Yoshi Sushi Gnoshi
Having old friends in town is an excellent excuse to go eat some sushi. I was excited when I got an email from a family I haven’t seen for more than 12 years, since I was a teenager growing up in Durant, Oklahoma! They were heading for Cayman and looking to link up. Well, you know me. The answer is always ‘yes’ when it comes to fun and its always an emphatic ‘YES!’ if there is food involved. So we made plans to have dinner at Yoshi Sushi
Yoshi has one of those menus that can be a little scary. It’s about a billion pages long and features more than 120 different dishes and combinations (yes, I counted.) Choosing our starters was a bit laborious but we managed it within a reasonable amount of time once you factor in all the ‘catching up’ we were doing. Clockwise from the upper left: Gyoza potstickers, spicy edamame, ginger beef on crispy noodles, and goodlordIforgottowriteitodown. Forgive me! I was excited about seeing my peeps.
I had the edamame and Clark Kent had the ginger beef. Both of them were very good. I had a runny nose about halfway through my starter which always indicates a tasty, spicy dish.
The entrees are a bit easier because you can just go with the specials: Nigiri sushi with Sake (salmon), dragon roll, spicy tuna sashimi and dynamite shrimp tempura roll.
I was the one person at the table who left room for dessert. Honestly, I didn’t have any room but Yoshi’s green tea ice cream is worth the risk of slipping into a food coma.
We had an amazing time and I just wanted to say thanks so much to the Newton family: Kara, Jenna and Brenda for letting me steal some of their vacation time!
