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.
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)
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
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.)
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.
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.
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?)
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. =)
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
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.
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 =)) )
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. (“,)
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)
Service: (Pardon the different sizes of the treasure chest ratings, WordPress changed up their photo details window and it’s driving me nuts!)
Price: Something my better half and I didnt agree on. Anyway, I’m giving a for Zushi Me. Race said it’s for him. *hee UPDATE 03/11/2018: Okidoki, I agree with Race now for they’ve raised their prices. (I’ll leave a collage of their 2018 menu under the old one.)
Before I forget, here’s the ZushiMe menu. Ready, afoodionados? Let’s roll!
Zushi Me (Sushi Fushion)
[Yep, they spelled it like that. So reminds me of Risaikuru Furyu: Recycled for You Japanese surplus *snicker snicker)]
