Teriyaki Express [California Rolls]
It has been a while since Food In The Fox has had sushi, so that’s what was decided on for lunch on Wednesday. Now, usually when in Darboy, Jet Sushi is the go to sushi place, but today we decided to try something a bit different. Teriyaki Express is right off of Calumet Street and seemed like a good choice for a quick, reasonably priced lunch. Be careful, this place is hard to miss as it is tucked in a strip mall next to Edward Jones and Pizza King.
Sushi & Typical Chinese Dishes
The place was clean and empty when we walked in at right around 11:00. Everything they make is from scratch, or should I say, prepared right in front of you on a grill top. They have about 10 different types of sushi rolls to choose from and about 5 or 6 other plates, including teriyaki chicken. Prices for rolls range from about $5.00 to $7.00 depending on what you order. I decided to go with the California Rolls, which are avocado, crab, and cucumber wrapped inside seaweed with white rice on the outside.
California Rolls on Styrofoam
It didn’t take long for them to prepare the rolls, and as you can see by the picture, they were served on a lovely styrofoam plate. There was a packed of soy sauce, a blob of wasabi, and some ginger on the side as well. Despite the somewhat poor presentation, the rolls were absolutely delicious. The avocado was not too hard or mushy and the wasabi had the right amount of heat to make me easily finish a large glass of water while eating the rolls. They were satisfying and with tax, came in at about $5.50, which is a pretty good deal for fresh sushi.
