I had been craving good sushi since moving to Boston - especially over the past 2 weeks, during which time I've been subsisting mostly on Dunkin' Donuts...

Today after wearing ourselves out from tennis/chasing down rogue balls/almost pegging children in the sandbox with said rogue balls/yelling "SORRY!!!" many many MANY times, we went out for dinner at Genki-ya in Brookline.

Although it's probably not one of the most famous sushi places in Boston, the location was convenient for us, the restaurant has plenty of space (= no waiting time for a table, even on the weekends), and they have plenty of "fancy rolls" to choose from.

My pal Ammara ordered the seaweed salad for an appetizer:

Both she and I ordered the Double Spicy Tuna roll (pictured in front), and I also got the Rich Salmon roll (pictured behind):

Louis chose the Fashion roll:

as well as a side of Udon:

Not going to lie - I was starving by the time we got dinner, and I scarfed down my rolls pretty quickly. Some credit has to go to the rolls though - they were good. Maybe the fish was not *quite* up to par as compared to the salmon and other seafood that we get in Seattle, but that may also be secondary to the degree of freshness. When it comes to seafood - the West coast beats the East any day :D

Overall rating: 6.5/10

  1. Curious to see if you find that awesome sushi place in Boston. Boston doesn't strike me as sushi connoisseur ... but then again, I've never been / really met anyone from there...
