27 Aug

For my 27th birthday, Lauren surprised me by organizing a dinner at Fuji-ya in Uptown with some of our closest friends!  I never suspected a thing, except for when Jason called me late in the afternoon for directions to the restaurant.

All sorts of deliciousness exploding into my taste buds.

I admittedly am doing this review more than a month after the meal, so I can’t remember exactly what all I had, but I know one of the rolls I ordered was the caterpillar roll, one of my all-time sushi faves.  I had never even tried sushi until 2007, and even then it took a while to grow on me.  But since I met Lauren, we have been ordering sushi more and more often and now it’s among my favorites.

Fuji-ya is about as good of sushi as I’ve had in the Twin Cities.  I am a fan of Mount Fuji, Origami, Wasabi, and Kabuki as well, and at this point it’s difficult for me to differentiate much between the places.  I tend to prefer sushi with the crispy outers but not sushi with smushy insides.  Lauren’s meal wouldn’t have been as much to my liking.  But I snarfed mine down and washed it down with some warm sake.

Like I said, I can’t say for sure if Fuji-ya is any better than any of the other sushi places, but I’d recommend it!  4/5 Noms.
