Food court sushi?
Yes, food court sushi!
We were at the Broadway Mall, we'd just seen a movie, and figured we'd grab a quick bite in the food court. And there, as a welcome alternative to the various sandwich shops that now dominate the food court, was a full-service sushi/Japanese restaurant: Sushi.com
You wouldn't expect a broad menu at a counter-service restaurant in a food court, but...surprise! The menu features numerous entrees, including various udon, teriyaki and katsu dishes. Appetizers and sides include shumai, edamame, tempura, miso soup and seaweed salad. You can even get ice cream for dessert.
But the star of the menu is the sushi. Regular rolls, hand rolls, special roils, sushi nigiri ...prepared to order by a sushi chef while you wait.
I was a bit nervous about the quality of the food -- it is, after all, a food court -- so I chose something relatively safe; I need not have worried, the food was excellent.
I ordered the "Cobra special". This includes one California roll and one "Cobra roll, with your choice of miso soup or a soda. The California roll was standard. The Cobra roll -- shrimp tempura, crab salad, avocado, cucumber and a sweet brown sauce -- was outstanding.
Clearly not a "destination" restaurant, but if you're in the mall and cheesesteak isn't doing it for you, give this place a try.
Interesting side note. Although they've called this restaurant "Sushi.com", they do not, as yet, have an internet presence. In fact, the website www.sushi.com is a search engine designed to help you find Japanese food/sushi in your neighborhood, and this restaurant isn't listed on that search site.
