Landlocked Sushi

I love going to Arizona. I get to see my best friend.
It's hot and sunny.
 Best of all I get to eat at Ra.
They have the most delicious menu of sushi treats I have ever seen.
I know I live in Seattle... on the water...where all the seafood is fresh by the hour.
So you would think Sushi in Arizona isn't the best idea, but after trying Ra,
 I think you would change your mind.
Their menu is Japanese Fusion and the flavor combinations are amazing.
It is not your traditional sushi.
PLUS they have Happy Hour Mon- Sat!
So we got all this for $40.00.


(Spring roll & wonton slightly eatten already )

Indulge.

Here is what we ate:
PINEAPPLE CHEESE WONTONS

Lightly fried wontons filled with cream cheese, scallions & pineapple;
served with a roasted pineapple dipping sauce

LOBSTER SPRING ROLLS
Lobster mixed with mango, cream cheese & mild peppers, wrapped in wonton paper & lightly fried;
served with a mango sauce

VIVA LAS VEGAS ROLL
Kani kama crab & cream cheese rolled in rice & seaweed, lightly tempura battered & topped with spicy tuna, kani kama crab mix & sliced lotus root;
 finished with a sweet eel sauce & spinach tempura bits

MANGO LOBSTER ROLL
Lobster mix, avocado & cucumber rolled & topped with thinly sliced mango;
served with mango tobiko & kiwi wasabi sauces

CRAZY MONKEY ROLL
Smoked salmon, mango & cream cheese topped with avocado, red beet tempura bits & cashews;

TROPICAL ROLL
Cucumber, mango & avocado rolled & topped with spinach tempura bits,
