Food and Culture - Kinjo Sushi & Grill Edition
For our second FDC 100 Food and Culture class, we arrived at the newest location of Kinjo Sushi & Grill on Millrise. Kinjo has a lively environment making it a good setting for large groups and families. As an employee of Kinjo, there is even a list of 11 Kinjo songs to memorize in order to “make customers HAPPY”. Although the trademark Kinjo antics may give me a scare, I can understand the appeal of Kinjo with its reasonable prices and variety of offerings.
During the night, we were treated to dishes from the Party Set Menu:
- Miso soup (miso paste, tofu, green onion, seaweed, fish powder)
- Fish roe (flying fish roe, smelt roe, salmon roe)
- Seaweed salad (seaweed, lettuce, tomato, strawberry, avocado, sesame seed, house salad dressing)
- Oyster with ponzu sauce
- Sushi (salmon, tuna, shrimp, smoked salmon)
- Assorted rolls (volcano, California, spicy salmon, dynamite)
- Tempura (shrimp, vegetable)
- Ikageso (deep fried squid)
- Chicken katsu (deep fried breaded chicken cutlet)
- Spring roll
- Magic steak
- Teriyaki chicken
- Sauteed assorted vegetables
Of course, a night at Kinjo is not complete without a complimentary box of strawberry Pocky!
