Fin staff yelling friendly Japanese jibberish at you when you walk in: check. Yelling indiscernible obscenities back at them because you don’t know what just happened: check. Loud pop music: check. Sushi chefs actually speaking Japanese: check. Mochi ice cream: check. THE MOST SURPRISING AMAZING TASTEBUD ADVENTURE SINCE MOVING NORTH OF 635: CHECK!

My friends, I would like to share my new favorite sushi restaurant with you: Fin Sushi & Sake Bar. Let me take you on my culinary dinner tour. We started off with edamame which came in a cute little bamboo basket that reminded me of the Sally Struthers Save the Children commercials.  My ONLY complaint about the meal was that the edamame was a wee too salty.  Oh well it will help me float.  Huh?

Next up was the Ahi Tower.  Whoever invented this should get the Nobel Peace Prize.  Or at least be President.  Or have a Portuguese Water Dog named after them.  Our waiter went to great strides to make sure the ingredients were fully mashed together and formed into the shape of a heart, despite Jason’s desperate attempts to get him to do a Tyrannosaurus Rex.  He’s so romantic.  Fin’s Ahi Tower tasted a bit creamier than the Tower at Blue Fish or Sushi Masu but it was a good creamy.

Let’s get to the best part.  They had FOB sushi.  And I mean that in every offensive way possible as long as you get the point.  Some of the freshest fish I’ve ever tasted.  We had the MFK roll, the Spider roll and the Hawaiian roll.  I typically wolf down sushi so fast that I completely miss the first and second trimesters of the sushi baby forming in my tummy.  However, the rolls at Fin were meant to be savored.  I took time to carefully dip into the wasabi (Japanese for guac) and then let my mouf try to guess the mystery ingredients.  The presentation of the sushi definitely got 5 points for plating.  I mean check the pics below…America’s got talent.  The Hawaiian roll even had a “rose” of sashimi salmon!  Morimoto made a frickin rose out of salmon!  What made the meal even better was that every time someone walked in we got to yell along with the staff to welcome them.  HEEEEEEEEEYYYYYY WAAAASSSSAAAABBBBBIIIIIIIII.  It was like having a surprise party for strangers!

This is the point when the waiter hands us our bill.  But we had a little surprise for him.  Still fungry!  Bring on the dessert menu.  Don’t mind if we do have tempura ice cream and an order of mango mochi ice cream.  What’s that?  The tempura is enough for two?  You must mistake us for weaklings.  We’ll have both.  GOOD MOVE.  See the Yogen Fruz post for a quick lesson on mochi.  Imagine mango ice cream wrapped in an albino sour patch kid with slices of strawberries to flavor punch you in the six pack you just acquired from eating like a champion.

No, not mocha, mochi.  There is nothing chocolate about glutinous paste.

Note: Fin is located in a shopping center on the northwest corner of Windhaven/Tollroad near the never popular wildly ballsy “Which Wants”.  The center is still under construction but don’t be alarmed.  Fin is open and ready to rock your world.

Nice! I like the edamame baskets, so adorable! I really want to try this place now. I’m also going to sign you up for Slim4Life.
