Noticed a few items I've never tried before, so I was adventurous (as always). RL was here just last night, so he ordered something he enjoyed, which was the Tuna Gomae ($4.50). It was very average, nothing super special about it besides the tuna sashimi in it, which was fresh. Interesting combo.

He also ordered a Smoked Salmon Garlic Roll ($4.50), which I considered ordering too =D So happy I got to try. Garlic was deep fried and placed on top of the roll, crunchy and very garlic-y. I didn't taste much of the shrimp, but the avocado was delicious.

Of course, I ordered Takoyaki ($3.95), which was quite fresh and very crispy. I loved it, wished there was a bit more tako in it and bonito shavings on it.

Also got nigiri, Salmon ($1.20) and Chopped Scallop ($1.35). Both were fairly fresh, but I found the chopped scallop too chopped up. Portion size was large, typical for a restaurant like this.

I also ordered a Yellow Town Roll ($3.95) because of its name. I think this roll is really good for the summer because it was so refreshing. The topping was a mixture of onions, smoked salmon, mayo, and something else that was crunchy (coudn't figure it out). Either way, it was cold and complimented the whole roll well. Lots of avocado in the actual roll.

Satisfied with my experience, I will be back soon to try out more of their stuff! =)
