My friend and I came here last night to check out their happy hour from 5-7 pm. We walked in at 5:02 pm and there were already 6-7 other people there. Dang, what recession?
My first impression was, wow, this is Cougarville! Rawwwwrrrrrr. I'm just a lil Puma in training. Moving on...
Happy hour features appetizers and sushi rolls along with 2 different drinks. 2 drinks?! WTF right? I had the Slingchi martini and my friend had the Juicy Infusion. Both tasted way too effen strong. I didn't much care for mine. So, we ended up ordering a large cold Nigori sake at $20.
Slingchi martini- blech
sake, the evil of the evening
In terms of food, we ordered a bunch of sushi, all $4-$5 each.
Spicy shrimp roll: pretty tasty, probably my favorite roll of the evening.
Tuna tartare: meh, the tuna was too big and chunky and didn't have much flavor. Dislike.
Oyster dynamite: Too much mayo on this thing. Dislike again.
Spicy tuna roll: It was okay, nothing special about it or memorable.
Salmon, cucumber, avocado roll: Ehh.. was okay as well. My favorite part was the cucumber.
So, overall, happy hour food here is mediocre. Drinks are mediocre. Service was okay. The waitress gave us the wrong bill which was less than our correct bill. Then, after she rang it up, she told us she had to ring up the right bill. Umm yeah. Total bill for the evening- $65.
Were we happy? Yeah sure, after all that sake. But, the food leaves little to be desired.
