Time for a small rant about some of the disgusting fare that passes for sushi maki these days. Don’t get me wrong, some sushi rolls are wonderful, but some people have gotten totally out of control.
We’re going to shed some light on these sushi roll transgressions, and hopefully prevent these kinds of things from being created in future. Singling out the wrongdoers is the only way. And these concoctions truly deserve to be our 2011 inductees into the newly minted Sushi Roll Hall of Shame!
So here’s our “dis-honor roll” for those poor creations that became out top ten abominations in 2011. Leave now if you have a weak constitution or if there are young children watching.
I thought I’d bring a dessert to a party last, and what could be better than fruit sushi? Yes, I saw a sweet version of fruit sushi made on this video.
OK to start my faux sushi I made rice. Now this is sticky rice, but not the Japanese sticky rice I use for real sushi. This is Thai sweet sticky rice, the kind they use for desserts like this sticky rice and mango. This is a long grain sticky rice, while the Japanese sticky rice is short grained rice.
The rice is cooked with coconut milk – it’s steamed and left to cool. After it cools, we shape it into rice patties to be used for our nigiri.

We recently enjoyed omakase dinner at the relaxed and friendly Gaysha New World Sushi in Wilton Manors, FL. Look at the photos, drool a little, then scroll back up and read about it.
Uni Shooters – some great looking, firm golden uni swimming in cold, dry sake with a touch of ponzu. These are actually geared for true uni lovers — they come with quail eggs, just as a great uni gunkan sushi would. This was bolstered by some small pieces of scallion which really finished the drink up nicely.
Tuna Aburi – this dish featured tuna, first and foremost. It was lightly torch-seared, with a great sauce made from soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and olive oil. Served with a bit of onion and mustard. Wonderful stuff! (more…)
We’re going back to the scene of a great omakase dinner last year. Despite a torrential downpour, and tornado watches, we met at Maido Japanese Restaurant in Doral, FL. People cancelled due to the weather, others were late, as traffic was miserable, and yet we had a terrific time.
This time we’ve scheduled great weather, and this ought to be one fine feast. We have a great crew assembled, the tag team of Genya and Hiroshi are ready and planning our meal already. The only current problem is that we have to wait another week still!
This is a fixed price special dinner for $30 cash only, including tax and tip. And in case you have any doubts that they will fix us up with something wonderful (or just to check out last year’s event) see this post detailing our omakase dinner at Maido. (more…)
