To celebrate my new job, Alex took me out to a local sushi restaurant called Akai Hana. Maybe it was because I haven’t eaten sushi in months. Maybe the fish had magical gills which extract dissolved oxygen from water and convert it into happiness. Whatever the reason, I left with a ridiculous joyful smile on my face.
We ordered a Rainbow Roll (tuna, salmon, and avocado) and a Caterpillar Roll (eel and avocado) with Gyoza (dumplings) as an appetizer. The Caterpillar Roll is even decorated as a caterpillar. Adorable, yes? There’s something about raw fish that makes life so much better. If ever in Columbus, Ohio, do yourself a favor and eat here!
