Monster Sushi

with one comment

When walking down 23rd street, on nearly every prior occasion, it has been for the sole purpose of stopping by La Maison du Macaron. On nearly every one of those instances, have also walked by Monster Sushi, given the name, it’s always been a head turner, but had yet to step inside.

After spending an afternoon in the area, found myself a block over and thought it would be an opportune time to stop in. Given the name, was expecting a lot, and even just looking at the menu, they have an extensive list of traditional sushi, innovative sushi, and an array of other Japanese cuisine options.

Ordered a few rolls and the quantity definitely did not disappoint. A huge plate that was full of sushi rolls arrives at the table and it is impossible to decide where to even start. Every roll was fresh and delicious and only wished there was more belly space to fit a few more. Would definitely stop by again – probably won’t have room for macarons afterwards, though.

Crêpe Cake

Gyu-Kaku, a Japanese BBQ chain, while offering a varied assortment of dishes, their dessert menu also offers some interesting options. Included is a dish called Green Tea Mille Crêpes. Simply put, it’s a slice of cake made up of multiple green tea crêpes accompanied by two scoops of ice cream.

Fantastic.

Gyu-Kaku has locations in California, New York, Illinois, Hawaii, and Canada
