Assorted temaki (hand rolls) – Tenka Japanese Restaurant

I think I’m undecided whether I truly like hand rolls or not. It’s just a lot of seawead to deal with and these were chewy and hard to chew through, making it hard to neatly eat the rolls. They do stuff quite a lot of filling in these hand rolls and you don’t have to use chopsticks, which is great for incompetent users like myself. The spicy tako temaki was my favorite!

This appetizer read better than it looked once it arrived.  Perhaps it was the lighting, but it looked so unappetizing.  I’m not even sure what the sauce was on top. I can’t say that I remember what these tasted like, but they were cheap!

Assorted sushi – Tenka Japanese Restaurant

This place is awesome for happy hour! The prices are great and the sushi doesn’t suck. You always have to be a little weary of super cheap sushi, but this place serves above decent sushi at rock bottom prices. That’s awesome in my book!  You can get a nice large meal for only a few bucks. Of the sushi below, the scallop nigiri was my favorite!
