It seems like recently there’s been an influx of sushi restaurants and general interest in sushi in Wichita. I’m sure the influx of restaurants is directly correlated with interest. Or… Vice versa? Doesn’t matter, I suppose. I just want to disclaim this review by saying I’m not a sushi connoisseur. However, I can tell you what I like. I’ve eaten at a couple of different Wichita spots: Hana Cafe, Tsubasa, Bonefish Grill, and even Dillons. No, I haven’t made it to the elusive (and westside) Kanai. But there are plans in the works. Hey, I’m an eastsider, and I hear Kanai’s REALLY busy. So it sounds kind of exhausting to drive across town to stand in line to eat. Especially when there’s such a good spot near my house. Hey, good transition, Kelly. I know, right? Thanks!

Reaching out. Touching me, touching you. Sweet spring roll. Bah! Bah! Bah! Good times never seemed so tasty. So tasty! So tasty! So tasty!

I first heard about Tsubasa through a few articles on kansas.com. The first one talked about the growing popularity of sushi in Wichita, and included Tsubasa in the list. The second one announced the restaurant getting ready to open, and this time didn’t just mention sushi but also mentioned sashimi and Japanese noodles. So my perception was I was going to walk into someplace similar to Sakura, Hana Cafe or Kanai. I was wrong.

After my dinner at To Chau, I thought I’d like to try to make spring rolls and drunken noodles (in an attempt to use up some of the red Thai dragon peppers I’m growing). I wandered into Lucky Market and hit the jackpot. Who knew such places exist in Wichita? Well, I knew there were Asian markets, I just had no idea they were so big! (That’s what she said.) Fair disclaimer: Most packages are prominently in languages I don’t speak/read, but if you take time to look there’s also English.
