Brunch Outside the Box at Ra Sushi

Ra Sushi BrunchWhen we attended the Sushi 101 class at Ra Sushi we learned about their new brunch menu. While it wasn’t something being offered to us as part of our event we knew we had to try it! When it comes to brunch, we tend to like the more savory options. Ra’s out of the box brunch offerings definitely intrigued us. Ra Sushi has “taken traditional brunch items (eggs, Bloody Mary, sausage and bacon) and mixed in our Japanese flair (wasabi, sake, rice, tuna tartare) for a completely new twist on brunch, RA style.”

The menu features:

Bloody Mary Roll: Ra Sushi’s chef’s took all the ingredients that top the RA Bloody Mary (shrimp, bacon, celery, asparagus, tomato, cucumber) rolled in nori and rice and topped with Sriacha mayo.

Tamagoyaki: RA’s spin on a Japanese omelet, with bacon fried rice and a soft baked cracked egg; topped with soy butter sauce, green onions and crumbled bacon.

Smoked Salmon Tamago Roll: Tamago is a form of Japanese omelet, and RA pairs it with delicious smoked salmon, asparagus and rolls it in nori and rice and top with tobiko, ending up with a fantastic sushi breakfast roll.

Premium Bloody Mary: The traditional brunch drink—RA style. They start by infusing our Bloody Mary with wasabi, and then add Ketel One Vodka, Sho Chiku Bai Nigori Sake and crushed cucumber. We’re not even close to done until we drop in a skewer of shrimp, bacon, celery and asparagus, wrapped in cucumber, topped with olives and tomato.

Ginger Mimosa: For those who would rather have a fruity drink to start their Sunday our twist on the classic brunch drink is made with ginger orange juice and finishes with sparkling wine.

As if 2 rolls of sushi and a piece of nigiri from our Sushi 101 class weren’t enough, we decided to try the Bloody Mary Roll, a Ginger Mimosa, and the Premium Bloody Mary. While the drinks were good, the real stand out was the Bloody Mary Roll. We are always hesitant when trying sushi rolls that are not traditional because typically gimmicky foods aren’t very good. However, the Bloody Mary Roll was fantastic! The flavors were great and each ingredient really stood out.

What is really great about Ra Sushi’s brunch menu is that while it has components of a traditional brunch, it is anything but traditional. Brunch is served on Sundays from 11am to 3pm. We’d love hear about your favorite brunch spots! Leave us a comment below with your favorites!
