Boston: Samurai


827 Boylston Street  Boston, MA 

After the Zoora launch at the Apple Store on Boylston, and after the recommendation of Samurai from some of the Apple employees, we ended up there, a tad daunted by it's basement entry and dimly lit interior.

However we were in the mood for Japanese and gave it a shot. 

Once inside, we realized the interior was rather nice and cosy and were warmly welcomed.

A disclaimer, we are not sushi conoisseurs; in fact, our tempura heavy selections may reflect that, anyway.  

Delicious miso soup, and splendid tempura sushi - I've never had this type of sushi before, where the whole roll is tempura-fied. Not realizing that it would be as such, we also ordered a massive tempura dish (also not realizing it would be so massive!). 

Great portion size and wonderful food. Our server was also top-notch.

Samurai is highly recommended by me, but see above.

I LOVE sushi + sashimi! I take it you don't fancy too much raw fish and seaweed or simply cold food? My dad's hatesss cold food so he's the only one who orders tempura when we go for japanese! Hehee. The tempura sushi rolls looks so it tasted amazing. 87% rating as well! Wished I was in Boston! x

Yes, it's the raw + cold aspect, I think. Although I can take a bit of the raw fish in sushi. I just can't eat too much of sushi before I tire of the taste - but these tempura ones were excellent!! The place is fusion-y, which might not work for everyone, but we had a good time.

I'll be in Boston next week. Am thinking of a dinner at Legal - the harbourside.
Any ideas on Hotels? Copley Square it a good choice?
And what about other great restaurants and bars..... so looking forward to the trip.
