Since moving to Germany Hubs and I have been having some serious Japanese food withdrawals namely sushi! Living in San Francisco complete with it's very own Japantown with a plethera of Japanese restaurants to choose from seriously spoiled us! We haven't had any luck with the Japanese restaurants around us so I decided to do a little Google research and found that there was a place in Nuremburg that had great reviews.
Nuremburg is roughly an hour and a half from where we live right now (3 hours roundtrip!) so it's definitely quite a hike for us. *sigh* The things I will do (and make hubby do) for good food hahah!
They started dinner off with some wet towels.. that weren't hot sadly (umm.. hello they're called hot towels for a reason!!).. and some bean sprouts.. the bean sprouts needed more seasame oil.
I was disappointed by the opening but our seaweed salad app was SO NOMMY. Hubs and I were fighting over this dish.. he kept sliding it over to his side of the table and I kept sliding it back. Next time we go back we're ordering one for each of us. Bonus points for the awesome and adorable presentation! A carrot cherry blossom! ADORBS!
|Shrimp & Vegetable Tempera|
This was quite tasty the batter was light and crisp and the veggies were delish! The mushrooms they used for this dish were out of this world.. but if you look closely you will see that the shrimp (and there was sadly only 1 shrimp!) is curled up.. not flat like it's suppose to be :( I don't know if it's a mental thing or what but my Tempera craving has sadly not been satisfied! hahaha.
Needed more flavoring the soup was too bland although the veggies look so pretty in this pic right?? hahaha
|Negitoro, Ebi, Avocado & Cucumber, Unagi & Cucumber, Lobster, Unagi & Cream Cheese|
The real reason we made the hike!
Truth be told the rest of the meal was just OK. The Sushi however was DELISH! Hubby and I have already agreed the next time we come back we're just gonna do Sushi and only Sushi. I finally got my Unagi fix (HUZZAH!), and the lobster was very clean and sweet tasting. The Hubs said that his Negitoro roll was the BEST Negitoro he's had in his entire life and that it was buttery and smooth.
I think I'm starting to salivate as I type this!
If you're ever in Nuremburg I def recommend this place but go for the Seaweed Salad & Sushi! :)
