In Café this week, we sampled the "Crazy Irishman" at Soma on Washington Avenue -- one of the wildest looking sushi rolls in town. It's one of the spiciest too. The roll contains salmon, tuna, and avocado which is all wrapped in green soy bean paper and then flash-fried. The crispy roll is then topped with fish roe, sweet sauce, green onion mayo and fiery Sriracha mayo. There are white stripes of mayo and orange stripes of Sriracha mayo zig-zagging across it with chopped scallion and roe protruding outward in bizarre knobs. Save this one for last--it's so hot you won't taste anything you eat afterwards.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
