A lot of people turn their heads and make a sour face when they hear “sushi” but through this blog I want to show readers that new explorations, while intimidating, are worth while!

First off, my love for sushi began a couple of years ago. To be honest, I was petrified of the weird and different textured thing that my mother and younger sister ate constantly, but when i was forced against my will to try, I fell in love.

This blog will cover health facts and sushi, restaurant reviews, facts, personal experiences, and tutorials. I hope to change minds, enlighten, and learn more about sushi.

Now to the fun stuff!

On Tuesday night to celebrate and kick off the blog I dined at Sushi Roku in Scottsdale, AZ. It was phenomenal to say the least.The staff worked in unison, there was a perfect amount of time in between each course and our waiter, Ron, was more than pleasant taking the time to give us his recommendations and explain different items on the menu. They also prepared special request maki roll that I normally order back home!

I learned at Sushi Roku that there are three ways to order sushi other than the most commmonly know: Nigiri, Sashimi and Maki. The three other ways are Chirashi, Inari, and Temaki

I was also pleased to hear that Sushi Roku receives shipments daily with their sushi grade fish. They get their shipments from Los Angeles, CA and customers who have visited both restaurants in California and Arizona say that the fish in Scottsdale tastes fresher than in California!

Ron mentioned that their inventory is based upon demand and also seasonal items such as oysters. Sushi Roku also offers meals on the menu that are not sushi related, which is enjoyable for guests who have sushi lovers and those who are weary to try.

The atmosphere was upbeat yet relaxing as modern, hip, soft techno music played. It was definitely a pleasant experience and surprise especially from a chain restaurant. It’s nice to know that each restaurant keeps up to par with the standards the first chain started.

Sushi Roku is on the pricey side. I’d give it about $$$ out of $$$$$. If you’re looking for a new place to try or something different Sushi Roku is more than worth it.
