Wa Sushi in Lawrence

September 27, 2009 at 6:27 pm Leave a comment

Surprising as it may be, you can get good sushi in the middle of Kansas. Though landlocked, Lawrence does have a couple of fine sushi spots. I recently went to Wa Sushi for the second time. The laid back atmosphere was in keeping with its location in a college town, and our server was very competent and knowledgeable about the very extensive menu. We started with an excellent squid and seaweed salad, a novelty since one usually sees a squid salad or a seaweed salad, but not a combination of the two. The textures and flavors complemented each other perfectly.IMG_0342

My husband had a spicy ramen noodle soup that he reluctantly shared, and we tried several specialitiesIMG_0344 of the house, including a tuna “sandwich”– rice, spicy tuna and squares of nori, layered and then cut into triangles. It should appeal to those who are chopstick challenged, as it is best eaten with your fingers. We also enjoyed a caterpillar roll with eel and avocado and a crabby dragon roll with softshell crab.

Though this  may not have been the best sushi I’ve ever had, it was reasonably priced and very satisfying. The offerings included many  specialty sushi rolls that I’ve not seen on other menus. That originality, along with the extremely friendly service may be one reason why it’s been a mainstay on Massachusetts St. for many years.IMG_0347
