Occasionally Pie and I order sushi. It tends to be much rarer and much more of a treat than ordering other takeout because it’s that much more expensive. I only first tried sushi a few years ago but I’ve grown to love it. I do find though that I can’t eat a whole big meal of just sushi, and I prefer to have a few pieces followed by some noodles or another hot dish (more like how they actually eat it in Japan). On this occasion I went for the chicken yakisoba. Normally if I’m having Japanese food I’ll go for either katsu curry or ramen, but these yakisoba were definitely a good alternative - kind of like a Japanese version of chow mein (and I’m never going to complain about chow mein).
629. Sea Urchin and 630. Wakame
This restaurant had a pretty good sushi selection so we picked a couple of more unusual items like the sea urchin and wakame nigiris. I knew that sea urchin is considered a real delicacy so I was pretty excited to try it. I’m still not sure whether I liked it or not though. It didn’t taste like fish, really I can’t describe it any more accurately that saying it tasted like sea smell. You know when you go to the beach and there’s that aroma of salt and sand? Yeah, just exactly like that. It was strange, but I would try it again for sure. The wakame is a type of Japanese seaweed. I didn’t find that it tasted of all that much, it was just bland with a slimy texture and I wouldn’t bother ordering it again.
