Sushi - Crab without a "k"

Does anyone know what Sushi restauants make their rolls with real crab? I keep finding "krab" and mayo and they are horrible.

  1. I think at a lot of places you can pay extra for real crab. Places like Tokyo Lobby, Hana, Sushi Eye, and the like might have it. I haven't been to a lot of the sushi places in the EV, so I can't say for those.

    1. Had a sushi lunch at Kona Grill at Chandler Fashion Square mall today, and the California Roll was crab.

      1. I can tell you that Hana Sushi (on Union Hills and 7th Ave) has Krab Salad (with Mayo). I am equally turned off by this, but knowing that, I will order differently next time.

        1. According to Hana's (7th Ave & Missouri) site, they have crab. That is to say, they spell it with a C. I don't know if that means in fact, it is crab.

            If I didn't already have plans to hit Tradiciones for lunch on Friday, I'd go to Hana to sacrifice myself in the name of research. :)

                We'll all be pulling for you. :)

                God forbid someone just CALLS them. Much more fun this way. :)

          2. Hiro in Scottsdale uses real crab. They ask if you want real or immitation when you order.

              Geez, just KNOWING the answer takes all the fun out of it. :) Thanks for the tip, though. I've almost gone there numerous times, but always get sidetracked.
