For the appetizer, we had the Dragon Scales: spicy tuna delicately pressed between two Japanese shiso leaves then lightly tempura fried, served with green scallions, and ponzu, and eel sauce. Just a little dip in some soy sauce and cha ching! It's money!
Then we ordered two of our favorite rolls along with one new specialty roll. Our waitress recommended we try the Sweet Pea Roll which was an excellent recommendation. It wasn't like any special roll i've ever had before. It actually had honey on it and i really didn't know if i would like it. Needless to say, it had a unique flavor, but it was awesome! The Sweet Pea Roll is made with crab salad, cucumber & lime, topped with avocado, honey, togarashi and red jalapeno. I'm so glad i've learned to not be afraid of trying new foods! I've learned to love so many different flavors. One in particular is sushi made with lemon and lime in it. Lemon or lime and sushi is an incredibly delicious combination...
That leads me to my other favorite roll that has thin slices of lemon on top. The Rising Sun Roll is a definite winner made with salmon, avocado, and cream cheese topped with spicy crab, green onions, lemon, and eel sauce. I don't know how to describe it, but the contrast between the lemon and the spicy crab is absolutely mouthwatering. If you haven't tried a roll like this, let this compel you to do so.
Last but definitely not least, we devoured the BSCR (Baked scallop california roll) which is a California roll topped with baked scallops, spicy Sumo sauce, tobiko and green onions.
Oooh man! I relished every bite tonight! It blows my mind how eating sushi can be so gratifying! Anyway, if you haven't been to Happy Sumo in awhile, i think it's about time you go.
