As I mentioned before, I loved how we got a few tips for places to eat this time around. The first dinner we went to was at Sansei which was recommended by my friend Karen.
As we pulled up I could tell why she recommended it. The place was overloaded with a line of people out the door. Maybe it was just luck but when they found out it was only two of us that would be dining, we were seated right away.
I started off with a mango crab salad roll. The server warned us that the portions would be small and he was right! Nonetheless it was a good starter. The menu had said the chili vinaigrette would be spicy but it was actually pretty sweet. The mangoes tasted as if they were picked from a tree right outside the place.
Up next was the familiar yet very filling, crispy spider roll. Everything about it screamed freshness. Now I knew why the place was packed. The service was very good despite the chaotic level of business that evening, the place was clean, and the food was fresh. My husband had ordered a salmon filet and it was also cooked well and just as fresh.
