THE BITE: I don’t understand what people see in those little sushi rolls.
All that seaweed tastes to me as if I was just wiped out surfing and crashed into the sand, all the while filling my mouth with all the disgusting things found on the beach. It’s a horrible, horrible taste and it amazes me that people will pay for it. Why not just drink from the Bay? It’s cheaper and probably tastes better.
And what’s all this nonsense about “50 percent off?” If it’s 50 percent off all the time, face it, that’s the price dude.
So when I’m in a sushi place, I always check out the kitchen menu. And they always offer the same three categories: negamaki, teriyaki and tempura. C’mon folks. I know Japanese food has more to offer than that!
For today’s Bite, we’re heading into Hayashi Sushi (2901 Ocean Avenue) for the Ginger Pork Teriyaki Lunch Box Combo. For $9.00, you are served your choice of meat with soup or salad and shumai, a California roll and white rice.
