Where do you meet a sister staying in Annapolis? You need an in-between kinda place, like Bowie! I even told my sister about how it's BOO-ee, not Bowie like David.
The Yelp on this was mostly good, with a few not-as-positive, something about when the switch occurred from hole-in-the-wall sushi joint (good) to pricy "bistro" with the renovations (not as good).
The seaweed salad was delightful.
My sister had the Tum Yum Goong soup, a spicy lemongrass broth with shrimp, knotted noodles, and baby bok choy.
Roll-wise, we shared the Alaska (salmon, avocado, cucumber), the Dragon (eel, cucumber, avocado), and the Spider (crab, cucumber, scallion). The Spider was big and crunchy, probably the crowd favorite. But I could also eat any eel roll all day long. Mmm, slithery.
We liked it! The service was a little iffy--I was asked if I wanted anything to drink before I opened a menu, so I said I wasn't sure yet. The server returned about 5 seconds later to ask me again. Also, he kept asking me if I wanted more water then going away with my glass for a while. Come back! Thirsty over here!
I know almost nothing about most out-of-Beltway eats, with the exception of some Annapolis fare. But you have to take risks, you know? Also, Bowie Town Center has tons of stores and stuff, so some pre- or post-sushi shopping is definitely in order. Dairy Queen makes a fine dessert.
