Archive for the ‘Ichiban Sushi Restaurant’ Category

My guy and I consider ourselves sushi connoisseurs as we try to go at least once a month.  We like trying new sushi places and this was our first time at Ichiban in Ocean.  Well let me just say we were considerably impressed!

For starters we had a curry scallop with mango rice appetizer. I’m not a huge fan of mango, but they were perfectly chopped (small pieces) and integrated nicely with the rice providing a more aromatic effect than anything else. The scallops were succulent. Additionally, we consumed an order of gyoza which were perfectly made. I also had some salad, too.

For our main course, we shared a sashimi deluxe platter, special eel roll (eel, tuna, avocado), rock n roll (whitefish salmon, crab, scallion, caviar), “mysterious” roll (lobster, tuna, spicy mayo), and rainbow roll (california roll topped with salmon, tuna, whitefish, and yellowtail).

The sashimi platter came in a large bowl filled with ice. We think this was the key to why it was so delicious. The fish was ultra fresh! The rolls were out of this world. Immaculately made. I regret not having my camera with me – as you must see (and of course taste!) to appreciate.

We now think that Ichiban is our new favorite sushi restaurant. So run, don’t walk, to Ichiban. You’ll love it! 🙂
