my dear Yuraku,

Please don't ever go away. This is the best value sushi I've found anywhere.   This was roll night, but usually we order a sashimi deluxe boat as well.  Here are some of my favorite rolls!

Spider Roll (top), Punk Rock & Roll (bottom)

eek. I'm getting so hungry posting this.  If you like tobiko, there's a mouthful for ya!

Alligator Roll (top most), Spicy Tuna Roll, (middle), Salmon Roll (bottom left)

Sorry, don't have a good picture for the alligator roll, but it's shrimp tempura topped with eel and avocado.
I'm not usually crazy about spicy tuna, but look at the generous portions!
Also why you can't go wrong with the salmon roll if you like salmon like we do.

Nabeyaki Udon

We've made it a habit to end our meal with a bowl of tasty udon here.  mm. satisfaction.

Some kind of lobster roll? (on the house, after our meal)

Salmon Head (freebie appetizer)

oh yeah, did i mention the awesome value here?  you get salmon head, some veggie sticks and dip, salad w/ ginger dressing, steamed egg and miso soup (see below).  I think what you get for free is supposed to depend on how much you order.

Steamed Egg, Miso soup (freebie appetizer)

this reminds me of one of my favorite steamed egg dishes my mom used to make.
i must request this next time i go home..
