Craving Sushi Roku

Sushi Roku

sushi roku 2

Can you ever get tired of Japanese Food? In my case, not really. I feel like there is such a diversity in types of Japanese food, and a variety of restaurants that serve it, so I will almost never turn in down. Over the weekend, I went to Sushi Roku in Old Town Pasadena with by bf, his mom, his sister, his niece and nephew (twins and they are the cutest and most loveable children I know). It’s easy to get in a routine of ordering the same types of dishes I normally get all the time, so always nice to go to dinner with others who will order things you’ve never tried before or know of dishes off the menu that can be prepared if you just ask. I normally start off with edamame, but in addition to this appetizer, I tried the shishito Japanese peppers, which I will definitely order again. I ordered my usual garden salad and miso soup along and we all shared the Crunchy Spicy Tuna Roll, Popcorn Shrimp Tempura, Steamed Shrimp Dim Sum, Yellow Tail Sashimi, Halibut with apricot sauce (off menu, yum!) and Lobster Tempura (not pictured, off menu). I also tried the baked crab handroll and California handroll, and although I ordered the CA handroll with soy paper, the server made up for it by giving us some vegetable tempura on the house. Is it just me or does Japanese food leave you still wanting more after your done eating? Maybe that’s why I crave it so often…

    Yummm, your gorgeous pictures made me crave sushi now, and yes, you should always try a new dish. I think I’ll go attack the edamame I’ve got stashed in the freezer now.

        Apologies, yes, we skipped Man Candy last Saturday, loooong story, but no worries, we’re cooking up some juicy Valentine’s Day eye candy for this weekend. 😉

    Japanese (and all Asian food) is so amazing. I could spend hours in a sushi bar. My life goal: have a job that allows me to liberally visit sushi bars and attend a weekly brunch.

      I usually spend tons of time in Japanese restaurants, Japanese food is one of my favorites. I’ll be rooting on your life goal, sometimes people just don’t know how simple our joys in life can be some times. BTW, awesome gravatar pic 🙂
