Each week, one Ann Arbor staple menu item becomes a battlefield
as Daily Arts staffers butt heads over which restaurant makes it best.
Dear Christina Aguilera,
What about us?

Totoro's California roll doesn't just
consist of rice and seafood - the res-
taurant has succeeded in rolling plenti-
ful amounts of awesomeness in its most
delectable sushi creation as well. With
its delicate crab meat, its light, crunchy
cucumber slices and all those sesame
seeds sprinkled on top, there's no doubt
that this is a roll that would make the
Golden State proud.

Sometimes it's all about the little extras.
At $3.69, the California roll comes in eight
pieces with orange smelt roe slathered
on top. If you're seated on the right-hand
side, you might be able to see one of the
sushi specialists preparing it. At the end
of the meal, your check comes with a
sucker. Because, while those little extras
are important, you did justspend less than
four dollars for your meal.

With Sadako's California roll, you'll
first be struck by some silky-smooth avo-
cado, followed by a refreshing morsel of
crab meat and finally the crispy-crunch
of thinly shredded cucumber. After you've
completed that foodgasm, you might
notice a few gummy grains of rice strag-
gling on the roof of your mouth - but
when it comes to quality sushi, that's the
least important ingredient.

No contest. Ayaka has the best Cali-
fornia rolls in town. With the perfect
crab-to-cucumber-to-avocado ratio, this
concoction melts in your mouth on the
first bite. And, if you like, the right amount
of soy sauce and wasabi makes this maki
roll truly a wonder. But the sushi's own
merits (i.e. no added accoutrements) are
enough to leave you full and satisfied. Plus,
the restaurant's got great mood lighting.

Cute commercial! Still waiting on my check.
