Foodie Friday: Mexican Sushi
While in El Paso, we went to this sushi place called “The Sushi Place” which specializes in a Mexican Roll, among other tasty off-beat rolls. My favorites were the The Dragon Roll and The Sushi Place Roll. You’ll find the descriptions below the photos. Can’t wait to visit again for this tasty sushi! If you’re in El Paso, try it!
The Dragon Roll :: Shrimp Tempura, carrot and cucumber, covered with eel, avocado, masago and eel sauce. Isn’t it lovely? So colorful.
The Mexican Roll :: Manchego cheese, avocado, surimi, seasoned jalapenos and tampico paste. Covered with chicken breast. SMOTHERED in Sriracha Sauce!
**WARNING** MAY CAUSE TEARY EYES AND SEARED TASTE BUDS **
The Sushi Place Roll :: (tempura) Cream cheese, avocado, crab, shrimp, furikake, chives and seasoned jalapenos covered with eel and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
Don’t be afraid of sushi! It simply means “wrapped in rice”. Doesn’t have to be raw. You can always find some interesting (fully cooked!) rolls out there. Have a great weekend!
