Round I: All U Can Eat


Round II: All U Can Eat

Three friends and I went to Ajia this evening for the All U Can Eat Sushi offering priced at $21.95 per person (tax and tip not included). This was my fourth visit to Ajia and my third time doing the All U Can Eat special. As always, Ajia did not disappoint. My eating companions and I gorged on a ridiculous amount of sushi:

  1. Sweet Potatoes
  2. Salmon Avocado
  3. California Roll
  4. Philadelphia Roll
  5. Salmon Skin & Cucumber
  6. Boston Roll
  7. Tuna Avocado
  8. West Roll (Smoked salmon, cream cheese & scallion)
  9. East Roll (Salmon, avocado, cucumber)
  10. Spicy Tuna Roll
  11. Spicy Salmon Roll
  12. Rock N Roll (Spicy tuna inside wrapped around avocado)
  13. Kani (Crab Stick)
  14. Tofu Skin
  15. Surf Clam
  16. Ika (squid)
  17. Tako (octopus)
  18. Tuna sashimi
  19. Salmon sashimi
  20. Yellowtail sashimi
  21. Spicy Crunchy Tuna
  22. Spicy Crunchy Salmon

The sushi rolls were of high quality fish and were not overly stuffed with rice. The sashimi pieces were very fresh as well, but unfortunately were accompanied by rice. Oh, fillers. My personal favorites are the shrimp tempura roll, inari sashimi (tofu skin), Philly roll, and crunchy spicy tuna and salmon.

We did not keep track of exactly how many rolls of each kind, but I assure you that it was well worth our paying price. I left completely drunk off mercury poisoning. Whatta feeling!

Service at Ajia is usually pretty horrible. Luckily the evening we went was fairly quiet so service was pretty decent. Note to self: avoid Friday nights, go early Saturday evenings. The waitress was quite militant about us finishing our sushi before ordering more. I don’t remember them being so adamant about the whole ordeal during my previous visits, but I guess that’s how it goes with an All U Can Eat special.

I crave Ajia every couple of months, so I’ll definitely be returning for another sushi fest soon.
