My Meal at Wasabi


Even though my Sunday night suppers are usually the most elaborate home-cooked meals of the week, I couldn’t bear to cook last night. My husband and I headed to Wasabi. He started with the Sunomono: cucumber, tuna, crab,  tobiko and rice vinegar:


Crisp, cool and delicious.

I had the salmon ceviche with watermelon:


Just what a girl wants on a hot summer night.

We shared another cooler, the Sake Apple, which is salmon, asparagus and tobiko wrapped by thinly sliced apple with miso sauce:


Also great.

Then he had the black cod with miso sauce.


A classic. Don’t you love the sweetness in this dish?

And I did the lobster martini with asparagus, avocado, mustard aioli, black tobiko:


Also fab. I know I just posted about Wasabi, but that meal was ages ago. (Remember, it was clean-out-the-drafts-folder day on Small Bites!) That post actually reminded me to go back for another visit, and I’m awfully glad I did.


The 411 on Wasabi.
