Tonight was a first for me, we went to a Sushi Bar with all the Law School buddies! Let's start off by saying I do not like seafood in general. I mean I can eat the occasional cooked salmon, but that is about it. When Justin announced that all his Law School buddies had chosen Sushi Land to eat at for our get-together the word TERRIFIED pops into mind first. Justin said we didn't have to go, but I really wanted to see all our friends.
We arrived at Sushi land and the atmosphere was really cool. You sit at a table and the sushi flows by on a conveyor belt that wraps around the whole restaurant. In the middle was all the cooks slicing, rolling, and preparing the sushi. I mean sushi looks really pretty, but the fact that it is fish just freaks me out.
I started out by ordering 3 orders of potstickers or gyoza as Justin tells me is the real name. As I'm waiting for my potstickers Justin starts eating tuna. I decided "Hey!!! I'm at a sushi place I cannot leave without trying some sushi!" So I popped the tuna in my mouth and it actually wasn't that bad. I figured if the tuna was that good I might as well try something else so I ventured into tempura, which was also pretty good. The texture of the shrimp was a little disturbing, but the taste was pretty good--almost like Raising Cane's chicken.
Overall it was a really fun night! We ended up with a big ol' stack of plates around 25! I love all our friends and I have to admit sushi is not that bad, in fact, maybe next time I'll be a little more daring! I would recommend everyone try sushi at least ONCE!
