Soy Noodle House had me try sushi



Soy Noodle House is a blend of Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisine. It’s located Downtown which means I had to give it a try. I’ve never tried sushi before and I’m not a fan of seafood so this experience was interesting, to say the least.

The Breakdown

As you can imagine, I was anxious to try sushi for several reasons. First, I had no idea what to order since this was my first time. Second, seafood gives me major “ick” vibes. And finally, sushi can be served raw or undercooked so I was afraid of the small chance of ordering something that might make me sick. I ended up trying their Spider roll which contained fried crab, cucumber and rice wrapped in seaweed. Yeah, I really went all out.



I didn’t really enjoy the roll. I think it was because of the crab just not doing it for me. My teammates that accompanied me all enjoyed their rolls, but I could get into mine. I tried a second piece of the roll without the crab and I liked it a lot better. After this experience, I can confirm I’m not a seafood person. But I’m glad everyone else had positive things to say and they finished my roll for me.

I decided to try the Firecracker shrimp next. It was amazing. It was perfectly fried and tasty, but not like any fried shrimp I’ve had before. Shrimp is probably the only type of seafood I could order and enjoy. I was really impressed with this. I also got a little bit of their fried rice which was a perfect side for the shrimp.



How to get 5 stars

I think it would be helpful for newbies like me to have photos of a few items on their menu. Our server was amazing and she certainly helped me feel normal not knowing what I was doing ordering sushi. She was friendly and timely and got 5 stars from me.


I would go back here soon to get more of the shrimp, but I might wait a minute before I try sushi again. I think the veggie rolls are more suited for me.



Where should I go next?
