Dear Sushi Mon,
If you are a sushi restaurant, shouldn't you actually have....sushi?
The crispy tuna roll was my mistake. I thought it sounded good, but I didn't realize that "crispy" means "fried." But really, it was the sauce that was drenched on it, rendering it disgusting and soggy. I'll let that one slide, because I should have known better.
The California roll was garbage. A friend asked the other day why people even order a California roll, since it's kind of like the peanut butter and jelly of sandwiches. I get it. But when done right, with REAL crab, a normal portion of avocado and cucumber, it's delicious. But fake crab? Seriously?! We live in LA. There is no excuse for imitation crab.
But this one was the real offender: the avocado crunch blob or whatever the hell it's called. Fried avocado with cream cheese, spicy mayonnaise and more of the disgusting overwhelming sweet sauce. It looked like a concoction from a kids' play kitchen. I'm not sure why B ordered it, because he agreed that when I listed the ingredients, it sounded disgusting. However, if you had put them in bite sized portions instead of a huge quarter of an avocado with all the other ingredients slopped all over it, I might have actually tried it. Instead, B took one bite and we didn't touch the rest.
I'm giving this place two stars but only because:
a) the beer/sake happy hour prices were decent
b) I didn't get food poisoning. Yet.
