Sushi Fail

     Today was errand day, and my last spot was Marshalls, you know basically a discount, marked down merchandise store that resembles  a high end swap meet. Yeah, that place. ANYWAY, next to Marshalls, is this brand new Sushi restaurant that I thought I'd give a whirl. Here in LA, "SUSHI"restaurant's are ubiquitous and not at all a big deal, so I had the mind set of " try one Sushi restaurant, you've tried them all".
First off, I'm not a big sushi buff at all, I only eat two kinds of sushi rolls : The California and Shrimp Tempura Roll. Yes they are both cooked, therefore to lump these rolls into the "SUSHI" term or description is an understatement....SO, I order the Shrimp Tempura Roll, expecting it to look like this:

     Looks yummy right? Well, I got home, opened the Styrofoam lid and got this:

WTF?!?!?! Shrimp Tempura with some type of yellow mayo on it? This was $6?? Well, it turns out I ordered a ROCK Shrimp Tempura Roll, which I found out, is a Spicy Tuna (raw) roll with shrimp tempura covered with a sort of tangy mayo, placed on top. I don't think that's seaweed around it either. Here's a way better pic of another version of a  Rock Shrimp Tempura sushi roll that I "googled":
     Needless to say, it was OK, (after I scraped some of that white shitty mayo off) but I had already eaten it before I found out it was raw tuna, but it wasn't bad, but I will definitely not order again.


  1. aww, i feel your pain. i, too, love the shrimp tempura roll. but, i also love the spicy tuna roll. you should give it a try... next time you're at a more reputable sushi establishment ;)

  2. ohhhh i would have been tight...i think i would have gotten up to go back lol.
    i love me some sushi. my guilty pleasure.
