Sooo my visit with the family, we ordered Party Tray C ($37.00), which came with sushi and rolls. Lets talk about the rolls first! =)
There was Red Roll (left), which is pretty much chopped scallop roll with spicy tuna on top. It was VERY SPICY. So I didn't have any. Looked like a bit too much rice though. Then flanking the other side was a Mangodaise Roll. The mango was SO SOUR. It looked pretty though. And in the middle was a California Roll and Chopped Scallop Roll. Nothing special about these, chopped scallop was falling apart though ><" And on the top and bottom were parts of the Dynamite Roll. This one was done better than last time, at least the shrimps weren't over-fried.
Onto the nigiri sushi! There was Salmon, Tuna, Ebi, Chopped Scallop, and Hokkigai. Again, they were large pieces and I like how they had lemons between the salmon, I love lemons on my salmon haha!
The BBQ Salmon Gama ($3.95) was a pleasant surprise. For that price, I expected a tiny piece of salmon, but instead, it came on a sizzling plate, and there were two pieces! My parents had it, and they really liked it. It was cooked really well and was very fresh. Although the gama part was a bit of a lie, since it wasn't really the cheek part =P
Next visit! My camera somehow goofed up and I couldn't take pics ='( So all these are photo credits to my friend, AL! Thank goodness =D
Service was definitely lacking this time, I sat down for 10 minutes and had to ASK for the tea x.x They also swapped the menu on us! Prices were different, so most of the items were about $0.50 more expensive. Not really that big of a deal, but just weird =S
I did get a Tako Yaki in the end even though it was $4.30 this time. SW burned herself on it, and after laughing at her, I did the same thing ==; At least it proved it was fresh? haha
