David (Adopt-A-Pet) Backes Roll - this one has a small spicy kick thanks to Sriracha, under several layers of flavors. This roll is a pile of many ingredients, including salmon, avocado and tuna. It's topped with colorful tobiko (small fish eggs), for extra texture. If you like California rolls, you've probably had and enjoyed tobiko in the past - I'm certainly a fan!
Stan-The-Man Roll - One of my favorites, this roll has a collection of juicy ingredients making a very flavorful roll. It's packed full with shrimp, cream cheese, mango, crab and a slightly spicy orange sauce. To top off perfection, a sprinkle of black tobiko adds very enjoyable texture.
Spicy Tuna Roll - no surprise by the name, this one has a kick! The Sriracha topping will really clear out the sinuses. What did surprise me about this one was the strong avocado flavor!
Oh My God Roll - While it makes a scene on the way out of the kitchen (I mean, it's on fire after all!) it wasn't my favorite flavor once the flames go out. Even thought it was delicious, there are juicer, more flavorful rolls I would choose first.
Sex and the City Roll - This one was a happy balance of crunch, spice and chewy scallops.
White House - Compared to all the other complex rolls, this one was a bit underwhelming. It's a good choice when you're looking for a safe, simple roll, with only 5 ingredients: spicy tuna, asparagus, white tuna, ponzu sauce and eel sauce.
Sassy Roll - Truly living up to the name, this roll has a fresh salmon piece topped off with that same sweet syrupy sauce I loved. It was also topped off with some fresh green sprouts that gave it a slightly bitter bite at the end.
Lobster Roll - As the most expensive roll on the menu (a whopping $28 for the one-roll platter), I was expecting to be really blown away. I didn't dislike the roll, but I was still a little disappointed. The lobster was a tough chew, and there was a crunch from the tempura.
Needless to say, we have never had to deal with leftovers at Tani.
