One of the healthiest fast food trends is sushi, sometimes it seems a sushi restaurant is popping up on every corner. I recently dashed into Go for Sushi on Merivale for a quick lunch. After ordering at the counter, I sat down to bask in the bright and sunny modern dining area.
As soon as one piece of my order was ready, it was brought table-side. First out was the miso soup, which was cloudy and bland. The Alaska maki rolls were a touch too large to fit in my mouth in one bite, but the rice was firm and the shrimp was fresh. The spicy shrimp rolled fresh to order contained a delicious combination of spice and texture. I also ordered their mixed vegetable tempura, but was disappointed with the panko breading and greasy result.
Although the portions are large at Go For Sushi, I would go for sushi at another sushi bar.
