Sushi Saga Edison, NJ 2/23/16
One of my co-workers has been on a health kick lately (We’ll call her T). T’s kinda been kickin’ ass. Actually…she’s lost a lot of weight. Go T. Anyway, I guess she eats a lot of sushi for the ‘health benefits’, and asked me if I wanted to roll with her and another coworker to get some. I said no at first, that I was trying to save money. Then she criticized me, “you don’t have 10 dollars for sushi?’. I said fuck it, and we hopped in her car and were off to no other than good ol’ Sushi Saga!
Since I’m on a budget and cheap as hell anyway I got a lunch special for $7.50 – any two regular sushi rolls with miso soup and salad. – yellow tail roll and peanut avocado roll. Shit was the same as it would be at any other sushi joint – except I never had a peanut avocado roll. My heart rate quickened when I ordered it…out of worry that it had peanuts, and there was a slight risk I could choke to death. I like to live dangerously though, so I pushed through the anxiety. Our salads and soups arrived, and my coworker got excited about the scent of the salad dressing. Started going on about how she loved that shit when she first ordered it. T even went as far to ask the waitress what the ingredients are, and to sell her a container of it. Waitress smiled nervously and said, “no, I’m sorry.” in a cute feminine Asian accent. I then apologized to the waitress, and explained to T how they didn’t want to sell their secret recipe. T’s response, “I could drink that shit out of a shoe”. I asked her what kind of shoe…she said, “a bowling shoe”. I thought it was quite hysterical that she was so smitten by the damn salad dressing.
Something I forgot to write in my first post about this place; they have green tea ice cream. I fuckin’ love green tea ice cream, and they not only had green tea flavored ice cream…but red bean ice cream too..! (mind blown). We finished our food and the waitress took about 15 minutes to get back over to our table to ask if we were finished and if we wanted anything else (There was no one else in the place, irritating). Now, I didn’t want to ask our waitress for any secret recipes or ingredients, but what I can tell you about the red bean ice cream is that it does indeed have pieces of red beans in it. AND the shit comes off as being house made ice cream. Not in a giant tub that’s been in a freezer for 15 years with a glacier growing on it.
Welp! Lo and behold! Our waitress bought over the iced creams with our individual checks AND a small container of the salad dressing for T! She was delighted, shoved it in her purse, and said she was gonna drink that shit in the car. Sushi Saga for the win today.
