I love sushi. When I found out that a Japanese place called Domo Sushi had recently opened up about a mile off campus, I wanted to go there asap. Michael and I had a lunch date there today, and I have to get the word out that this place is extremely affordable and delicious! Their lunch specials are especially cheap, too, as far as sushi goes. Check out the menu on their website. : )
Today, we ordered a Salmon Teriyaki lunch box. Apart from salmon teriyaki, it also came with a California roll, rock shrimp kakiage, rice, and miso soup. My favorite part had to be the kakiage – it reminded me of tempura. I could have eaten an entire order of it! Maybe next time. :P
We also ordered the lunch special of a three-roll combo for $12. In this case.. we had Salmon & Avocado, Crunchy Spicy Tuna, and Eel & Cucumber. I was very impressed with their sushi. The sauce on the eel roll was delectably sweet, and there was so much avocado in the salmon roll! <3 The ingredients tasted super-fresh, too. Upon sampling one of each, I had already made up my mind that I’m definitely coming back here again.
Afterwards, we ordered Green Tea Ice Cream Tempura (aka Fried Ice Cream) for dessert. Neither of us have had it before, despite hearing great things from other people, but we’re always willing to try out something new. ; ) Our waitress lit a small amount of rum on fire with a lighter, then poured it over the dessert – resulting in a crackling, flaming presentation. Unfortunately, the rum didn’t burn out completely, so the fried ice cream tasted a little bit like it. It was crunchy and lathered in raspberry-chocolate syrup on the outside, and so sweet and cold on the inside!
I would definitely recommend Domo Sushi to anyone who lives in the area. Compared to other local Japanese/Sushi places, it’s the most affordable. For two people, the bill came out to only $30. I have absolutely no complaints with the food, either – I left completely satisfied. : )
