Wasabi Sushi in New Orleans, LA

Wasabi Sushi
900 Frenchmen St.
New Orleans, LA

the front

Frenchmen St is known for being on the hipster side and so the food is usually pretty remarkable. This place, however, was not.


I did like the decor. Bit more trendy then most Japanese restaurants but hey, this is Frenchmen St we’re talking about. I had heard terrible things about the service here but I guess since I was the only customer, the service was alright.

wasabi honey shrimp

I almost ordered this as my main dish, I’m glad I didn’t. The shrimp had a weird taste and a rubbery texture. I’m not sure where the weird taste was originating from…..

Wasabi House roll

The wasabi house roll had creamcheese and crab with salmon and eel with crunchy flakes on top. This sushi roll came with a wasabi sauce that was a little too strong for my preferences. Overall, I didn’t think the quality was that great and this place just did not agree with my palette at all.
