Spring Asian (Fleetwood) vs. Haiku (Bronxville)

After an extended involuntary sushi/sashimi hiatus, I was treated on back to back days by friends to lunch. The first day was Spring Asian. We started with this crunchy salad - perfect starter. A bottle of cold sake - nice and sweet. Then we got two rolls. A spicy tuna roll and salmon roll - delicious. We then finished with 18 pcs of assorted sashimi (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, shrimp and some crab) - best part of the meal. We finished off with a sushi pizza, that while sounding crazy, was delicious and covered in two sauces, one of which was very spicy. Overall I'd give it an 8 out of ten. My only real knock was the cuts on some of the sashimi were a little thick. The day ended with the sushi chef overhearing I had just celebrated a birthday and he had them bring out a decadent piece of chocolate cake.

The following day I got the call to meet a friend at Haiku. We started with a few ice cold Sapporo's and some Gyoza (fried dumplings) - very nice start, but a little crisp on the edges. We then moved on to our main dish. A huge sushi plate with the only sashimi piece being my uni. Tuna, salmon an eel and then two specialty rolls. A dancing eel dragon roll and a passion roll, which we did not realize came in the shape of a heart, which made our man day sitting outside look like a man-date. Who cares, the passion roll was probably the best part. My only know was the uni was not as tasty as when I had it at Haiku in Eastchester last year. The plain sushi pieces were a little drier than the fish at Spring Asian/. So I'd have to say about a 7 out of ten. Definitely a lot more to look at sitting on the sidewalk in Bronxville though. So take that into consideration
