All aboard, train Blue C on track 1!
My relationship with Asian food started some time ago. I have enjoyed, and come to fall in love with Korean BBQ, Pho, Filipino food, and most recent Japanese cuisine like Shabu-Shabu. My experience with sushi, and sashimi, however, did not begin until last November when I tried NOBU’s interpetation of it. As time has progress I have become more comfortable with using chopsticks, and eating raw fish. My NOBU introduction gave my mind, and palette a point of reference that would assist in my exploration of authentic and fusion Japanese pabulum.
Blue C Sushi is a great introductory restaurant for those who have not tried, are leery of trying, or otherwise have no experience with Japanese cuisine. The food is not so overpowering that it frightens the timid of heart. Many dishes have familiars elements which make them acceptable, like the Fresh Ahi Tuna Tostada, or the Loaded Baked Potato Sushi. Adding bacon certainly makes anything better, and this stands true with Blue C’s BLT Tuna Roll.
Exploring Toyko’s train system is an adventure that I look forward to experiencing. Conceptualizing it in a Hollywood sushi eatery is a good way to spark an interest, and create a desire to learn more. Blue C takes familiar elements, traditional preparation method, and a cliff note’s look at Japan’s train system to give its diners a great overture of Japanese culture, cuisine and the fusion possibilities imaginable.
