Wasabi (Daniel Island)




I love sashimi, raw and dipped in sauce. I can go for the occasional sushi too (rolls and/or anything made with vinegar rice). But tonight, I wanted to eat BIG at Wasabi on Daniel Island. So I ordered Buddha's Belly. Completely makes sense, right?
Buddha's Belly (Spicy Tuna, Snow Crab, Salmon, Yellowtail, White Fish, Avocado, Cucumber, Cream Cheese, Tempura Style, Eel Sauce)
I also had the Wasabi House Salad beforehand, just in case the Buddha's Belly didn't do it's job. Ok, enough with the fluff, let me review.
The Bad: This was the case that I thought I could order everything I wanted and place it into one roll. But I lost out on my preference of tasting fresh, raw, virgin fish....untouched by other flavors and textures (except soy sauce and wasabi of course). 
The Good: Buddha's Belly dish was good, don't get me wrong. But what I consider heaven in your mouth is their Toro Aburi (Blue Fin Tuna Marinated in Black Truffle - Soy Then Lightly Torched, and Garished with 24k Gold). Yes, honestly, it is a treat, will melt in your mouth. I will never forget it. Also, the ambiance at Wasabi is nice. The walls around the bar area were raised tonight, opening to outdoor seating, with live music. 
In Conclusion: For sushi/sashimi lovers....you will really like this place. For california rolls people (without raw fish), you will like this place too.  And the ambiance just adds to the experience.
