Sushi Groove can best be summed up by the title of the restaurant. They offer sushi and they offer some groove in the form of live music or a D.J. Sushi Groove provides some delish flavors and cool atmosphere located off of Highland up in the Mill Creek area.
The menu gives you a good sense of the selection of Sushi Groove. Obviously the cuisine centers around fresh rolls, sashimi and nigiri, but also has various drink and dessert options to go along with your meal.
I’ve settled into an ordering pattern when trying out sushi places. I like to order a number of different nigiri options along with a specialty house roll. Sushi Groove had a lot of good options to choose from. My favorite here was the tataki maguro and the sake. Both tasted great. Be sure to check out the menu board under the fresh cuts section to see what is in stock.
I went with the Groove Roll for my main entrée. I like spicy and crunchy flavors and textures for my rolls, with a few different types of fish. This one was perfect. It had albacore and marlin along with tempura crunchies, avocado, and mango.
This dessert was freaking nuts! Don’t come here without trying it. They take nutter-butter and oreo cookies and tempura them up and fry them. I held steadfast to the believe that you absolutely cannot partake of aOreo cookie without milk. The body just won’t allow it. I was wrong here. The tempura cookies were amazing, and then they add a banana, ice cream, and hot fudge to the bowl. All the yummy flavors combined together to form a sinfully delicious concoction. Not going to think about the caloric intake from this plate.
Sushi Groove was a cool place. I enjoyed sitting at the sushi bar and conversing with the owner ans sushi chefs. Reminded me of a sushi version of Cheers. The customers all looked like they go there often. Loyal and repeat customers are a pretty good sign. If you want to try them out for the first time, Tuesday’s are “$2.50 Tuesdays” and a perfect time to sample their wares at a low price.
