Chef Dee’s Condiments
Samurai X Sushi and Teriyaki

At this “sushi bar” and most others like it, the sushi chef usually stands visible out front. Giving guest a opportunity to see first hand how their sushi is made. Our waitress (no name tags) did not appear to be very attentive and there was also little communication. She even brought the check before asking if there was anything else we wanted/needed. A lot of this may have been based on a language and cultural barrier. On the plus side, with little conversation, there was no upselling involved.
After taking some time to look over the extensive menu my guest and I both decided to get a Bento Box (a combination of a few dishes in a box like container). The box comes with your choice of two items and is served with miso soup, rice and salad. My two selections were their 8 piece California rolls (cause that’s how I roll, Cali style) and the mix tempura. They offer over 15 different selections for this special.
Less then 5 minutes after placing our order, our soup was delivered piping hot. Before we were able to finish the soup our entrees arrived. I loved the cute box like dish the special was served in; Everything neatly assembled in its own compartment. The smoke that was ascending off of my tempura let me know it was fresh and had just came out of the fry. My guest also ordered the California rolls but chose to accompany hers with chicken teriyaki. After finishing our dinner we decided to give their desserts a try. Unfortunately they were out of the Green Tea Ice Cream so we ended up ordering their deep fried Oreos. For me the fried Oreo wasn’t all that. Between the tempura batter and whipped cream on top the Oreo seemed to suffer.
