Tonight we went to my favorite sushi place…Shogun in Overland Park, KS.
(Yes, Kansas seems an odd place for the mecca of sushi, but I’ve eaten sushi in every town I visit. Shogun is best, though Maki in Irvine, CA isn’t too shabby.)
So there’s only one problem…I’m vegan.
I do have an ace up my sleeve. Given that when I was eating fish, I routinely droped $80-$100 a meal there, I’ve celebrated my last 7 birth days there and my son’s birthdays (including the night he was born) there, the chef was nice enough to make me a roll with the following ingredients:
- Tempura Asparagus
- Japanese Pickles
I highly recommend everyone trying it.
This brings up a question, though. Would you, my loyal readers, be interested in a short set of posts on making sushi at home? It’s easier than it sounds, I promise…
