Hooked on Sushi: From Specialty Rolls to Japanese Curry

March 3, 2015 4:38 pm

If you're craving great Japanese for an affordable price, then head over to Hooked on Sushi in Carlsbad, a relatively small restaurant with a huge menu. Not only are rolls unique and fresh, but so are traditional Japanese curries, noodle dishes, tempura, salads, bento boxes, and sake.

Start off with the Monkey Balls, also known as deep-fried mushrooms stuffed with spicy tuna, or the jalapeno poppers filled with ebi, spicy crab ,and cream cheese. The baked green mussels offer another satisfying start to your meal. Patrons rave about the Mexican's Gone Wild Roll, filled with spicy tuna and cucumber and then topped with Albacore tuna, avocado, diced shrimp tempura, spicy mayo, jalapeno, eel sauce, and special "crunchies." Locals also love the Homeless Roll—shrimp tempura and cucumber inside and avocado, soft shell crab, eel sauce, and spicy mayo outside.

With more 37 rolls and many other dishes from which Hooked on Sushi customers can choose, picking just a few will be your biggest challenge.
