I can't believe I ate sushi...
Then they put another one of the appetizers on my plate and I loved it so I took a bite (with chop sticks I might add...to my surprise im pretty good) and after biting in to it I realized...IT WAS RAW! Because I had eaten the first bite though I knew that it was totally good so I kept eating it. Had it been a raw mammal...NO WAY...but being that it was fish, I was ok with it.
Then the meals started arriving and they were all forms of rolls, like California rolls, the difference was that they weren't cooked. I decided to go ahead and try it, what could it hurt right. I took a bite of what they call a BMW...holy crap...it was DELICIOUS!
Listen, I am a chubby girl and would like to consider my self well seasoned in the eating category. How haven't I ever had sushi. Thankfully I am very open minded and willing to take risks and try things I haven't before. This was off the hook...and you would never know without looking that it was raw.
So after trying several other delicious things...and finishing off my California rolls, the evening was coming to an end. The bill came and there were six of us on this one bill...remember having never had sushi at Mikunis before this was all new to me. It was $90 per couple!! Perhaps those of you out there that are ROLLING in the dough see nothing wrong with this...rolling in the dough or not...$90 was a LOT. Especially considering that we didn't have any drinks at the table that would have added in to it.
Will I do it again you ask...of course! Can't wait to take my kids back, it was amazing and I definitely don't want them to get to 33 years old before they realize how awesome sushi from a reputable restaurant is!
I may start my own show...you just never know!
