Things I Love Today: Oshinko Maki

Rob and I read an article a while ago about the history of sushi and the tuna shortage and decided to try some of the “old fashioned” pickled rolls. Our neighborhood sushi place, Miyabi, makes a few different varieties.

Oshinko is my new obsession. Pickled daikon radish maki! It’s crunchy and vinegary…just perfect. Next time I’ll try Gowbow (pickled japanese burdock) or umeshisho (pasted plum with mint leaf). Yum!

    there’s another great classic roll to try, I think it’s called Kampyo. It’s cooked squash! I see it on most authentic (not trendy) sushi restaurants. It’s sweet and a similar consistency to tuna, and with a wasabi and ginger garnish the sweet, hot and prickly flavors blend superbly!

    omg! Have you tried the Church Street Roll there? It’s a delight! For me, it’s one of the only reasons to go there instead of no name sushi.

    Mmm…tempura asparagus and mango! One of the best sushi combinations ever!
