Last night, I ate until it hurt at Golden Bay Japanese Restaurant, a hole-in-the-wall sushi place at 3811 W. 13th St. that people have been telling me for months to check out. I’m glad I did, because it was delicious. I’m writing a review of the restaurant for this Friday’s Go! section.
But while visiting, I learned of a sushi deal that was so good, it’d be irresponsible of me to wait another second to share it.
When patrons at Golden Bay buy one special sushi roll — a fancy chef’s creation such as the Rainbow roll — they get a more basic roll for free. The special rolls tend to cost $9 0r $10 apiece, but each time a customer orders one, they can choose from one of four more basic rolls, such a California roll or a delicious sweet potato roll, and get it free.
And the basic rolls at Golden Bay aren’t that basic. They’re pretty substantial, and one of the choices — a deep-fried roll called the “Western” — is pretty complicated. Last night, we ordered three special rolls but had six rolls of sushi, and all of them were great.
Many thanks to the several readers who urged me to check this place out. I’m looking forward to writing the review.
