California Sushi Saturday!
My moms friend Marianne wanted to take us out for lunch for coordinating her last Altzheimer Benefit concert, so my mom suggested California Sushi.
Last time I went here was with Derek during my horrible tobiko incident - so I stayed clear of Tobiko this time. I started off with Oshitashi $3.50 (Spinach Salad with Ponzu Sauce). I was thinking of going for Gomae, but decided I should try something I've never had. It was fresh, and the green onions balanced it out. I've actually been making a point to eat spinach everyday for the past week, and it's something I don't think I could ever get tired of, as there are so many fun ways to use it.
My moms friend Marianne ordered the Gomae for $3.25 (Spinach Salad with Sesame Paste).
My mom ordered the Edamame for $2.95, which was also cooked perfect - although I think they used regular table salt and not the rock sea salt crystals.
I ordered the Ebi Sunomono $3.25. I hadn't had this dish in a while, and something about all the ingredients together I just love.
I also ordered my go-to dish - the Double Spicy Tuna Roll for $3.95. I don't think I could ever get tired of this roll.
Marianne ordered the Prawn & Yam tempura for $7.50. She said it was really lightly firned and not oily. I also learned that 7-up is used in making tempura batter.
Marianne also ordered the Spicy Agedashi Tofu dish for $3.50. This looked really good, and I want to try this next time. The spicy sauce was at the bottom of the bowl, that the tofu could be dipped into.
My mom went with her typical rolls - Avocade Roll $2.95 & Snoked Salmon Cream Cheese Roll without the crabmeat for $3.95. Wonderful lunch to celebrate the hard work put into the charity event.
Ps - Barrington Levy is coming to town this monday! Sadly I doubt I will be there, but I will be at a reggae concert next saturday!
