Spicy tuna roll, delicious and fresh. The yellow plate indicates it's the cheapest price point plate, I forgot how much it is exactly but it's not too bad.
And California Rolls, just for the heck of it too.
Iced tea, I usually get green but this time I got regular. I love their big ice cubes, shaped like top hats. The waitstaff is always very quick with the refills.
Albacore sushi, always a treat.
These little fried seafood balls are always tasty. They're filled with mostly fish, and topped with a bit of roe and chopped green onion. Watch for these right as they go on the conveyor belt, they're great when they're super fresh.
Salmon sushi is always welcome in my book. Whenever Chef Bruce sets a few of these down, they're always gone in a flash.
I felt like getting some Tamago sushi, but Owen wasn't in the mood to have any so I got to have both! Yum.
We ordered this special roll directly from Chef Bruce. It's called a "Tuna Meet Ball" and it's one of Owen's favorites. A salad with tasty dressing is in the middle, and surrounding it, is a few cut roll pieces, the filling is fresh ripe avocado. Perched on top of each avocado roll is a "ball" of spicy tuna. The creaminess of the avocado is really rich but not overpowering, and the generous portion of spicy tuna is a kick in the mouth. This is delicious and we've ordered this a number of times already. A few other rolls we might get on other visits are the (unpictured) "My Roll", or "Your Roll"...funny names, great sushi.
When you're ready to go, Chef Bruce presents his "dessert" - some sort of cut fruit. This time it was plum, I've had orange and white peach other times. It depends on what season it is! This is seriously some good plum, very sweet. Chef Bruce knows how to pick them!
Again, it's so nice that we have a place to go to whenever we're craving sushi, and we can really go all out without worrying too much about how much the bill will end up being (if we go sparingly, we usually end up spending, oh, 20 dollars each maybe, but if we "go all out", it's never more than 30 dollars each). Hooray for Kaiten!
