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
