famima ... alot of rice
well, almost choked on all the friggin rice they clumped in the sushis.
had the 7$ nigiri combo: meat is a bit thin, and the rice is overpowering and real sticky, almost like they mixed it with glue. nigiri was somewhat tasteless.
and a $2. spicy tuna handroll (which had a really tiny amount of meat in there, in a big cone of rice, and a crappy seaweed - paper-like quality. ) really disappointing.
i'll stick to the Ralph's sushi... at least i can taste the meat, and they also put a little bit of lemon or something which gives it an extra better taste.
this was not my experience at all, i ate at the one in pasadena, you?
rice was fine amount; meat was better than i've had at sushi gen and quite large pieces. in fact, i ate the tune piece with no rice because i wanted to see how it would stand on its own. quite respectable.
blows any i've ever had from ralph's away.
fwiw, i think it's impossible to consisder sushi boxes from teh same chains as the same product. that food is so individual it's all up to the individual making it, not the brand of store, even if the instructions and standards are supposed to be consistent.
so i would always recommend saying which famima you think is good/ bad; which ralph's/ TJ's etc. (this in relation to thread about rating box lunches
Too bad...I was looking forward to the Glendale location.
Although I too eat Ralph's sushi far more than I should admit, for really good boxed sushi, I like Fish King in Glendale (huge, fresh spicy tuna roll for only $6) and Bristol Farms (good selection, half rolls available, even sashimi).
