Texas Restaurants~Ra Sushi

Ra Sushi is one of my sister's favorite restaurants for cheap meals in Las Vegas.  Mike and I realized that there was a Ra Sushi just a few minutes away from my work place, so we decided to check it out.  We went there for Ra's Happy Hour, which includes half-off appetizers and sushi rolls. There are also pretty good drink specials here too. 

Look at that huge scoop of wasabi!

This was my favorite appetizer. The calamari tempura (7.25--> $3.63). The squid is really soft, and only the body portion of the squid is served. I'm not a fan of squid legs. 

Grilled Shortribs ($7-->$3.50). Mike enjoyed these.

Viva Las Vegas Roll ($12.25-->$6.13). It's a crab and cream cheese roll, topped with spicy tuna, crab, and a fried lotus root.  This is my sister's favorite roll that she suggested Mike and I order. 

Crispy Spicy Tuna ($9.50--> $4.75). Mmm...deep fried rice balls topped with spicy tuna, a little piece of jalapeno pepper, and a spicy sauce.  I thought this was delicious, but I really like crunchy rice and spicy tuna, so I'd probably like any crunchy rice dish. 

Kaisen Ceviche ($9-->$4.50)-I'd skip this dish.  It was a little mushy and I think the seafood was cooked using heat, rather than with acid (lime juice), so it was not a traditional ceviche. 

Pork Gyoza ($6--> $3)

We would definitely eat at Ra Sushi again, and have gone back since the time I took these pictures.

at first I thought the wasabi was matcha ice cream!

Uh, why so generous with the wasabi?

Kat-You're right, it does look like ice cream!
M&DT-I'm not sure why they were so generous with the wasabi, but Mike did a pretty good job eating a lot of it.
Lori-Yup, the sushi is definitely worth it at those prices.
