Enjoy the best seat for Sushi at Kamiza

Kailey.jpgAbout three months ago I developed in insatiable craving for sushi that to this day has still not fully stopped. When the Fens and Shaws just isn't enough, I have found a sushi safe haven with Kamiza Japanese Cuisine. One of those hole-in-the-wall places, Kamiza had only about a dozen tables, but was mostly empty on the Tuesday night I visited.

The wait staff was friendly and attentive and the place itself was clean and comfortable. If you aren't up for a trek to Washington Square, you're in luck; they also deliver and are open late. When my hankering returned the other night, this was the option that my partner and I went for. We started with Gyoza, a steamed vegetable dumpling that was for the most part rather flavorless. While the warmth it provided was a welcome change from the sushi, it was not a dish I would get again. However, once we started in on the sushi, the flavors started perking up. We started with the Crazy Maki, which had a nice crunch to it from the shrimp tempura. The briny flavor mixed well with the avocado and cucumber, letting the flavor linger a bit longer.

Bartol: Your personal refrigerator

Bartol Soup for the Soul

Look no further; members of the Residence Life staff sat down to share their Bartol tips, secrets, and favorites! "It's all about being creative," said Kailey Denzer-Weiler. Leigh Viscomi agreed with Kailey, adding, "I think just simply considering how you can combine foods from different stations to get what you want is the best way to go. Also, I always remind myself to think about the sauces that are available to spice the foods up a little." Jess Faulk's advice is to use Bartol like a personal refrigerator, "You never feel like you are short on options as long as you think of Bartol as one big kitchen/refrigerator that you can put together whatever you please." Thinking outside the box is key to creating your own Bartol specialties!
