Actually I thought it was, but it really wasn't. There's one on the other side of the street, that same area. Trying to find the name.. over by the Chase that was burned down.

EDIT: Himawari

Well add in a couple Sapporos at about $10 apiece or so then yea. I took it literally as thats the sushi cost my bad lol

Where my wife and I go, special rolls range from $8 - $14 with most of them being around $10 which is what we get. Salad, soup, AND steamed clams get included in all dinner orders for us and we stick with green tea. Including tip we've never paid more than $60 ($35 for 3 rolls, $3 for 2 green teas, $5 dessert, + tax and tip) and thats when we got dessert. We do order one less special roll than you with each of us ordering one and then splitting the other.

About 30 years ago my brother was stationed in Phoenix. There was a Sushi restaurant across from the ASU campus that was called Arizona Beach. It opened at 5pm and if you managed to get a seat at their large sushi bar, you could get All You Can Eat Sushi, made to your order, for $12!!!!!!

Anyone have any idea what happened? Bad fish?
Was it in Salmon? Since wild Salmon spend part of their time in fresh or brackish water, they can contract tapeworm or roundworm.
A Study in Seattle showed 100% of wild caught salmon carried worms, while all farmed salmon lacked such infections.
Prevalence of larval Anisakis simplex in pen-reared and wild-caught salmon (Salmonidae) from Puget Sound, Washington

If you buy "wild" sockeye at Trader Joe's, you will find evidence of worms in their flesh. However, it is safe to eat because it has been frozen.

All raw salmon consumed commercially in Japan is farmed for this reason.

I do not buy "wild" salmon for this reason. It's piggy-backing on the organic crazy and priced higher, too. Funny.

dunno, it was Summer 2010. I am into stuff like that (food science, food safety, etc.) so it has been bugging me ever since. it seriously looked like a little worm crawling out of the fish.

oh well, didn't mean to gross anyone out

If I can get passed the fact that it is not cooked I am told I will love it. (yeah ok). So I order other non sushi items like cucumber roll, and any other hibatchi style foods. There used to be a place in Valley Stream called Inatome Japanese Steak House. Great food. Does Benihana serve sushi?? There is another place on Old country road called shiro of japan. I have not been in a long time but I remeber it was good the last time I was there and they also serve sushi.
There was an electrical fire there around a year ago and it burnt down. They are rebuilding and will reopen hopefully soon. I love that place! I actually have been eating there since I was a kid!

I'm guessing the answer is no, but have you ever tried raw beef? Beef carpaccio, from a high-end place, is one of the best foods I've ever eaten.
