How Do You Aoki? (Aka What’s Your Ideal 3 Roll Sushi Combo?)
Left is Mine, Right is Hers
I have slowly come to the realization that in the matter of sushi (as it pertains to Midtown Lunch’ing) I will never find the holy grail. In other words, you pretty much always get what you pay for… and it’s impossible to get a ton of sushi for less than $10, and also have it be edible. But if push comes to shove, my favorite spot is still Aoki (on 48th btw. 7+8th) even though they raised the price of their 3 roll lunch special from $10 to $11. Tasty Eating is apparently a fan as well, and I couldn’t help but notice that her roll choice is a mirror image of my standard order: eel and avocado, crunchy spicy tuna (don’t judge me), & shrimp tempura. Great minds, I guess? What’s your ideal three roll combo?
