This is my second restaurant review and I finally decided I am only going to post reviews about restaurants I really do love. I don’t like the idea of bashing restaurants because truth be told- your crabby waitress could have been dealing with a lot of craziness and could have had an off night. But back to the good stuff- this restaurant review is on Union Sushi (@West Erie). I loved this restaurant so much, I went back twice in the same weekend to try more of the menu. Like I told you before, I love tapas style eating because I love to try a little bit of everything.
From the moment we sat down, the atmosphere in the restaurant was great. Very low-key but a fun vibe to it, the staff was great and our waitress was great at recommending items off the menu. Every table is offered a complimentary side of Edamame which was a nice little treat to start off with as you are trying to figure out what to order.
For my dinner I ordered the following:
SLIDERS | wagyu beef, berkshire pork cutlet, crab cake ($5 each).
*My favorite was the wagyu beef with the fried egg inside, delicious! On the side of each came sweet potato chips.
Clifton #4 : fried calamari, masago, green onion, grilled asparagus, cilantro, marble nori + garlic mayo 6/12 ( I loved that you could order a half or full order for either $6 or $12).
*This sushi roll was amazing!!!! The mix between the asparagus, cilantro, calamari, and all the other goodies was amazing! This is a must-try!
Oxtail Rice– although this sounds and at the time didn’t look very appealing, it was one of my favorite things I got that night. It was a mix of dark brown rice with oxtail meat throughout. It is small enough for one person, plus it’s so good you won’t want to share.
Barbecue Bar – Classic kushiyaki-style grilled meat, fish and vegetables over a 600° open flame robata grill, served on a skewer. One skewer per order. Our table ordered the following: LOVED THEM ALL!
- JUMBO SHRIMP | sweet black pepper, sesame 6
- ALLIGATOR | garlic-soy + Kirin Light 4
- BEEF FILET | ginger-soy 4
You can’t have good food without great drinks and that they had as well. I ordered the SURPRISE + DELIGHT (Effen Cucumber, Pimm’s No.1, Lemon, Simple Syrup, Muddled Lemongrass, Muddled Strawberry, Seltzer) want to find out how to make it? Click here. I loved the flavor of cucumbers, lemongrass, and strawberries throughout this drink. This drink was so refreshing but the right amount of sweetness!
Overall myself and a group of friends LOVED Union Sushi and plan on going back very soon! What restaurants do you love or recommend? I’d love to hear!
