If you read my OTHER blog recently, Chris' Corner, in the KC Restaurant Guide (http://kcrestaurantguide.blogspot.com/2015/05/sushi-fans-or-not-unite.html#.VV-Y2KbbKUk), which I'm sure you did, you read about the origins of sushi (really Chinese) and how Richard and Theresa Ng planned to have sushi at their Plaza location the minute they started planning to move to the Skelly Building.
So one of the books my book club read for this month was The Narrow Road to the Deep North by Richard Flanagan which won the Mann Booker prize. That should have warned us. In this possibly-most-depressing-book-I-have-ever-not-finished, the majority takes place in Thailand where the Japanese are using Australian prisoners of war to build a road through the rain forest in WWII. Their only food is a tiny rice ball a day. So my mind says -- rice -- I should have sushi, really probably nigiri, for an appetizer.
I take my plate down to Bo Lings and ask Salvador to fix something up for me. Boy, did he! Salvadore used to be Kubuki in Crown Center and has a devoted following and I know why. His selection was beautiful and delicious! The pile of fresh ginger was generous, there was more than enough wasabi, and the fish was so delicate, so fresh, it melted. You should try their sushi bar in the Plaza.
Book club loved the sushi, if not the book.
