Beautiful Butterfly Roll At Yama Sushi

Butterfly roll at Yama Sushi
"Which roll is this?" we asked.  "Look," the waitress said, "You can see."

Of course, that's the butterfly roll.

I have said before that Yama Sushi breaks into the top rank of sushi spots with interesting rolls and dabs of unique sauce.  Our new find is the butterfly roll -- salmon draped over a center piece of avocado and tuna, topped with a spicy mayonaise.  Again, it's fresh fish, balanced nicely and touched off with the sauce.

The design on the plate is just extra, but it's the type of attention to detail that makes Yama Sushi such a smart place.  They do a bunch of nice rolls.  The "sweet mango" wrapped really good fruit around a tempura shrimp.  They coat that plate in a sauce so good that I was dipping other rolls in that long after the shrimp was gone.

We LOVE Yama Sushi - have gone there since they opened. They know my dad's order by heart!

Yes! I have been a recent convert to Yama Sushi's excellent rolls. The Butterfly roll is one of my favorites, and if you like your rolls a bit on the spicier side, go for their Spicy Girl. If you really want to bring the heat, try the Triple Hot.

While it's not sushi, I love their Yaki Udon with Shrimp. They give you 10 huge shrimp, with the shells cut down to the tail. It's the attention to detail that I love, as well as the huge portion!
