Sushi from Vons

AteTooMuch | Mar 12, 200810:12 PM

This sounds crazy, but I was compelled to buy sushi from Vons in Pasadena on California street right across from the Huntington Memorial hospital.

Compelled? I was walking by and saw this older gent of asian decent making the sushi. (looked and sounded filipino) Curiously, I stopped and watched a bit. My 8 yo (who loves some sushi), pointed...so I bought... I got a pack of "blue crab" roll and an avocado roll.

The kind gent even asked if I had any special requests... not having tasted any "supermarket" sushi (ok, i tried Trader Joe's sushi and wasn't too happy with it) I politely declined.

Well, popped those packets open in the car and much to my amazement, they tasted good! All the ingredients were fresh, the rice had a nice texture and flavorful too.

Never woulda thunk it. Any howz, just wanted to share what I believe to be a unique culinary experience.
