A little while ago, my roommate and I went to see One Republic and The Script in Boston’s Seaport District after work.
The venue was so gorgeous – right on the harbor, with sailboats floating by, and both bands were so amazing in concert!
The concert venue on the harbor reminded me of a great sushi restaurant that Nick took me to not long ago. Genki Ya is a quaint little sushi joint located just off of Boston Common.
I ordered my go-to sushi roll, which is the Caterpillar Roll. The caterpillar consists of avocado and flying fish roe on top of an unagi (eel) cucumber roll, and served with eel sauce.
Some sushi restaurants put more effort in than others to really make the roll take on the life of a caterpillar. Genki Ya clearly falls into this category, adding eyes, ears, and even a tail!
We also ordered the Salmon Tempura Roll you see in the back – with blow torched salmon, spicy crab, flying fish roe, tempura flakes and spicy mayo served with eel sauce.
The pretty roll you see in the front is the Salmon Avocado Roll. Simple and sweet!
I love the simple touch of the brightly-colored flowers on our plates. In my opinion, little garnishes like that make all the difference in presentation and experience.
The concert in Seaport and this pleasant sushi experience encapsulates two things that Boston is great at: fun events and seafood. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
