Week 3 – Naru Sushi

Week 3 in my adventures with meeting my New Year’s resolution to try a new restaurant every week.


This week I decided to try Naru Sushi in Newark (http://www.sushinaru.com).  It had been on my list since December because of the signs outside that mentioned 99-cent sake bombs.  Unfortunately I got sick, and it just didn’t seem fair to go to a place that offered such a great price on sake bombs without being able to try them.  So, we finally got to go on Wednesday.

First off, this place seems very mom-n-pop which is always a plus for me.  I really like to support local businesses, especially if they’re not corporately owned.  One negative is that they had bench seating, where all the tables are in a row along one long bench.  The lack of intimacy and privacy really bugs me, but it seems to be normal these days.

The employees were really nice and were very attentive.  They brought out tea and edamame.  We each got a sake bomb, but drank the sake and beer separately ’cause that’s how we roll.  The sake was warm and sweet, the beer was Sapporo.  Yum.  We also ordered miso soup, and then we shared the cherry blossom roll and the spicy rainbow roll.  The miso was light, not too salty, and the tofu was creamy.  The cherry blossom roll was plated nicely with a nice flavor.  The spicy rainbow roll was plated much like any other roll might be with each piece staggered.  It wasn’t very spicy though, which was a disappointment for me.

Overall, I really liked this place.  The bathroom was clean, the people were nice and the food was tasty.  If they didn’t have bench seating it would be a perfect sushi experience for me.
