Raku: Sushi with the girls

Over the last 3-4 years, I've had 3 blind dates at Raku. The dates did not go too well, and I've formed a negative association with this restaurant. Then Anna S. and Wendy took me there for dinner for my last birthday, and a few months ago I went there for dinner with Lisa. Both experiences gave me new and happier memories of this place.

For President's day I met with Radha, Theresa and Adrienne for sushi and jewelry making. The service at Raku was attentive, the atmosphere casual and fun. All of us ordered sushi. I had salmon & avocado roll and a crunchy spicy tuna roll (something my friend Jenn introduced me to a while back). The sushi was good!



Radha was nice enough to let me take a photograph of her shrimp tempura roll: what awesome presentation!



What are your favorite sushi rolls?

How come you haven't taken me to Raku? Seriously! My favorite roll is volcano roll from a Dallas restaurant - no other place can match it. It's a california roll topped with scallops and spicy mayonnaise and broiled. A friend described it as an orgasm in the mouth. Enough said.

Great pictures!
I love sushis and I've learned to make them. After a few tries they are now pretty good... My favourites among all: salmon sushis and cream cheese rolls!

Eating sushi has become a fascination in America, so if people make a fuss over immigrants like Chinese people so why everyone likes to eat sushi and it's one of the most exuberant and eccentric food?
