Sushi, New England Style

The one bummer about our new town is that Andrew and I have not been able to find good takeout food that is close by. You've already heard me whine about the lack of decent Thai food. There isn't a good Korean restaurant nearby - in fact, we tried Apgujung's sister restaurant in Canton and it just wasn't the same, even though it had the advantage of being a BYOB establishement, so we decided that it was better to simply drive all the way back to Newton when we get a craving for okdol bibimbap.  Chinese, I don't tend to crave at all since compared to all the other Asisan cuisines I love, it seems to be the unhealthiest and least tasty of the bunch.

However, we struck gold with a Japanese place, Ichiro sushi,  that is miles within our house. Better than that, it delivers! We've already ordered from them twice in the past couple of weeks.

One of our new favorites? The Red Sox maki roll (pictured on the left with spicy tuna on the right):
It comes with lobster, asparagus, avocado, cucumber, lettuce, tobiko and spicy mayo the inside:
That's a good-sized chunk of lobster! And I know it sounds weird to be eating it in a sushi roll, but it actually tastes amazing with the spicy mayo.  Not pictured is their deliciously crispy tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet) that I've gotten Andrew hooked on. We're definitely putting this restaurant on speed dial and we'll actually have to dine in one of these days.
