Location Description:

This Japanese restaurant is exactly what its name implies: a stepping stone for sushi virgins. Whether you’ve never had raw fish and sticky rice rolled up in seaweed – or love the stuff but have never made it yourself – Sushi 101 will help you along the way to understanding the iconic dish. The menu comes with a glossary of sushi, which breaks down all of the offerings by ingredient. Don’t know that a caterpillar roll has unagi (eel) and avocado? You do now! The restaurant also offers signature creations like the ASU Roll (real crab meat, avocado, and cucumber wrapped with soy paper and topped with fresh salmon, avocado, and creamy ponzu) and the Moon Walk (sweet potato and avocado topped with spicy tuna and sliced lemon). Along with rolls, Sushi 101 serves sashimi, nigiri, bento specials, noodles, soups, salads, and entrées like grilled salmon and chicken katsu. To learn the trick of the trade, join the sushi making class offered every Sunday afternoon for just $15.
