This weekend turned out to be an adventure in sushi. We went to Shogun Sushi Bar, and had six different sushi rolls. I purposefully ordered things I had never had before. I enjoyed them all, though I did develop a few favorites.
Big Mouth Roll: Tempura battered and fried. Has flying fish roe, eel, shrimp, tuna , avocado and spicy mayo sauce. These live up to the name. I had to cut each one into four pieces to be able to eat it. They were huge!
Indian Roll: Tempura asparagus with cream cheese and other vegetables. Pretty good, but the cream cheese was more sour than I expected, and I often order cream cheese rolls.
Maguro Roll: Tuna, crab, cucumber, and other vegetables.
Headache Roll: Snapper, masago, green onion, other vegetables, battered and fried with sauce on top. This thing looked freaky, but it was delicious.
Caterpillar Roll: Eel, avocado, crab salad with sauces. I loved this one.
TNT Roll: spicy shrimp, spicy crab, spicy tuna, masago, tempura fried and drizzled with spicy mayo and sriracha. Delicious! I could have eaten these all day.
I’m probably missing some of the ingredients there, but I’m working off memory. I know some of them also had shredded seaweed, three kinds of roe, and more. I couldn’t keep up with all the ingredients! it was wonderful though to experience all of the variety and those new things I’d never had before, like roe and snapper. sushi is always such an experience, I wish it didn’t cost so much to go to places like Shogun. I have a feeling the sushi we get at Kroger is just never going to be the same for me after tasting these!
