85. Amber Roll at Orange Roll and Sushi

Orange Roll and Sushi is the first place I ever had (and fell in love with) the Japanese meal. The dive is sleek and always hopping, and of all the rolls they offer, the mysteriously named Amber Roll is rightfully their best seller.

The comforting warmth of the shrimp and rice is the first thing that greets your mouth. Sweet, crunchy tempura crisps follow, melting on your tongue with all the ease of a snowflake. This Amber Roll is all about contrasting textures and flavors—crunchy, soft, sweet, creamy—and nothing complements the roll better than the saltiness of soy sauce and the spice of wasabi.
