Sushiholic- How Awesome Is 'The Awesome Roll'?

Sushiholic is a Japanese restaurant located on East Broadway that is famous of their ‘awesome roll’. I’ve never been here before so Lil Sis brought me here one time because it’s one of her favourite sushi roll restaurants.

It looked super sketch from the outside but the interior was COMPLETELY different and very pretty.

Sushi chefs hard at work behind the bar. We waited quite a while to get a seat because the place was packed.  Definitely not what I expected from a sketchy looking sushi place.

Special Maki Rolls.

All of them looked so enticing!! I may have to go back just to try them all. :D

We started off with a typical Scallop Roll ($3.75). It was one of the better scallop rolls I’ve had so this was a solid item.

I am glad that so far, I have never had a disappointing Las Vegas Roll ($11.95). This Las Vegas Roll consisted of asparagus, spicy salmon, cream cheese, crab meat, and tobiko and it stayed true to its name as it was super funky looking and hosted a yummy party in my mouth. :D

The extra detail of frying the sushi roll really made a difference as it gave the exterior of the roll a good crunch as well as melted the cream cheese inside. I would definitely recommend getting this roll when dining here.

The presentation of this Spider Roll ($8.95) was amazing and it was really delicious. If you don’t like softshell crab however, don’t get this as it is the main ingredient. It also contains masago, cucumber, avocado, and crispy bits on top.

If I’m not mistaken, they give you a whole soft shell crab so I definitely think this is worth the price. Normally, a soft shell crab is around $7-8 dollars anyways so I would choose this over a plain soft shell crab appy any day.

Their Salmon Sashimi ($9.95) was not bad but not the best I’ve had either. It was decent enough though so no complaints here.

Now for their famous Awesome Roll ($7.95) which is pretty much a California roll (avocado, cucumber and crab meat) topped with baked salmon, masago, and incredibly thin yam fries on top.

This is definitely a very unique roll and was quite delicious when incorporated with the crunchy yam. However, the yam fries usually spill over when you try to pick the sushi up so you will most likely end up eating them separately. :P Unless you have a gigantic mouth, in which I dare you to try and stuff both yam fries and sushi roll into your mouth. :D
