It’s about time I went in to check out the new Wasa Sushi Bar & Grill. I can’t believe I waited this long! A family run business with dad and daughters, I could not have felt more welcomed and at home. The place was even beautifully decorated for Christmas. I met the new proprietor and it was immediately evident that he has a passion for this business and making it succeed. It was almost infectious. Such a super nice guy and family.
I ordered a Shrimp Tempura Roll. Made with tempura shrimp, crab, avocado, sprouts and cucumber; rolled with both nori and soy paper, topped with eel sauce. The presentation itself was simply stunning! It tasted as good as it looks, that I can tell you. The last time I ordered a shrimp tempura roll here (Da Tuna Shack), it was $9, in December 2014. Four years later, it’s still only $9! I was impressed.
In my opinion there are only a handful of restaurants in Ramona that are absolute standouts. I now consider Wasa Sushi among them! If you’re not a fan of susie, there are plenty of other great options; they have much more than just sushi. In fact they’re open for lunch now with an expanded menu, including deli sandwiches, loaded fries and whatnot. I look forward to visiting Wasa again soon!
