Stonefish Sushi and More

In May 2011, my husband and I first visited Stonefish Sushi and were blown away by the atmosphere, friendly servers and the food. Unfortunately, there were so many things going on in our lives, we didn't have the opportunity to go back until recently.
Let me tell you right off the bat that nothing much has changed (mainly the menu) and that is a big positive for Stonefish Sushi; and why they are so popular. The atmosphere: as soon as you enter, you can feel the stress slowly flow off your body. The hostess and servers are friendly and attentive. The food is still excellent quality. We decided to try some new dishes and an old favorite...lets get the favorite out of the way.
The Vegas Roll contains: salmon, avocado, cream cheese, fried tempura style, spicy mayo, unagi sauce. It is absolutely one of the most delicious specialty rolls I have ever eaten. Smooth, creamy, so decandent; it should be listed as one of the deadly sins.
Ok, now on to the new dishes; as an appetizer we tried the Veggie Tempura Bowl. Bite sized pieces of fresh zucchini, yellow squash, mushrooms, broccoli and asparagus; tempura battered, fried light and crispy. The sauce that is served with it is on the salty side, so dip lightly; but then again, who would think of saturating tempura and making it soggy?
The Stonefish roll contains eel, avocado, krab, cucumber, eel sauce; it's a very mild tasting roll and the freshness of the ingredients is a dominant factor. A little, and I mean little, dab of wasabi will only make the flavors pop, but doesn't ruin the essence of the roll. Please, don't be soaking this baby in soy sauce.
Now for the finale, the Bananas Foster Bowl - bananas fried tempura style with scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Now I am one who dislikes bananas, however, I found myself not being able to resist the ones in this dessert. We finished the whole thing; yes, it's a large dessert, so be willing to share.
Stonefish Sushi is an absolutely fabulous place to dine; keep up the great work!!!
