina: “Excellent sushi — best I’ve had in the Triangle – with both classical approaches as well as fusion (e.g. peppered tuna roll — goat cheese and cracked pepper complement tuna quite well!). I haven’t had all of the fusion rolls — but the peppered tuna and VIP are both fantastic (VIP featuring cilantro, in addition to conventional flavors.).”

* Sushi Blue, Park City, Utah: “The krusty krab roll was to die for; I am still dreaming about it! ”

Sushisamba, Coral Gables, Florida: “We really go here for one main item…the ezo roll. Its delectable taste and delicate composition just melt in your mouth.”

* Tomo, Atlanta, Georgia: ” The sushi is spectacular! The yellowtail roll with Gorgonzola sauce is memorable.”
