I know. What can be healthier than fish on rice? (And no. Those nasty rolls with cream cheese are not my idea of “healthy”.)
Sushi… made with BROWN RICE?!
Yes. I mean, no. I am not one of those health freaks who is constantly jumping on every single new “superfood” trend that comes about. I have heard enough about soybeans, acai, quinoa, and pomegranates! Brown rice though. Hm. I used to purple rice… sooooo I guess I’m okay with my rice being brown. 🙂
But sushi with brown rice?! I was instantly intrigued when I happened upon Shikibu while Yelping (yes, I made it a verb!). This tiny sushi bar (and when I mean tiny… I mean TINY) was less than 5 minutes from my apartment too! I think there was only space for about 5 people inside and maybe 4 out on the “patio”. But despite the cramped conditions, the food was delicious! 🙂 And I felt so healthy eating it too. 😛
My friend Wendy Shaun and I ordered a Tiger Roll, Salmon Roll, and Crispy Brown Rice with Spicy Tuna. 😀 YUM.
I thoroughly enjoyed this meal. 🙂 I can’t wait to go back. Considering that it was decently priced and less than a mile from my apartment…it’s definitely a keeper! 😀
