Sushi Station... revisited

Last week, during spring break, my mom took us to Sushi Station. Sushi Station (SS for short) is my FAVORITE place to eat. I love it. My sisters love it. My mom loves it.

Sushi Station has recently been on the local news and on the WTTW show "Check Please" so it is always busy. During the week SS opens at 11:30 a.m., we were there at 11:38 a.m. and got the last available table.

That is me and my Station Roll...
How embarrassing, I am sitting next to
my sisters American Girl Doll. Yuck.

My favorite rolls are Station Rolls. They are yummy. A Station Roll is crab salad and masago wrapped in seaweed and rice. 4 pieces for $2. Quite a bargain! I think I ate 8 rolls that day.

Piper had Tamago which is cooked egg on top of rice with a ribbon of seaweed to hold it together. My sister McKenzie says that Tamago tastes like an omelet made with maple syrup. I will take her word for it because I like my eggs warm, not cold.

McKenzie had a few different kinds of sushi. Her favorites are Tamago, Station Rolls, Philadelphia Rolls (cream cheese, avocado and salmon wrapped in seaweed and rice), and she always tries something new every time we visit. This time she tried a Dream Roll... I do not know what is in the Dream Roll but if it does not taste like a Station Roll, it is not dreamy to me.

McKenzie eats with her eyes closed.

My mom has a bunch of favorites; the Godzilla Roll (cream cheese, crab and salmon wrapped in seaweed and rice and with tempura) and the Hanako Roll (cream cheese, tempura crumbs, crab and green onions topped with mayo and teriyaki sauce) are her favorites from way back but recently she has a new favorite. The Cajun Roll. She does not know what is in the Cajun Roll but she knows it is delicious and spicy!

For dessert my sister and I always get creme puffs. They are wonderful.

The Good:

** The Sushi is always fresh and yummy!

** The waiters and waitresses are always really super nice to kids.

The Bad:

** If you do not get there early, there is a long wait.
