Hey guys! Has everyone been having a good Easter weekend? How many people get tomorrow off? I don’t. I have class tomorrow morning, just like always. I wish I could have stayed at home for longer, but I’m grateful for the short time I did get to spend with my parents and sister this weekend.
I’m not going to lie though, seeing my family wasn’t the only reason I was glad to go home – I was also excited to go to Ichiban Sushi House, which is my #1 favourite Japanese restaurant!
As a sushi fanatic, you bet I’ve tried many different restaurants, but none have compared to Ichiban. Their fish is incredibly fresh, their prices are reasonable, and the staff are so friendly. My sister and I went there for lunch on Saturday and it was just as good as always!
I got a wakame salad as usual. I know that a salad of seaweed sounds weird, but everyone who I have made try it actually end up liking it. The dressing they use has such a good flavour!
I like that they have a 5 piece order of nigiri sushi under their appetizers. It’s so much cheaper than ordering nigiri sushi a la carte, and this way I get a variety. Although not going to lie, I’d be happy with an order of just 5 pieces of salmon sushi because it’s just so so good!
But I got my salmon fix in a salmon roll. They’re really generous with the fish portions at Ichiban! I get so annoyed when I order a roll and it’s 80% rice with just a tiny sliver of fish – but that’s never the case here. My roll was stuffed full of salmon!
What’s your favourite thing to order when you get sushi?
