After an afternoon filled with errands I found myself in Midtown with a serious craving for sushi. I did a quick check on Yelp and saw great reviews for Sushiya just a block away. I entered the narrow restaurant and got a single spot at the sushi bar in back.
The place was absolutely packed with a mix of businessmen and tourists. I was happy to see so many people enjoying their food since the cartoon menu didn't exactly fill me with confidence...
...but after looking at all of the pictures I found them so quirky and cute I decided to order one of the crazy rolls just because of them. They started me off with a simple salad of iceberg lettuce and carrot dressing.
Then it was onto the main event a Sunny Side roll made of Spicy Tuna & Yellowtail with asparagus and tobiko. There were so many shades of pink on my plate a more apt name would have been "Pretty in Pink".
The roll was split right down the middle...one side tuna one side yellowtail...both with fresh asparagus in the middle and a spicy creamy mayo on top.
This roll wasn't anything mind blowing (this is not Yasuda after all) but I really enjoyed the different textures at play and the crunchy asparagus made it a bit more satisfying than just a regular roll. Plus I was in and out in under 20 minutes and for less than $20. In Midtown that's a score for a sit down meal. I'll be back again to check out the rest of the menu that's for sure.
