Hot Rolls, Bitchin’ Bento Boxes at Sushi Seven
Published: April 9, 2014
For our lunchtime visit we settled on the bento box lunch specials ($12.99). Available with a choice of nigiri, teriyaki chicken or chirashi rice bowl with agedashi tofu, the bentos also included a large serving of piping hot miso soup in ceramic bowls and standard California rolls.
The only misstep was a heavily salted teriyaki sauce, but the smoky agedashi—two large cubes of lightly fried silken tofu topped with bonito fish flakes—and the green salad were hits. Instead of a syrupy dressing, a light peanut sauce dressed the salad greens without the use of too much sugar. The staff didn’t skimp on the chirashi either, which featured a sampler mix of tuna, yellowfish, salmon, escolar, tako (octopus), sweetened shitake mushrooms and delightful tamago (or Japanese omelet) squares.
If Sushi Zushi is your jam, then a visit to Sushi Seven is probably due. This slightly familial apple didn’t fall too far from the tree.
