Not only was I excited to eat Mexican food while in California, but I was also really looking forward to getting some fresh sushi – or at least fresher than what’s in Pennsylvania. Lindsay and I were heading out to Los Angeles for the evening, and we decided to grab some sushi at her favorite place before heading out. Lindsay and her family are regulars at Sushi on Fire, and after eating there I understood why.
Sometimes one roll isn’t even, so we decided to each order our own entree and then order a roll to share. We picked the S.O.F. (Sushi on Fire) to share. This roll was comprised of shrimp tempura, shrimp salad, and avocado wrapped in soy paper. It was topped with baked langostino and spicy, sweet, and creamy sauce, lemon juice and masago. This roll was super tasty and I loved all the sauces on it to heighten the flavor. It was not only spicy but also sweet, and the tempura added a nice crunch.
I got the Sexy (JJ and Alicia) roll for myself. This was a roll without rice with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, crab salad, albacore, mixed greens, mango, and avocado wrapped in soy paper. It was topped with creamy sauce and chili oil. This roll was just as good as the S.O.F. roll, which says a lot considering this roll didn’t even have rice. I thought this roll was very refreshing, light, yet flavorful.
The sushi I had at Sushi on Fire was some of the best sushi I’ve had in a while. The service was good and the restaurant had a hip decor to it. The sushi was priced how most other sushi restaurants price their rolls, and the quality was definitely there in the flavor. Now I’m craving sushi from writing this.
