Michelle’s Top Three Dishes in Order by Most Favorite to Least Favorite
“Light My Fire” Roll | Crunch Shrimp | Spicy Tuna | Avocado | Jalapeno | Spicy Aioli | Eel BBQ Sauce | Shredded Beets |
First time trying a roll with shredded beets as a sushi topping. I love love love beets. They make your heart beet beet beet healthier. Sushi Rock used shredded chioggia beets. Chioggia Beets are also referred to as candy cane beets because of their natural sweetness and red color. Whenever I am low on energy I love eating beets. They are good sources for folate, manganese, copper and are filled with vitamin a, c, k, and B2. (Source) I loved how the staff entertained @dmvfoodiecrew with a fire torch. No wonder it is named after the song “Light My Fire”. As a K-Pop listener, the fire reminded me of the song “Fire” by BTS. All of their sushi dishes rock and rolled my love for sushi; this particular roll stood out because of the beets and just so happened to be one of their most famous roll.
Katsu | Pork or Chicken Katsu | Japanese Style Cutlet | Served with Rice and Miso Soup and House Greens |
I loved the katsu; the sauce was great too. I wonder if the sauce is house made at the restaurant or store bought; either way I loved the sauce. I have never been to a buffet (including sushi buffets) where they served katsu. Great choice for the Sushi Rock staff to add katsu to their buffet menu. Keep on rocking your creative ideas.
Kobe Dumplings | Steamed or Fried | Sushi Rock’s Dumpling Sauce |
Saved best for last! The dumplings were chewy and the flavors melted on my tongue’s palettes on every bite. The dumpling dough was perfect, not too heavy on the flour and not too soft. They were also perfectly steamed with their special “dumpling sauce”. Love how on their menu you can customize the dumplings to be steamed or fried.
You can still try the Fourth of July menu items as a full appetizer or entree. If you do not have any plans, I highly recommend going to Sushi Rock on Fourth of July. Follow them on Instagram, @SushiRockVA , for updates. They also have all you can eat on Memorial Day as well.
I have been to Sushi Hachi, so I was not surprised by the hospitality at Sushi Rock. All the staffs were friendly and went out of their way to explain the dishes. And they did not give me the stink eye when I kept grabbing the same sushi rolls, instead they asked, “Do you want me to refill the dish?”
