Without intention, I had the pleasure of enjoying a weekend full of Asian cuisine.
The Weekend: Asian Edition began with a perfect lunch at Raw, a Japanese restaurant in the heart of the Gayborhood at 12th & Sansom. I enjoyed the amazing company of my business partners/great friends (& a little one that kept extra big smiles on our faces). Raw is certainly a great deal for lunch with their Bento Boxes running around $14. I opted for the Tuna Bento, featuring:
(8) piece Spicy Tuna Roll ~ (2) pieces of Tuna Sushi ~ (2) Cucumber-Avocado Rolls
(2) Crab-Cucumber Rolls ~ (2) Shrimp Shumai
Green Salad w/ Carrot-Ginger Dressing ~ Vegetable Tempura ~ White Rice
Seems like alot, but that’s not all!
It also came with a tasty Miso Soup, which I loved & am not typically a fan of.
While 3 of us got variations of the Bento (vegetarian & eel boxes looked great too!), Kelley opted for the Binny Roll: Shrimp Tempura & Avocado Roll topped w/ Spicy Tuna, Eel, & Spicy Sauce. All of my favorite sushi items in a one roll!
