Tummy Chronicles: Sushi Bar Zipang

Overall Restaurant Rating: ♥♥♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥

So another long week of work, and after a long week and a long Saturday workday the best thing to do is EAT! And the manfriend was awesome enough to call and make a reservation for 7:00pm, because this little restaurant seriously gets pack. And I have heard numerous praises on how awesome and fresh the sushi is here, and also hearing from the manfriend that his coworkers also enjoy the food there, I was sold.

And as we walked up to the outside somehow it was not what I was expecting from the name of the restaurant, in my head I was thinking more modern, but it was super adorable and traditional. I was pumped for sushi! And like previous posts of mine, I have probably let you know that I really enjoy different and interesting rolls, well this was sure a disappointment, without thinking babe ordered the Zipang roll and I ordered the House Special Roll, and by the time the rolls came out, they looked almost identical, they tasted almost identical, but they had 1,2,3,4..Four different types of seafood in them, it was quite disappointing, the rolls were not rolled very neatly, they crumbled to the touch, and our Zipang roll was hardly even cut up into pieces. The seafood was delicious though, fresh and chunky. Hehe.

Bonita Flake and Deep Fried Tofu
♥♥♥♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ Only 2pcs, but none the less yummy.

Special Scallop (Scallop, Flying Fish Roe, Mayo)
♥♥♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ I didn’t like the Mayo, I thought every sushi place used the same brand of mayo, but for some reason this mayo was kind of tasteless.
Toro (Belly of Tuna)
?????/♥♥♥♥♥ Manfriend’s Toro, I didn’t even touch it. Haha
Shake (Salmon)
♥♥♥♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ Fresh.
Uzura Tamago (Quail Egg) on Masago (Capelin Roe)
♥♥♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ The Masago was sort of bitter. Weird.
Maguro (White Tuna)
♥♥♥♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ Super fresh.
Smoked Salmon
♥♥♥♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ Super super fresh. Haha they were all the same level of freshness.
Spicy Tuna Roll
(Tuna, Green Onion, Spicy Sauce, Lettuce) ♥♥♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥
Zipang Roll (Tuna, Crab Meat, Sweetened Omelet, Flying Fish Roe, Avocado, Lettuce, Capelin Roe) 8pcs
♥♡♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ The Masago also mad this whole roll bitter here and there, not impressed with how poorly it was rolled. Wasn’t even cut into pieces. The Sweeten Omelet was also dry not moist, hence deducting a ♥.
House Special Roll (Tuna, Salmon, Prawn, Avocado, Capelin Roe, Lettuce) 4pcs
♥♥♡♡♡/♥♥♥♥♥ Fell apart too fast, and tasted almost identical to the Zipang roll even with the different seafood in it.
