One of my favorite types of food to eat is sushi, therefore it would only be appropriate if I tried the new sushi establishment, Hiko Sushi, in Eagan, Minnesota.

Given that sushi is Japanese, it would only apropos if my entire review was done in my favorite form of poetry: Haiku. As a refresher from your grade school years, a haiku is typically a three-line poem, consisting of 17 syllables, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second and the remaining five syllables in the third line. Now I won’t get in to the technical details here of what makes a Japanese haiku versus a Western haiku, but the haiku poem is perfect for me in my poetry.

From the moment we arrived to the end of our meal, Hiko Sushi was a pleasant surprise for a suburban sushi restaurant. Granted, we do have an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant just down the road from Hiko Sushi, but we were game to try this new restaurant.

Hiko Sushi is located is located at 1466 Yankee Doodle Road in Eagan, but you can simply visit them by going to their website here. We started our meal with a couple of appetizers, most notably the Salmon Skin Salad for myself. My two lads opted for one of their favorites, the Cream Cheese Wantons.

Our main meal consisted of the following:

  • Chicken fried rice, sans the vegetables (sans is a fancy word for without);
  • Spicy tuna rolls (2);
  • Salmon cucumber roll;
  • Crazy Naruto roll;
  • Acura roll;
  • Spicy tuna sushi; and
  • Tuna sushi.

Although I recently attended a “How To Make Sushi” class at Cooks of Crocus Hill, tonight we were just in the mood to try Hiko Sushi, without being overly critical of our newly found sushi making skills. Our total bill, before tip and tax, came to approximately $97.00, which for how much we ate and how many leftovers we brought home, was about the same price had we gone to the all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant nearby.

We will definitely be back to try Hiko Sushi again, so without further ado, here is my review in haiku:

Loved Hiko Sushi.
Tea for two four for tuna.
Four-and-a-half stars.
