Sushiyama: the Teardrop (DFW)

vktp | Jan 30, 2007 07:28 PM

After seeing a couple mentions on this board, I hit Sushiyama for dinner tonight. As promised, the menu looked very authentically Japanese. However, as luck would have it, Tuesdays are $1 sushi night-- $1 for a piece of nigiri (with a couple exceptions like toro), 10 piece minimum. The pieces were on the small side, but of reasonable quality. The standout, however, was definitely the Teardrop. I ordered it without giving much thought to what it might be. Perhaps I'm sushi-sheltered, but I had never imagined, much less come across, a seaweed-wrapped morsel of finely diced, pickled wasabi plant--or so the waiter described it in broken English after I popped it whole into my mouth, cried, hacked, and whimpered. The burning sensation was evil, but it eventually faded into an almost pleasant pickle-butteriness. They really should put a warning on it. Or at least describe what it is on the menu. . .

Can't wait to return and try the ramen and the curry udon. And to inflict the teardrop on unsuspecting newcomers.
