Tell me what I am REALLY eating!

So, I just went to a sushi joint and ordered the Lobster Roll. Well, what I thought was a Lobster Roll, it was very delicious indeed. Then, the waiter comes back and was like, "How was that?" I reply, "Delish!" He then told me I just ate crawfish. Why do restaurants do this? I don't mind that it was crawfish because it was very good. But, own up and say it is crawfish and don't fool your customers! So weak, in my opinion. I will step off my soap box now....

How much did it cost? The reason I ask is that I hate when something is just expensive enough to make you think it might be real lobster and then it turns out it's crawfish or langostine.

I dont know what kinda meat that is, but it is not crawfish. I have read a few of your sushi posts and you have to make sure the chefs are Japanese. Not Korean or Chinese. They dont have the same discipline, technique and most importantly....cleanliness. I real Japanese sushi chef apprentices for many years under a sushi master. They make rice for 2 years before moving on to the next step in the career!

A lot of those rolls are Americanized. Try to find an authentic sushi restaurant and I think you will love it. The first sign of a "fake" sushi restaurant is when they feature rolls above everything else. "Volcano Roll, Dragon Roll, Flame Roll, Jazz Roll, Mr J Roll, Philadelphia Roll, etc" All that kinda garbage is BS!

Here is an example. Its one of my favorite places and I did a review on it in 2005. I still go there

Maybe they meant to call it a "Cajun Lobster!"

Pulled Porker - it was $6.50 for two pieces. That was a stock photo I used because before it was eaten I had no idea of the drama that was about to unfold!

Hmm, that is right in-between. If it had been a $3 roll I would have said no way it's lobster. If it had been $10 I would have said it better be lobster.
