It is that time again for Sushi Sunday.
Although, as I was getting everything ready I realized I am a week early.
Our food was so good, I am not going to wait a week to share with you. Enjoy!
We ate at our local restaurant – Ninja. The food and service was great as usual.
I was excited for some new friends to join us and try new things, and happy they had a good time and enjoyed the new food and experience.
To start things off, The Appetizers
Spicy Edamame with Chili and Garlic
Japanese Potstickers, Pan Fried Pork Dumpings
Egg Rolls with Sweet Dipping Sauce
Beef Negimaki This was a recommendation since they were out of another appetizer. I highly recommend this new treat. Beef marinated in teriyaki, although I am not sure what is is rolled around, it was tender and full of flavor.
Their Kitchen Entrees include miso soup and Ninja’s house salad.
There are always questions or concerns going to a Sushi restaurant when someone can’t eat or doesn’t like Sushi, or even anything fish. I was happy we had some members from our local food group come along even though they were not going to order Sushi.
For those that like seafood, yet not sushi – Seafood Tempura, Scallops, crab, fish and shrimp lightly battered and fried with tempura sauce.
For those that like Teriyaki, they have several options, Chicken, Beef, Salmon, Scallop, and Seafood.
My son ordered this one. Although it was a miss order, he was wanting the Beef Yakisoba, this was on us, not Ninja. It turned out to be a fantastic meal. He ate the entire steak, I think he now has a new favorite menu item to go along with his sushi.
If you like noodles their Yakisoba Dishes are really good.
They offer Vegetable, Chicken, Beef and Seafood.
And now for the Sushi
Spicy Tuna Handroll
Crispy Spicy Tuna
Spicy tuna with masago & eel sauce wrapped in crispy tempura fried seaweed. This was my brave try, raw sushi. I was impressed, it does have a kick of spice, and not any odd texture.
I enjoyed this new sushi adventure.
Shrimp tempura, cucumber and cream cheese, topped with spicy crab, avocado and eel sauce.
My son’s favorite
Eel and avocado, wrapped in soy paper and tempura fried with eel sauce and crunchies on top.
Tempura shrimp, cucumber and cream cheese topped with fish eggs, scallops, crunchies and eel sauce. This was very good, my only downside is is did have imitation crab mixed in with the scallops which I can not eat, but was able to move it off and enjoy.
Lobster Boat Roll
A California Roll topped with succulent pieces of lobster.
My Mom has a new favorite to add to her list of favorites.
Next month join me for a new adventure.
We will be going to Hawaiian Poke Bowl
Always enjoy new food adventures.
You never know what you may find to be a surprising tasty new food joy.
