I liked the flavors in this bowl, but it was really small and the fish wasn’t the best quality. Thank goodness they put plenty of pickled ginger to help kill off any bacteria.

This was pretty good for a chain restaurant’s version of Americanized sushi. I did like the flavors although the sushi rice had a weird consistency. Douse it in enough sauce and forget about the finer details, lol!

I didn’t like this very much. The fried chicken pieces had a weird exterior texture and the long vegetable cuts were weird with the chicken. This dish also made me sick before boarding the plane and I felt horrible on the entire flight home. 😦
