|The actual #15 Roll|
In November, we had eaten a delicious new roll with green tea noodles, and I swear that we had ordered the #15 Roll special that night. Either way, I posted a rave describing that as the #15 Roll. This month, people ordered the #15 at Sono and then asked whether the recipe had changed -- maybe green tea noodles had been removed?
No, the Sono folks said, with grace and patience. That roll with green tea noodles has a name that translates like Green Tea Noodle Roll. It's another special that the kitchen is working to perfect.
Then the killer: "I know HowChow says that was the #15. But it wasn't."
I have revised the November post to note that that was the "Green Tea Noodle Roll" or something similar. And now, I come again to praise the #15. This is another Sono success where the chefs play with flavors and textures. The smoky flavor of the salmon against the sweetest of crab. The crunch of seaweed with the papery flakes of dried fish. Both the "Green Tea" and the #15 are worth checking out.
We have begun to order every visit off the white board of Sono specials. If anything, that has made us more-interested in driving to Columbia. We get new surprises, and everything is done right. If only HowChow could produce as perfectly.
