NY is a great place to try new foods. During vacation last month, I had it set in my mind that I would try a new restaurant as often as I could. One day I was walking around in Hells Kitchen and couldn’t believe the amount of restaurants there were. I would’ve loved to stop and try them all.
My cousin had been telling me about this place in Staten Island called Sushi Excellent. I told her that I was definitely interested to try it out. We decided to order take out and make it a movie night at home. We ordered Kani Salad, Kaniza, Scorpion King Roll, Coconut Shrimp Roll, Spicy Kani Roll and Shrimp Tempura. we also had a bottle of Sweet Red Wine to go with our meal.
The Kani Salad is made with Kani (crab), cucumber, masago & mayo. This was the first time I had this kind of salad and it was so delicious. The Kaniza is fried crab dumplings, they look like crab rangoons. The Scorpion King is made with avocado & soft shell crab inside, topped with spicy kani crunchy, masago & sweet soy. The Coconut Shrimp Roll is made with Coconut shrimp inside, topped with smoked lobster salad, avocado & masago, coconut wasabi drizzle. The Spicy Kani Roll is crab, and the Shrimp Tempura is fried shrimp.
By far this has been one of the best sushi restaurants I have tried. Definitely on my top list. Everything was on point as far as taste, decor and imagine, it was take out. I will definitely be visiting them again in my next trip out there. My only wish would be that they open one in Miami. Pricing was in the $$
Thankful for one of my mentors and OU alum, Lee, who drove from Conneticut to help me move into my NYC apartment. We had dinner at Corner Shop Cafe, in between NoHo and SoHo: calamari and rigatoni. #nofilter #ny #nyc #manhattan #nyfoods #restaurants #localeats #localrestaurants #NoHo #SoHo (Taken with Instagram at New York)
