The new shino

r_walid Jan 7, 2008 09:13 AM

Did anyone here used to go to the shino BEFORE they made the new changes to the prices and imposed brown rice in everything?

If you tried the shino before and now, what do you think? do you think they did a good or bad thing? what are the things you used to like and hate now and before?

    I've tried both. I like the old one better (especially because it's cheaper).
    I like brown rice, but I don't like it with sushi. The rice isn't sweet enough and a bit hard and not sticky enough. I'd still go for their dollar nigiri, though not the maki.

      Brown rice sushi?! I haven't been to the "new" Shino, I hope they still have the $1 uni, ikura, and yellowtail. I wouldn't mind being able to get a beer or saki there.

        Yellowtail is still $1, unagi, uni and ikura are $2

          Why would they make this change anyway? I'd always thought that Shino was a good traditionally-leaning (and cheap) sushi place. This is (a little) like the Legal Seafoods chain choosing organic soft shell clams from elsewhere over Essex clams.
