If I Close My Eyes Forever...

If I do close my eyes forever, will the taste go away? That's how I felt after eating the disgusting sushi my wife and I decided to eat at Kami Japanese Steakhouse and I'm thinking Ozzy Osbourne himself would think so as well. I would even guess that someone like Ozzy would "stick a dagger in it!"

Lets start with the name... I mean really, Japanese steakhouse? It should read, Kami Swamp Water Sushi & Some Other Food! My wife and I really do enjoy sushi and we've had sushi literally all over the Twin Cities. We've found some great places, good places and down right disgusting places. Kami just so happens to be one of those disgusting places. When our sushi rolls arrived to our table, the first thing we both thought was something was smelling a little too fishy and after my first bite, it was apparent that this place decided to shop for their fish from some supplier that gets its product from the bottom of a swamp in the backwoods of some forest in Minnesota.

For those of you who enjoy sushi, does it bother you when you order sushi and when you pick it up, it falls apart? Yeah? Me too! Seriously, who taught some of the sushi chefs out there, particularly Kami's how to do sushi rolls? Time to find a new career if you can't roll a simple sushi roll correctly...

As for the rest of their food... Well, if you like your steak to be a little more like chewing gum, you'll enjoy their steak, so how they think they're a steakhouse is beyond me! The chicken however wasn't all that bad with a lighter batter and you can never go wrong with a little edamame.

If you want some decent sushi, stick to places like; Saji Ya on Grand Ave., Asia Bistro in Woodbury, Kyoto Sushi in Eagan or Seven Sushi & Steakhouse in downtown Minneapolis. If rotten fish is your thing, have fun at Kami and maybe you'll want to try a place like Sushi Tango in Woodbury and elsewhere or Osaka Sushi in Richfield.

I know I've been so hard on you, and these are definitely not lies and I don't need any wishes to wipe the tears from eyes for how terrible this place really was! :) I have a feeling this place is going to remain unchanged, so I'm just going to take Ozzy's advice and close my eyes and forget about this place...
