Sushi Grade: Knee Stroke
I wanted to get sushi in Seattle, but due to an unfortunate timing situation, the only place I could go was a stupid choice called Sam's Sushi (Seattle: Ballard). This inspired me to create a sushi grading system, which I will use from now on.
Grade J(iro): The sushi level I'm told exists but that I've never experienced.
Grade A: Orgasm Sushi = Top tier sushi - my face looks orgasmic with this sushi
Grade B: Ear Lick Sushi = Really good but not quite orgasmic level
Grade C: Hair Pulling Sushi = Good, with fun ingredients, but frustratingly not satisfyingly great quality
Grade D: Knee Stroke Sushi = Tasty, but once you have standards for sushi pleasure, this just doesn't cut it
Grade E: Bad Kisser Sushi = You're sort of still happy to be eating sushi, but at some point your time/money/calories are just being wasted on this stuff
I seem to have lost my notes, but I can still tell you what you need to know.
|This fried shell of crab salad, spicy mayo and tobiko was tasty.|
There was a happy hour going that had a sushi and maki combo going and some cheaper rolls, so that the following was like seven bucks.
|The happy hour rolls were all $5-$6.|
It really doesn't matter which rolls they were. This was Knee Stroke sushi. The point of the grading system is that, while some rolls are better than others at a restaurant, that's only within a small margin and often depends on personal taste. On a different level, if your first piece of sushi at a restaurant is Knee Stroke, it's all going to be Knee Stroke. Unless you're just cheap and live in the area and don't have sushi standards, skip this place.
|My brother doesn't eat sushi, so he got some Chicken Yakatori - $5.50. It was fine.|
|Happy hour! Anderw says,"Cheers!" All beers two for $4.|
