Allison Day


If you haven’t already seen it, go check out our Sushi Day store over in the left-hand navigation! So far we only have the Sushi Day shirts, but we may be adding more stuff later depending on how well the shirts do.

This is another one of the tuna rolls that we made oh, about three months ago. Behind? Who, me? Okay, fine, you win. I am waaaaaay behind in my sushi posts, and I’m not done yet! We still have a bunch more tuna rolls left to post! I know what you’re thinking, “Maybe you should post more often Allison!” Yeah, I know. I should. What with me graduating in a few months and trying to make sure I have all the right classes I need to graduate and trying to figure out what’s going to happen after I graduate, I have gotten a little behind in my posts. Time has been going by so fast! I guess that’s what happens when I’m busy. I post something and before I know it, more than a week has gone by and I still haven’t posted something new! Oi. Oh, and happy belated Valentines Day! In case you are wondering, Son didn’t get me flowers or chocolates or jewelry or anything like that. No, it was MUCH more exciting. He got me cookbooks! 😀 He knows how to make me happy hehe.

    BTW- enjoy the teas! 🙂

    🙂 Thanks! I don’t have much in the store yet (as you can see, only the shirts) but I’m hoping to expand soon!

    This actually sounds kinda delicious.
    I’ve not had a lot of tuna though, so…
    I think I need more experience.

    Haha awww I want to live in the same area as you 🙁 this looks good! Why no story about the origin of the name tho? 😉

  6. Allison says:

    Well, if you are ever in the LA area, let me know and I’ll make you some sushi! I have absolutely NO idea where the name came from. Anyone know?

  7. kelley says:

    Just want you to know that this roll was originated at Maschiko, the best sushi restaurant in Seattle. This I know because I’ve been going there for years and the Red Violin is my favorite roll. In fact, I’m making it tomorrow. Did you know this?

  8. Allison says:

    I didn’t know that… thanks for the information! 🙂
