for some reason I think this place is nicknamed ‘midnight sushi’. I had inari (as usual), tuna rolls, and california rolls. it was all really good, but expensive. there was orange powdery stuff on the california rolls, not sure what it was but i didn’t mind it. I put more wasabi on my sushi this time. think i’m starting to take a liking to it.
they have an awesome asian sit on floor styled room that i want to eat in someday. it looks really fun for a group of peoples.
once again, not as good as surin west. 6 years ago
i had the inari and cucumber rolls. they are excellent and the wasabi was kickin’! i finished off all of my wasabi on my dish this time, quite an accomplishment i would say!
it was very tasty, but pricey. and i still think surin west beats out sakura in our book of favorites here in birmingham. 6 years ago
ventured over to kobe for some more sushi adventure with Stephanie. again, we had a great time! i really liked the interior design of this restaurant, it’s very fitting. there was a coy pond and a little bridge and lots of neat little touches that put me in a sushi mood. the food was really good here, we ordered the usual stuff and also tried out some cucumber rolls. All of the food was good, i liked the cucumber rolls too. my stomach did get a little odd afterwards, but nothing crazy. i was fine. i had a lot more fish this time than i usually do. again, it was really good, but more expensive and not quite as good as Surin West. 6 years ago
Went to Sekisui to celebrate Stephanie’s promotion to Scientist II. I quickly noticed a few things different at this restaurant. We were given no standard eating utensils, only chopsticks, yay. Also, we were given a hot towel to wipe our hands off before the meal. That was neat. We decided to try some tempura first. The broccoli was the best, followed by the mushroom, then the squirmy soft tofu. I tried some tuna, inari, and vegetable rolls. stephanie had a bunch of inari and vegetable rolls, and tons of wasabi. it wasn’t as strong here. It was all really good but not as good as Surin West. it was a bit more expensive too. 6 years ago
joshy and i tried out Kobe’s sushi bar. it was really good, but pricey. and joshy felt a little queasy after eating a bunch of the nigiri and rolls with tuna (i on the other hand, dont get queasy bc i always get vegan sushi because i’m vegetarian). the wasabi was pretty potent though! but again, our favorite so far is still Surin West in 5 pts. 6 years ago
first restaurant= surin west in 5 pts. this is where josh tried it for the first with me on a lovely easter sunday.
last night, as an excuse to celebrate my recent promotion, we went out to get sushi and ben&jerry’s ice cream. we were going to pick some up at the whole foods market, but we were disappointed that they didnt have anything, particularly ingari, with tofu on the menu. so we went to Sekisui in vestavia hills. it was recommended by my friend at work. it was good, but different. think we prefer surin west better. i had tempura for the first time! i loved the tempura with broccoli and mushrooms, but the tempura made with tofu, was made with softer tofu and it wasnt as good as if it were made with extra firm tofu. a little weird. the fried broccoli was so good though. very interesting!!
i like that josh likes the inari and other sushi with tofu and vegetables. i think that’s neato. 6 years ago
