Three words: Deep fried sushi!!
I swear, that cheeseburger sushi is healthy food gone evil. Golden, crunchy crust – who knew deep fried rice could be so good – with a filling of steak and oohey-gooey, melting cheese. With a slick of creamy, spicy mayonnaise, it is verging on sickly (but sickly good, if that makes sense).
Then after three, maybe four pieces, maybe not so good. These are rich little buggers.
There’s also a bacon cheeseburger version.
That’s just as well, because I wouldn’t order anything else from Iku. We ordered a sizeable fraction of the menu and none of it, besides the cheeseburger sushi, will be a repeated event.
Everything else we ate – the inari sushi, the bento box and the signature sushi set were afflicted by rice that wanted to be glue. It was like swallowing cannonballs. (The salad in the bento box was nice though.)
This is a case of a shop making one thing really, really well. The cheeseburger sushi is a crass, sinful but delicious snack – a bit like the deep fried twinkie.
