Wagyu aburi maki (and friends)
“I cannot express how good this sushi is without asking our editor whether I’m allowed to use the term ‘sushicalifragilisticeexpialidocious’. Instead I’ll give you a play-by-play of the events:
Grim Thursday that has the audacity not to be Friday. Evoke ‘I deserve this’ delivery clause I have instituted with myself whenever sad. Begin browsing the folder of apps on my phone entitled ‘Burgies et. al.’. Charco Charco? You’re new here. Hello. Japanese, you say. Okay. Order a rainbow roll, fatty tuna nigiri, and some wagyu aburi maki. It arrives and, my my, they’re quite the lookers. First bite and I say ‘sushi’ outloud to an empty room. I eat it all in one beautiful sitting. There’s soy sauce on my laptop. I am so happy that I put on some Metronomy, because actually, I quite fancy a little dance now. Thursday continues with slight post-dance indigestion and happy sushi mems.
This is the best sushi I’ve had since the pandemic began, but that slightly seared wagyu maki is the best I’ve had. Ever.”
