Sushi Kokyo for Lunch

jcwla | May 12, 200405:06 PM

Went yesterday for lunch.
The place was booming -- it is right next to a Curves so presumably a fair number of the women drop in beforehand or afterward, not to mention those shopping the other establishment in this little minimall.

Anyway, they bring out a nice little thing of edamame, maybe a couple dozen or so -- perfect size, but they belong to the cold-and-unsalted school and I belong to the warm-and-salted camp. Oh well -- still yummy.

Started with a half order of what they call "tuna tartare" which is actually tuna tartare on little crispy wontons with orange, green and black pastes on top. I'm sure the green was wasabi paste a la the swordfish at La Cachette, but I doubt the black was caviar as it is on the out-of-this-world yellowtail carpaccio at R-23. And as for the orange -- smelt egg? Nah...dunno. Anyway -- highly yummy.

Then came a big honkin' spicy tuna roll in soypaper. Tasted good and there was tons of it for about $5. Total came to $14 plus tip and I thought it was, if not a destination restaurant, certainly a good place to pop in for a meal if one is in the area.
