It’s been a minute since we’ve had a proper date night so we decided that we were long overdue! We picked Maru Sushi Bar simply because they had 4.5 stars and great reviews on Yelp.
We ordered a few of their different specialty rolls and enjoyed all of them! The only one I was a little iffy on was the roll topped with eel and avocado, but even that was good. I enjoy spicier, more savory flavors and tend not to like sweeter teriyaki type sauces so that may have something to do with it.
This Oh! Baby Roll was our favorite roll of the night I think. It was different and I loved that it was spicy crab and scallop mix, avocado, and sprouts wrapped in a piece of tuna. Craving this all over again!
The quality of the fish could be noticed in the sashimi we ordered. The tuna with the roasted brussels sprout was surprising and odd. I believe the other was yellowtail with jalapeño and cilantro. The yellowtail was my favorite out of the two.
We also got a tuna rice cake which is unpictured, but we both LOVED. The crispy texture of the rice really did a great job contrasting with the avocado and spicy tuna.
We will definitely be going back at some point to try out more of their rolls!
I had made brownies and added in some Reese’s PB cups for dessert. I had thought ahead and bought vanilla ice-cream to top it off 🙂
We ended our night nice and cozy with our brownie creation and some Narcos Mexico…pretty darn perfect!
