Crispy Cali Roll: Crabstick, avocado, and cucumber with spicy mayo and a sweet glaze. Spicy, crispy, and sweet all in one bite! I haven’t met a tempura roll I didn’t like.
Spicy Salmon (top): Spicy salmon, cucumber, and tempura flakes. A nice change from the spicy tuna packed with heat. The only thing I was missing was the tempura flakes which made the roll a little boring. Either there wasn’t many on here, or they were absent.
Dragon (bottom): Crab salad, avocado, and cucumber topped with eel, avocado and a sweet glaze. One of my favorites. I like how the fresh crunch of the cucumber brightened up the sweet eel. The creamy avocado and crab salad was also a nice addition.
What I liked was that Josh and I could really enjoy an intimate meal without the rest of the place being too loud. We did grab dinner at around 7:30/8 p.m, but most places are packed on a Saturday in Ferndale at that time. If you are looking for a bite and a drink, try Sakana. It has that ritzy lounge feel combined with Asian flare.
