Garnished with gemstone-like tobiko roe, Tuna Tartare also adds a lovely touch to your Valentine’s dinner.
True to its name, the casual neighborhood restaurant, AA Ichiban Sushi serves up a wide variety of rolls, as well as dishes ranging from tempura to teriyaki. According to Manager, Carl Chen, customers go crazy for Ichiban’s special rolls which number as many as 24. Their creative names alone pique interest, and their ingredients will have you salivating. For example, the Crush Roll is deep fried with spicy tuna, spicy salmon and avocado, and it is topped with eel sauce, spicy mayo, scallion and caviar. Ichiban goes beyond sushi to offer reasonably priced bento boxes during both lunch and dinner ($9.50 and $19 respectively). There are vegetable bentos and other options for vegetarians, but Chen says that when it comes to the bentos customers tend to go for chicken teriyaki or pork katsu. They come with miso soup, salad, fried shumai, a California roll and rice, so clearly don’t hold back on volume. Other lunch specials include $14 sushi plates and roll combinations, in addition to soba and udon soups from $9.50 there is no lack of selection. Ichiban boasts a full alcohol menu and is offering 10% off all meals at dinner (both eat-in and to-go), so why not check out this sushi specialty shop?
Sweet Heart Roll is a perfect treat for your Valentine. The heart-shaped roll contains spicy tuna, tempura crunch and avocado inside, topped with sliced fresh tuna and garnished with spicy mayo.
Max Roll highlights a mix of flavors and textures; spicy white tuna, tempura crunch and avocado rolled inside and topped with spicy lobster, tuna, avocado, and black/red tobiko roe.
Located right across from Fashion Institute of Technology, AA Ichiban caters casual atmosphere and reasonable sushi dishes to its neighbors.
