Anyhow, the first dinner was Wild Ginger on 116th Street in Fishers—the kids were totally into it, I have to say. They loved the origami crane light fixture (a cool idea) and our table in the window (the place is certainly kid friendly). They split an order of chicken teriyaki and I ordered a roll and a couple of orders of nigiri to split with my son.
The roll I had there was the “mistake roll” ($7) which was spicy tuna inside and then the entire thing is lightly tempura fried. There was also spicy mayo drizzled on top. Honestly, I didn’t really care for it that much mainly because all I could really taste was the rice and the sauce. The amount of the spicy tuna inside was very minimal, and the amount of rice certainly dominated. I appreciated the crunch on the outside, but overall, there wasn’t enough of a fish (or really anything else) flavor to make it interesting for me. The couple of pieces of nigiri ($4.75 per order) were kind of mixed too—I liked the albacore with the ponzu citrus sauce that is served under it (although I had to ask for it even though it is listed on the menu), but the fish on both orders of nigiri was not as tender as I would have liked—it seemed like it might have been sliced awhile ago or something.

Of the two, I certainly preferred the Wasabi roll, although they are so different, it is really unfair to even compare them. I would be willing to try either place again, although Wasabi is much more convenient for me. I do think it tends to be a little on the expensive side. So what are your favorite rolls at these places?
