Osaka Sushi, May-June 2012

Do you live in Northern Virginia and feel the need for some excellent sushi?  Look no further than Osaka Sushi in Annandale (6669 Little River Turnpike).

Osaka is hidden out of the way on Little River Turnpike (Rt 236).  The sushi is top notch though, so it’s worth a little drive to get there.

A selection of nigri, along with an order of spicy tuna roll.

…and some of the special rolls.

Foby’s Roll…

…Jerry’s Roll…

…Reggie’s Roll.

Here’s some special roll recommendations:

  • Foby’s Roll – A variation on its lighter cousin, the Salsa Roll (California Roll topped with tuna, avocado, and pico de gallo), this one adds a spicy tempura crunch to the toppings.  This one is probably my favorite of the bunch.
  • Jerry’s Roll – Tuna, ginger, jalapeno, and cilantro roll, with salmon and spicy mayo on top.  This one is a little lighter due to the lack of tempura crunch.
  • Reggie’s Roll – I’ve been told this is the most popular roll in the house.  It’s a shrimp tempura, avocado, and cucumber roll topped with salmon, avocado, tempura crunch, spicy mayo, and sweet eel sauce.  Very tasty, but it’s also a heavy roll…probably the equivalent of getting two rolls elsewhere.

I’d recommend going with two of their special rolls to complement some lighter nigiri or sashimi (the super white tuna, seared tuna, or salmon are all good picks).  Going for more than two of the special rolls will quickly fill you up.  Add a glass of plum wine…I’ve always found the refreshing sweetness complements sushi very well.
