edamame: sushi and grill

with 9 comments

edamame

I enjoy sushi although I do not eat it very often. So when a friend suggest a sushi bar to me a couple of weeks ago I pretty much shrugged it off. I also felt that with my tight budget I felt I couldn’t afford it. A couple of weeks ago I happen to be driving near the restaurant and remembered her suggestion. It was after the noon rush so I figured it may be a good time to check it out. The name is edamame, which is a large-seeded, green soybean harvested before maturity, and typically prepared by boiling in salted water.  Often served in its pod as a snack with beer or sake, and renowned for its links to health and vitality.

The decor was very interesting using a green color as the theme which gives it a fresh and bright feel. On the ground floor there are a couple of nooks settled back into the walls for privacy. They have two mezzanines located at both the front and rear of the restaurant. You can see the second floor eating area located in the rear of the restaurant. The second floor located in the front is identical. As thier wesbiste says, “… truly unique experience that is certain to satisfy all your dining needs.”

I’ve eaten there twice now all within a week. Thanks, Tracy! My first sushi roll was the Edamame which is made with tuna, salmon, whitefish, cucumber, avocado, masago, radish sprout, unagi sauce, spicy mayo, soy wrap. Loved that spicy mayo sauce. My second visit included another sushi roll called Fire Crunch and is a California roll, topped with: spicy tuna,  unagi sauce, tempura crumbs. And for me they are reasonably priced and will not break my bank. Wonder what I’ll have next week?

  1. Monte, I like the fusion of the sharp lines and the warm green/wood tones making the sushi bar feel modern but not too cold.

    I worked for a Japanese company for 18 years and most of our business dinners featured lots of sushi. I enjoy it but am cautious about where I’ll eat sushi as it needs to be very fresh to be safe. Looks like you found a winning spot here.

    • Yes, the colors just grabbed me when I walked in the door. I am also cautious and really do not eat it that often. I think this is one I could trust.

  2. Interesting decoration. Very modern. I like sushi, but would not go out of my way to get it.

  3. Not being a lover of fish, I would likely turn the color of the chairs if I ate sushi.

    • They also had chicken, pork and beef because they have a grill. You must be like Steve, a meat and tators type of woman.
