    Major wasabe. It isn't enough unless your eyes water and your forehead sweats............. Tried a new place that just opened up in town. Not bad, reasonably priced but pretty small. Just imagine Corey a little porcelain water wheel, a little fake mountain with a hole in it, some colored stone, fake plants waving gently in the current, the sound of bubbles lazily floating to the surface from the pump.......................AND MY GIANT LILY WHITE ASS PRESSED UP AGAINST THE GLASS............

    Lots of specialty rolls like:

    Dragon Roll - Shrimp tempura and crab rolled up in rice and topped with eel.
    Rainbow Roll - California roll with various raw fish on top like salmon, tuna, white tuna, and shrimp.
    Aloha Roll - Raw salmon over a california roll

    Then my usual Maguro (raw salmon), Sake (raw tuna), and Unagi (eel)

    I recently discovered a little sushi place here in Knoxville, that has all you can eat Mon-Thurs as long as you get in the door between 5 and 7. You can order 3 things at a time, and they just keep bringing you little order sheets (only once you're done with the last order to cut down on waste). Last time I went, I ate about $90 dollars (regular price) worth of sushi for $30. Now I can only go on one of those nights, otherwise I'll spend a small fortune.

    We have this fairly new restaurant called Crazy Buffet. They have a very modest selectin of sushi, but they have crab legs at dinner. They also have several shrimp dishes along with a big selection of other items. It is only $13 for dinner and believe you me, when I hit the door, they are losing lots of money. I also put down about $40 worth of sushi right off the bat, then a couple of huge plates of crab legs.............

    I used to hate sushi, but for some reason i gave it another try about 2 years ago and I LOVE it. You can eat a ton of it and don't feel stuffed or bloated at all. :D Good for you too.

    Kim and I LOVE sushi, but there's only one place in Canmore that serves it- it's good, but it's really expensive($80 for two of us for dinner). Anyhow, we went a buddy's wedding in Vancouver, BC a couple of year ago, and in the downtown core there's 3 sushi shops on every block. The prices are dirt cheap, so we ordered enough for 4 people and took it back to the hotel room and pigged out.

    After about an hour, all the rice expanded in my belly and I could barely walk. I'm not kidding. So long story short, avoid the urge to overeat when sushi is involved. :deal:

    If it's prepared properly, there is little or no "fishy" taste. The assortment of textures and flavours is hard to find in any other type of cuisine. Go into it with an open mind, Drey, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.:thumb:
