Shawn & I stopped in there last Saturday, early in the evening to avoid any possible crowd. At first we sat in a corner near the front, but ended up moving due to a very loud speaker.
We were happy to see they had Korean items on the menu, dol sot bibimbap & bulgogi as well as kimchi soup. I didn’t choose that route because we would go to Kim’s Korean for Korean food. Dancing Wasabi has 3 vegetarian sushi rolls 1. vegetable roll 2. cucumber roll 3. avocado & cucumber roll. We ordered the vegetable roll and two appetizers, agedashi tofu & veggie tempura. The agedashi tofu does not come with bonito (fish) flakes, but I double checked just in case.
It was the most interesting version of this we have had yet! The tofu was in triangles laid out, point up, on a bed of shredded cabbage and carrot. Ponzo sauce was drizzled around over the tofu and veggie bed. To one side there was a small pile of the shredded veggies with some sort of seasoning like a salad. There were also tiny tomatos (smaller than cherry or grape tomatoes that I’ve seen in groceries) cut in half and laid on and around the salad pile. The tofu crust was thin, crispy and tasty, possibly seasoned. It was delicious and very attractive.
The veggie tempura was asparagus spears, carrot sticks, sweet potato sticks and one onion ring. The sticks were all placed in a teepee form and the onion ring around the top to stand it up. The sauce that came with it was fairly bland so we ended up dipping in our wasabi soy sauce. The tempura had thin rice puff noodles all around it, that I am unsure if you are meant to eat, but we ate it anyway. I like the crispy snap when you eat those! The vegetable sushi roll was 8 pieces, pretty normal size. There was oshinko, cucmber and avocado in side with the rice on the outside. The bill was $18.64 before tip, which seemed about average.
I didn’t remember to take any photos until we’d eaten everything. If we’re over that way and want food, I could eat there again. It’s a bit of a distance to make a special trip, but that agedashi tofu was good!
