Sushi & Egg Rolls – Sushi King (downtown)

Sushi - Nigiri and California Roll at Sushi King

My visit to Sushi King with my friend deserved two posts about what we ate there. So here is the second half of the visit posted here. What my friend ordered at Sushi King was the Sushi Combo 1, which has seven pieces of nigiri, a California roll, and seaweed salad. At first impression, this plate looks very colorful with all the pieces neatly arranged on a plate. If you have never had sushi, here is the rundown: nigiri are the pieces of sushi with a topping on it and California rolls are the pieces wrapped with seaweed and rice.

On this plate, the nigiri are mostly on the left and center, California rolls are on the bottom right, seaweed salad on the top left, and ginger and wasabi are on the top right.

The nigiri prepared here has tuna, salmon, tamago (sweet egg), octopus, and shrimp.

Sushi Combo: ~ $13

Japanese Chicken Curry – Sushi King (downtown)

Japanese Chicken Curry at Sushi King

A quick online search for “sushi king” yields plenty of restaurants named Sushi King across the nation, however I think they are named similarly and individually owned or operated. (I may be wrong, so comment away).

But that doesn’t stop the eating! Instead of sushi, here we have Japanese Chicken Curry. Not to be mistaken for curry [insert favorite meat: beef, chicken, pork] and rice, but this dish is simply like a soup.

It has pieces of chicken that are thinly sliced and cooked, potatoes, and slices of carrots all sitting in a soupy mixture of mild curry sauce. Included on the side is a bowl of rice topped with sesame seeds and a bowl of miso soup.
