Delicious or Nutritious? Hakata Grill

Sushi can get kind of boring, so lately I’ve made an attempt to try new, creative rolls. Since this doesn’t always work out, when ordering from Hakata Grill I was sure to stick with a tested favorite while trying new things too.

Spider Roll

I liked soft-shell crab the first time I had it, so when I saw they had a Spider Roll made with soft shell crab and avocado I thought it’d be a good idea. Ehh. It was cool but to be honest I would’ve been better off with simple tuna.

Spicy Salmon Roll

The less adventuresome Spicy salmon roll did not disappoint. While trying two adventuresome rolls at once was exciting, it was nice to have some normalcy.

Dragon roll

My ultimate adventure roll was the Dragon roll. Eel and cucumber with large pieces of avocado on top – INTERESTING! Unfortunately the taste wasn’t as impressive as the description. I’m not sure when or why putting avocado in sushi became a cool idea but it’s not always that great of a combination. In small doses sure but as half the meal, not so much.

With an assortment of different rolls filled with avocado, and  cream cheese that don’t live up to the hype, Hakata Grill is neither DELICIOUS or NUTRITIOUS!
