We stopped by Sushi Pier for a late lunch. Friends recommended the All You Can Eat option. I can tell you we walked in hungry and walked out completely and utterly stuffed! I can tell you that my partner and I love sushi and Sushi Pier does sushi well.
We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was relatively quiet. The restaurant seemed to have filled up in the 1 1/2 hours we were there. We started off with the Miso soup and the vegetable tempura. The Miso soup was a little salty but it was warm and it went down really well! The tempura was crispy and delicious. I've never had a bell pepper tempura and I have to admit, it was really good.
My partner is a huge salmon and crab lover. He had the salmon nigiri which he enjoyed. He also had the Donald nigiri (salmon nigiri with crab, unagi sauce and a dab of sirracha on top)! He loved it. He also had a upside down crab roll which he thought was delicious.
I had the philadelphia roll. The smoked salmon and cream cheese was absolutely fantastic. The king kong roll was a little interesting. I think this was my least favorite roll that I tried. The roll had tempura shrimp and cream cheese inside (I think) and it was dipped in tempura batter and deep fried. I think the rice became mushy and really gave a weird texture to the roll. We both shared a Marilyn Monroll which was another version of the Philadelphia roll (except with fresh salmon instead of smoked salmon).
We finished our meal with the Happy Endings desert which was a tempura fried banana dressed like an ice cream sundae. Absolutely fantastic!!!!!
I will say that if you go, beware! The rolls are very huge (10 to 12 pieces). We walked out completed stuffed! The sushi is fresh and the rolls are creative! We will definitely be back!!!
