One of the rolls - can't recall the name

At anywhere in the world, Japanese restaurants are fairly easy to find. I would say Japanese cuisine is well-liked by most. However, many that say that they love to eat Japanese food, actually mean cooked Japanese food i.e. rolls, cooked meats and not the sashimi that most Asians love.

Except for the major cities in the U.S, the Japanese restaurants that you find, say for example in Portland, are average standards. It can be above average standards but not spectacular.

Sinju is known for their rolls. Dragon rolls, mango with prawn etc etc. They come in ginormous portions and are pretty delish actually. We ordered quite a few with a couple of sides to share. The sashimi here was not too bad, the chirashi that someone ordered turned out to be huge! Check out the amount of fish for that! It wasn't too expensive either.

The next time I visit Sinju, I think I will order the rolls! My favorite was the Ahi tower which was a mix of tuna (not a big fan but this one was good!), rice, mayo, avocado and the works.
