California Sushi Wasn't Good OR Bad...

Bahamas Roll

Top - Crunchy Roll
Bottom - Honey Moon Rol

Oklahoma Tulsa Roll

I really don't like when this happens. I go out for lunch, and the food is not great, but it isn't bad either. When I eat out somewhere, I expect fireworks in my mouth, always. Is that too much too ask? I was very excited to try California Sushi, after seeing it highly rated on UrbanSpoon and Yelp. The service was fantastic, but we were the only table in the entire restaurant, so if it wasn't then there would have been something terribly wrong. We ordered 4 rolls, the Bahamas roll, the Crunchy roll, the Honey Moon roll, and the Oklahoma Tulsa roll. The highlight of the meal was definitely the Honey Moon roll, which was our favorite roll out of the four. The spicy tuna that topped it was of great quality, maybe even the best quality tuna I have had. But that was the best thing about the meal, the Bahamas roll was something I could have made at home in about 5 minutes, the Oklahoma Tulsa roll was alright but only came with 5 pieces, definitely not worth the $14.95 we paid for it. The Crunchy roll was good, but nothing I haven't had before. Finally, the Honey Moon roll was delicious, we both fought over this one. It was 2 pieces of deep-fried shrimp, cream cheese and avocado, topped with spicy tuna, along with crunch flakes and multiple sauces. It was very good and worth the $14.95. All in all, we had 2 large rolls, and 2 small rolls and left paying $60(with tip.) I was disappointed in the cost of the rolls, considering they didn't hold a candle to Haruno or even Sushi House, where you can get 2 huge rolls for around $15 AND a free Fuji roll. Oh well, you live and you learn, and I promised to blog about the good, the bad, and the delicious so here you go--the not so good.
