Wasabi Please!

Before college I had never tried sushi- I was missing out! Lucky for me I was introduced to sushi soon after I started school at Michigan State. We are very fortunate to have authentic restaurants offering fresh sushi within walking distance of campus. Sushi Ya was the closest restaurant to me and I soon became addicted- I mean obsessed. My sister and I went at least twice a week and had to work at restraining ourselves from going daily. This was the beginning of my sushi eating and my favorite roll was the MSU roll, which I would definitely recommend for first timers. This is a tempura roll, which is basically a fried roll, with crab and no raw fish.

My sophomore year of school I tried other Sushi restaurants like Sansu and Omi. Sansu has some really creative rolls to offer, and has a really cool atmosphere but is a little bit more expensive. However they offer 25% off for MSU students on Tuesday nights (bring your ID and show it when you ask for the check). At Omi I usually get traditional rolls such as the spicy tuna or spicy scallop but my roommate raves about their veggie roll. I believe Omi has the best spicy tuna roll out of the three.  Both are great Sushi restaurants but I’m still partial to Sushi Ya. As my palate has progressed I’ve chosen new favorites like the Boston Roll and the Spicy Rolls. I love the combination of crisp vegetables, avocado and fresh fish, this = so yummy.

So please go out and try these places if you haven’t before. Also remember that there are plenty of options that do not include raw fish. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
