One of my favorite places to fully indulge in all that is sushi is at Goro’s Sushi, located at 2619 Mossrock. When I first tried sushi I was in middle school. My friend bought a small case of “sushi” at HEB and after a couple spicy tuna rolls, I was hooked. I spent most of my years eating at sushi restaurants that I thought were amazing, and then one day I ventured into Goro’s after a long night and my sushi life was forever altered.
The rolls at Goro’s are no joke. They come piled high with shrimp, crab, salmon, anything you could possibly want, even seared tuna. For my first four to six visits I ordered the Three Amigos Roll – shrimp tempura, cream cheese and avocado wrapped with salmon and eel topped with spicy crab and seared tuna with green onion. What?! I didn’t even know sushi rolls like this existed in the real world! This was a roll I had only dreamt about. Once you experience no joke sushi rolls, you can’t go back to HEB or a subpar sushi bar. I’ve been a loyal Goro’s customer for over five years now and I’ve tried numerous rolls on Goro’s extensive sushi menu and my favorite is the UT Roll.
The UT Roll, that beauty sitting above these characters, is an inside-out roll with tuna, salmon, cream cheese and avocado wrapped with shrimp and topped with shredded crab and shrimp mixed in a special sauce. I’ll give you a moment to reread the ingredients.
From 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday through Saturday (closed Sunday), Goro’s has a great happy hour if you’re looking to get a quick sushi fix. The UT Roll and Three Amigos Roll still reign supreme at a relatively high price ($11.95 and $14.95), but California rolls, tuna rolls, spicy tuna rolls and others are $1.25 for three pieces. Nigiri sushi is also $1.25 or $1.75, depending on the fish.
If you have yet to enter the doors of Goro’s, I highly suggest you make your way over to this amazing sushi restaurant. If you have been, what’s your favorite roll?
