Sansu – East Lansing
Thursday night after the Westboro Baptist Church counter-protest, myself and two of my friends went out to dinner at Sansu Japanese restaurant in East Lansing. We didn’t go there much when I was actually a student since it was pretty far away from our dorms and seemed more expensive than the closer Japanese restaurants. The prices didn’t seem that bad this time (maybe they’ve changed?) or maybe I just have more money now than when I was 18. They seemed normal for the same type of restaurant in Ann Arbor.
This was my first time attempting to eat vegetarian at a Japanese restaurant. It was hard not to just order the eel and avocado roll (the eel sauce is all I want really…). Yes, I am ignoring whatever is used in the broth for the miso soup. There is probably dashi stock in it, but LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU. I was very surprised to see green veggie gyoza, but they were very good… although I think they were deep fried and not pan-fried like I am used to. The egg sushi was very good (although there was probably dashi in that too). I was really happy about the grapes and oranges (?) with the gyoza, they made a nice little dessert instead of having to order anything else.
