Y’all, I did not feel like cooking the other night. After a long flight from South Korea, and 5PM traffic from the airport, the last thing we wanted was to spend any time in the kitchen. A quick search for sushi on our route home (from the passenger seat of course) turned up this little place. The menu is extensive. Everyone should be able to find something including kids. The size and style of the rolls are more western so two rolls was enough for each of us. I always order a spicy roll option when trying a new sushi place. This time I ordered the dynamite roll. Its spice wasn’t over powering or up front. The heat caught up slowly through two or three pieces which was surprising as most places tend to over do the spicy element. Fresh ingredients, very friendly team, easy to get to are all other reasons you should check out this place the next time you don’t feel like cooking.

You can also sit in high western style tables or in floor level Japanese seats with a well so you don’t have to sit cross legged the whole time.
