Sushi Samurai is Perfect for your Sushi Outing


Off the busy street of Orchard Lake lies an average looking building in a sea of average looking strip malls. Yet surprisingly enough, like a rare and precious pearl hidden in an oyster, there is a hidden treasure within its doors: Sushi Samurai.  

When I first walked through the restaurant’s old, wooden doors, I was enchanted by the colorful walls, lego ships, and sushi themed décor. The staff greeted me and sat me at a table.

The pleasant smell of ginger, sushi, and miso soup overwhelmed my senses as the server handed me a menu. Not knowing what to order but craving something with a kick, I asked for recommendations.

The server listed a delicious variety of spicy rolls, from which I finally chose the Samurai Crunch and the Atlantic Roll.

While waiting for my meal to arrive, my waitress gave me a sample of Sushi Samurai’s special “Kani Su”. This is a cucumber salad with crab and sweet vinegar. Although it may sound simple, its sweet yet tangy flavor remains unparalleled in this area.  

My pupils dilated as I saw my waitress carry out my sushi platter. A vision in seaweed, I must say… faultlessly presented with the perfect fish to rice ratio, and a Sriracha and spicy mayo mixture to top it all off. It was all so picturesque that for a moment, I debated not consuming the perfection that lie on the plate before me, but naturally, I could not resist.

So I recommend that you swim over to Sushi Samurai, 4143 Orchard Lake Road, West Bloomfield Township, MI 48323. You most definitely will not be disappointed.
