tanioka's

Something different from Tanioka's.

I've been here several times over the years and enjoy their food which is reasonable and good.

Spicy Ahi Inari...This is an inarizushi topped with some spicy ahi (tuna). Inarizushi is some sushi rice, rice that is seasoned with sugar, vinegar and salt and stuffed into a fried tofu pocket. The fried tofu pocket is seasoned with mirin (sweet rice wine) and shoyu (soy sauce).

This version was quite spicy, there was also some green onion, a little mayo, shredded nori (laver) and some tobiko (flying fish egg) mixed in with the spicy ahi.

I loved the heat from the ahi, there was also sweet, sour and salty flavors from the sushi.

I also had part of their mochiko chicken musubi, that thing is still HUGE.

Talk about being content...have a nice weekend!

How have I not heard of this before! We normally just have the poke and maybe ahi patties from here. But this spicy inari sounds like something I'd love. :) Have a great weekend!
