Are you tired of the same ol’ dinners? Want to spice up your dinner and try something out of the ordinary? Try an exotic date night! I recently went out to eat and my goal is to always eat something that I wouldn’t normally eat or try something that I wouldn’t normally cook. So far, for date nights I have tried the classic Italian, Chinese, Thai, but more recently I spiced up my taste buds with Sushi!
For An Exotic Date Night Idea Try Sushi
I now love sushi! It was delicious, yes some of the sushi is raw but there is some sushi that is cooked as well. For people just trying sushi out for the first time, I suggest:
- Tempura Roll- A roll of fish or vegetables that are deep fried.
- California Roll- The California Roll is usuall along the lines of cucumber, avocado, and crab. Sometimes the outside is rolled in fish roe or sesame seeds.
- Spicy Tuna Roll- Tuna is a happy medium, you’ve had it before cooked and know if you like it or not. Having tuna raw isn’t too much of a shock for your taste buds.
For the adventurous people that love a bit of spice! I honestly suggest what I had for dinner in the picture above.
- Dragon Roll- In the middle is the Dragon Roll which had teriyaki chicken, jalapeno, avocado, cucumber cilantro and chili sauce, wrapped in seaweed and rice.
- OMG- In the upper part of the picture is OMG, which is spicy tuna and tempura. It’s a shrimp roll topped with seared white Tuna, Garlic, Olive Oil, and Radish Sprouts, wrapped in rice.
- Unagi- The lower right is Unagi! Which is grilled Eel sitting comfortably on rice and wrapped in seaweed.
All sushi comes with a side of ginger and wasabi. I personally don’t like wasabi as it’s too intense and spicy for my liking. A little goes a long way when you add it to any of your plates!
Have you ever tried sushi? Do you think you will try sushi for your next exotic date night? If you love eating sushi, you can also take a class to make sushi! A few places offer couples sushi class or you can get the whole family involved. They can be a bit pricey depending on location, so check with your favorite savings website for discounts.
Note: Every sushi place has a special rolls and different ingredients, but even on the menu there was a note that said they were willing to adjust ingredients or if there was other Japanese cuisine you knew that wasn’t listed on the menu to just ask your waiter.
