Sushi: vegetarian & avocado

Sushi: vegetarian & avocado

In Syracuse we have a few sushi restaurants near campus and I hated the sushi I had at one of these places. Giving sushi another chance was not on the cards but at Haru, I dared. It’s probably the seaweed that freaks me a little when it comes to sushi but once I overcame that, vegetable sushi was pretty edible with sriracha hot sauce. With rice outside and vegetables intricately wrapped in seaweed, i enjoyed the vegetable sushi.

The other variant I tried was avocado. While I am a big fan of guacamole, avocado by itself is a little difficult to gulp. Perhaps the bland taste has something to do with that. (Avocado in a subway sandwich was the worst sub I ever had.) Anyhow, dipped in hot sauce, avocado sushi was enjoyed, less than vegetable sushi though.

Moral of the story: everything tastes good with sriracha.

    “Moral of the story: everything tastes good with sriracha” — Amen to that ! This is like one of those little mysteries of life. To make your veggie sushi a little more palatable (atleast to an Indian tongue), you could experiment with jalapeno or some other chillies or addd some shredded capsicum. Something to vary the texture and taste perhaps? :)

    Great attempt at rolling it !

    I havent tried vegetarian sushi before, but it sounds like blasphemy to have sushi with sriracha!! Though I do agree stuff tastes good with sriracha, with the hot sauce, you are runing at textures and complimentary flavors that the sushi may have.

    To get over your seaweed-phobia, try the seaweed salad. It tastes like stringy lettuce or so, pretty good most of the time. And then enjoy the sushi with a tiny bit of wasabi and soy. And ban the sriracha from the table :)

      Hehe. I understand what you’re saying. I think the sriracha helped me get used to the Sushi. I’ve replaced the sriracha with spicy mayo.
