My niece and I wanted to try the local sushi place Tuna Sushi while I was on my staycation. She's had take-out from there once, but neither of us has ever been in there. I was so shocked to find such a great sushi place in my neighborhood
We couldn't find much wrong with any of the food we ordered. If I could ding them on anything it would be the fried calamari, not because it wasn’t good, but it was in stick form, think fried zucchini sticks, not rings and I prefer the rings.
We ordered the tempura stuffed jalapenos with spicy mayo, fried calamari with spicy mayo, seaweed salad with yamagobo, sesame teriyaki bento and a dragon roll. Needless to say, we ate ourselves silly.
The tempura stuffed jalapenos are generously stuffed with crab meat and cream cheese.
Nice combination of flavors, the crab and cream cheese help temper the spice of the jalapeño.
I like how it’s sliced so you’re not having to deal with it whole.
Like I said the calamari is fine, in fact, it’s really good, I just prefer rings.
I enjoy having seaweed salad along with my meal It’s very refreshing. No, this salad was not spicy like some of them are.
When it comes to the rolls, the spicy eel roll is one of my favorites.
As far as I'm concerned you can put eel and eel sauce on cardboard and it will taste good. This one did not disappoint.
They are not stingy with the bento boxes.
There was plenty of sesame teriyaki chicken, two huge tempura prawns, two huge pieces of tempura zucchini, four pieces of California roll, rice and half an orange that is already cut into sections.
The bento boxes I’ve had in the past had the salad in the box, it was nice to have the salad on the side.
Of course, the salad had lettuce it also had beets, carrots and ginger dressing.
The bento also came with miso soup.
K, the miso soup, hands down, one of the best I’ve had. The dashi was so rich and flavorful, light miso paste, nice little pieces of tofu and pieces of seaweed. I’m going to go back and try the soup again, just to see if it’s consistently that good if so, I’ll be there all the time.
So far it looks like I’m batting a thousand with my restaurant choices on my staycation.
And that’s that!
