I lived in Asia for a number of years, but the best sushi I've ever had is in Cherry Hill, NJ!
Steve (Megu) and his wife Brenda are incredible hosts and their sushi is like none I've had in Asia. Many sushi eaters go for the standards, but in my opinion, here is a sushi feast:
Eric Salmon – if this isn’t the most awesome thing you’ve ever tasted….
Oyster Shot – don’t shoot it. We sip the liquid and then save the oyster and uni for last.
Live Scallop – we dip the scallop in soy sauce and then eat it with the “crunchies” that are in the middle of the shell.
Yellowtail Carpaccio – Try it with a piece of the salad. There’s more sauce beneath the salad.
New Style Hamachi – Try it with some of the roe and scallions in the middle of the plate.
Salmon Ceveche – Make sure you soak it in the sauce.
White Tuna Salad – We like to cut the tuna into smaller pieces so we have a piece of it with each bite of the salad. Make sure you cover the tuna with the sauce which pools under the lettuce
Central Park roll - Has tuna tartar
Megu roll - Has shrimp tempura and lobster
Splendid roll - Yum
Art of Maki - This is always a crowd pleaser. It gives new meaning to the word "fresh"
Playboy roll (always order last) Has a little bit of eel.
The order I’ve listed is important…kinda’ like serving white wine before red wine! Speaking of wine, you might bring some sake. Sho Chiku Bai is a very good brand (and surprisingly inexpensive) and can be drunk hot or cold. If you have some cold, ask for the sliced cucumber that we put into it (You want to chill it – don’t add ice.)
