Sei Restaurant in Washington D.C. has quickly become my favorite sushi place in The District. Giving a new edge to Japanese food, SEI goes beyond making traditional plates, it creates original dishes that left me speechless (wasabi guacamole as an example, from now on I believe guac should only be served with wonton chips rather than tortilla chips).
We started our night with the previously mentioned guacamole that had the perfect touch of wasabi spice, and the shrimp tacos that were delicious. For our entrées we shared the crunchy roll and my personal favorite the sundried tomato roll, of course it had to be my favorite on top of the sundried tomatoes it had truffle garlic ponzu, definitely unique and memorable; we also decided to order last minute the salmon bowl when we saw it on someone else’s table (glad we took this decision, because it was amazing).
On top of the delicious dinner and wonderful ambiance, the cocktails were to die for. We had the Asian Pear Sangria, and the Hello Kitty (it had a cute Hello Kitty drawn on top). Needless to say we didn’t have space for dessert but hoping to go back soon for more.
