August 30, 2013 Wasabi
We had to run an errand at the mall after work, so we decided to grab a quick bite at Wasabi, located in the new section of the mall, across the way from Lord and Taylor. All the plates are made by the chef and then put on a conveyor belt that loops around the restaurant. All dishes are priced by the color plate they are on. Yellow is $2.50, orange is $3.00, red is $3.50, blue is $4.00 and purple is $5.00.
Above is the shrimp tempura, unlike any other shrimp tempura sushi I’ve ever had before. They had crunchy little rice crispy like pieces on the outside. I had to admit that I was worried about the freshness of the sushi. The shrimp tempura was the first one I tried and it was a little soggy for my taste – like it had been going around one too many times. All the other rolls that we had were very fresh.
