We’re on A Roll! at Zushi Me Sushi Fushion

All rightie, it doesn’t say eat all the rolls but I didn’t find a sign that said just that so this will have to do, my foodie friends.

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Eat all the sushi!

But I’m  getting ahead of myself.  First, a little background of how we came to this pretty little sushi bar . I’ve been seeing snippets of this place on the web but didn’t really get a name and it’s a big thanks to power eatsploring couple, Ela and Paolo that my researching ended. (You’re on a roll with recommending great places for the Baguio food adventurers and it is much appreciated! We can now all move on to more productive and pleasurable things like … yes …  eating =b)

ZushiMe Baguio tea

Little tea pot of green tea

I’ve been craving for maki, rolls, salmon sushi and little bites of that sort since our most recent visit to Sumo Sam (theirs are a more over the top selection of rolls that gave me a sickened feeling after a few slices) , and with this visit to Zushi Me, I was thoroughly gratified. *contented sighs

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Race and Xine in the dining area

In Zushi Me =)

After admiring how quaint the dining area of this restaurant is, Race and I noticed that there was more to this sushi resto than sushi. They also serve other Japanese dishes like kani soup and vegetable gyoza.  (Okay, okay, gyoza doesn’t seem all too different from rolls – in the way that we eat it but there we go.)

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Vegetable gyouza

Dainty gyoza stuffed with vegetables

These were delicately made with a nice balance of the stuffing and the wonton wrap. Served with a dipping sauce different from the sushi soy sauce, the five pieces were down our hatches before my drink was delivered to the table.

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Kani soup

Kani soup. Get a load of the lotsa stuff in it!  =b

The kani soup is one of the best egg drop soups I’ve ever had. It’s like Knorr real Chinese soup – just add one egg! *gong sound … with tons and tons of crab stick strips and other bits and pieces that for a moment, I thought I was eating congee.

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Box salmon roll

Box salmon chef’s signature roll ^^,

I was intent on satisfying my hankering for salmon so the box salmon roll was my first choice of roll. Oh my, those stripped up crab sticks and salmon. (And what a lovely hue, the ZushiMe’s special sauce had too, don’t you agree?)

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Purple yam shake

Ube shake (Enjoy this photo because it’s the last you’ll see of something not rolled in rice, a bundle of ingredients, whole meals in one chopstick bite till the end of the post. *hihi)

As soon as we had two platters of rolls in front of us, the box salmon and tsunami maki; our drinks, the cute pot of green tea and ube shake, quickly took a back seat (and were forgotten till the end of the meal) to the explosion of flavors the rolls had. =)

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Tsunami roll

Tsunami maki

The tsunami maki with its stuffing of asparagus, cucumber and lettuce was lost on me. It was overpowered by the crabstick breading that covered it and I realized right then that crunchy, rough stuff on rolls is not for me. *shyeew

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Godzilla roll

Godzilla roll

I quickly changed my mind about that on-the-rolls line with our next order because although it had crunchy bits on it, it was fine.  It’s the enveloped whole piece that I didn’t like.  I ate these crispy crab sticks (on a roll with the crab sticks too *heehaha) by itself, enjoying how it had a sweet nib on it like nori maki arare. As for the roll itself, a rich bite with salmon, tuna, more crabsticks, mango and cucumber.

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 Octopus sushi nigiri

Octopus sushi nigiri

Race was already feeling quite full with our selection of  Zushi Me greats but I still wanted to keep on chopstick-ing. \m/ We got one from the sushi nigiri selection – fish on top of rice, the octopus nigiri. I don’t believe I’ve ever had octopus in my life and I was thinking it might just taste like squid. Not sure until I have both in one sitting but this was chewy and I think had a stronger taste of the sea than squid. (Take a bite out of octopus – CHECK!) Oh and yes, the menu didn’t mention it but there was a light brushing of wasabi between the rice and the octopus that gave me a jolt with matching terrified expression for a couple of seconds. (Haha, Racey missed taking a photo =)) )

ZushiMe Baguio 2014 rainbow roll

Rainbow roll =D

I STILL haven’t gotten enough and rainbow roll came to see what it could do.  Topped with a variety of sashimi (salmon, tuna, octopus; one we’re not certain if it’s mackarel or barbecued eel or still octopus; and yup, yup, yup, crab sticks), I was done for … in a good way. (“,)

Table setting for two … who have a small order. Our attendant thought she should move us for our dining comfort. Thank you so much to you! \m/

X marks ZushiMe for good food in Baguio. We’re on a roll roll, we’re on a crab stick roll and we’re on a roll with good eats in Baguio City (Thanks once again, Ela and Paolo! I owe you … Eve’s Garden, take two? =D) 

Food: 5 treasure chests Affordable and delicious rolls and sushi, san ka pa?

Service: 4 treasure chests (Pardon the different sizes of the treasure chest ratings, WordPress changed up their photo details window and it’s driving me nuts!)

Ambiance: 4 treasure chests

Price: Something my better half and I didnt agree on. Anyway, I’m giving a 4 treasure chests for Zushi Me. Race said it’s  3 treasure chests for him. *hee

Before I forget, here’s the ZushiMe menu. Ready, afoodionados? Let’s roll!
