my artistic neighbourhood sushi restaurant

On many Fridays, I like to treat myself and have lunch at a Sushi restaurant near my work - Nijo Sushi. They have some of the best sushi for a great price in the area.

I usually stick to my favourites, like salmon sashimi, Alaska rolls, Dragon rolls or their awesome Udon noodle bowls, but yesterday I was feeling adventurous and decided to browse the menu for something new to try.

Imagine my delight when I read the description for the "Fire Mountain roll" - salmon, crab and eel covered in roe. Are you kidding me? Those are my 3 favourite things to eat at Sushi restaurants, covered in my 4th favourite thing! I had to get it.

The cutest thing though is the take-out containers. I didn't pull them out until I got back to the office, but how adorable is this?

Now, THAT'S customer service! :D

And then I opened the Fire Mountain roll box and my eyes were almost blinded by how intensely red the roe was...and how MUCH there was! The photo doesn't do it justice.

Oh, and please forgive the crappy photo quality! I didn't have my camera with me and had to take these photos with my BlackBerry camera.

That's awesome! Every friday my husband and I treat ourselves to our favorite local sushi place. They have a "train" where you can pull whatever you want off....I'm still a big fan of the good ol' California roll. MMM mmm sushi!!!

Those takeout boxes are too cute - and a really good example of how such simple, cost effective things can make a business stand out.
