Last night, husband and I went to one of our favorite sushi places in Washington: Tono Sushi. I love that Tono has a wide selection, very fresh fish and really good brown rice sushi. I started off with miso soup and seaweed salad:
Tono offers several options for miso soup – last night I picked the tofu and yellowtail one, which, like all the others I have tried there is delicious. I particularly like the seaweed salad at Tono because it offers a sampler of several seaweeds. I rarely make use of the dressing because I like the seaweed on its own, but the dressing is very good – thick rich sesame dressing.
Husband started his meal with gyoza and chicken yakitori, two of this favorites at Tono:
The sad truth of brown rice sushi is that, if not made correctly, it can be inedible.That’s why I make the extra trek to Tono because it is the best brown rice sushi I have found in Washington, DC – it is hearty and definitely brown rice, but has the same fluffiness that regular white rice sushi has. I had a yellowtail and scallion roll as well as nigiri pieces of yellowtail and salmon:
Husband had the Manhattan Roll (Spicy Crunchy Shrimp) and the Spicy Scallop roll. He said both were delicious:
Tono Sushi is right by the Woodley Park – National Zoo Metro stop, so perfect if you are in Washington, DC and visiting the zoo. They have a sushi happy hour special with $1 nigiri sushi from 5 to 7.30pm everyday.
