Sakae Sushi

After our lunch at Spoon House we stopped by Sakae Sushi, which is right next door. Hubby loves to pick up Futomaki sushi to take home as a snack. Now, this place is not very noticeable from the outside, you might pass by it without even noticing the place. It's a hole-in-the-wall type of a joint with no place to sit and eat inside... Just a counter to order at with a menu above it. They only have 6 different sushi choices (Nori-maki, Inari, Ebi, Saba, Tamago-maki, and California Roll) but their menu hasn't changed in over 40 years! Yep, that's right. This little hole-in-the-wall has been around for about 45 years and the owners have literally kept everything the same for decades.
I highly recommend their nori maki. A type of traditional futomaki that has an assortment of colorful ingredients including pickles, shitake mushrooms, and egg. Actually, it's so good that I never got around to trying the other things on the menu before. The sushi even comes in a cute little package for you to open up like a Christmas present!
Once I open up the package I get all excited by the colorful little rows of FAT sushi! The rice is cooked just right, and at 70 cents a piece and a flavor that hasn't changed in over 40 years, you just can't go wrong.
