I have written before that my family is sushi crazy.  I would say that the kids are more savvy than my husband and I about selecting the perfect sushi taste combinations.  Daughter # 2 had to work on the eve and day of her birthday and I was feeling a bit sorry for her (but we are so glad that she has such a wonderful job!) so I took her out for a feed of sushi.  Our son happened to drop in and so came along and it was a lovely impromptu time.

We ordered California Roll with Crunch, Boston Roll


Dynamite Roll, Avocado Cucumber Roll,


Shrimp Tempura Roll, Yam Tempura Roll and Tuna Tempura Roll.

Sushi Ya (I feel like I should give a Miss Piggy karate chop when I say this restuarants’ name) is in our neighbourhood and very affordable and is our first choice for sushi.  In River Heights there is almost a sushi place on every block of Academy, Corydon and Grant so there are many, many places to choose from.  Where’s your fav place for sushi?

    Isaya and I have just come to love sushi over the last few years. Our peronal faves are Umi Sushi on Kenaston (kida across the parking lot from wallmart) really good, cheap and the I think the resturant is kida cute… In river hights I love California Sushi (across from Starbucks on acadmey) their lunch specail for under 8$ is great… tea, soup, salad, tempura, e-beans and your choice of sushi or teriyaki stir fry.
    We have also just figured out that we can make it at home which is super fun and we get to be a little creative with the filling, my new fave combination at home is smoked salmon and asparagus.
