Dining critic candidate No. 7

I recently came across the "Ai Sushi" restaurant off Centennial Blvd.
I found the menu selection to be exciting - "Samurai Roll", "Salmon Lover" and definitely the "Heart Attack".

I ordered a "Rainbow Roll", tuna sashimi and a "Heart Attack".
The "Rainbow Roll" is a variation of the popular "California Roll", a "reverse" roll with crab meat, topped with fresh ahi and yellowtail tunas, salmon, shrimp, and avocado. Simply made to perfection.

I was blown away by the "Heart Attack". Jalapenos stuffed with crabmeat and tempura deepfried, cut lengthwise in halves and teriyaki sauce drizzeled on top of it. Sweetness from the teriyaki and immediately followed by the spicyness from the jalapeno - a heartattack? No, but almost to die for . . .

The ambiance, service and cuisine culminated in an experience beyond my expectations.

I've had Sushi in several countries over 2 continents but "Ai Sushi" is absolutely one of the best I have ever been to. I am confident sophisticated sushi connoisseurs will love it and sushi newcomers will be treated to a memorable first-time experience.

Good food detail, not enough atmosphere commentary, excessive usage of quotes. Review needed additional length to do the restuarant justice.
