When I tell friends and family that I love sushi, most of them scrunch up their noses and wrinkle their foreheads at the thought of eating it.
Sad thing is, most of them haven’t tried it or base their opinions on one bad experience. For people who enjoy the adventure of eating sushi and those who approach it with squeamish depredation, the delicious and numerous offerings at Shilla Teriyaki & Sushi Bar will delight all selective taste buds.
The pleasantly decorated Japanese-style restaurant, just east of Placerville along Highway 50, provides friendly and courteous service. The menu contains a multitude of sushi varieties, including a scrumptious Christy roll (my choice for the evening) – filled with fried shrimp, tuna and avocado and served with the traditional wasabi and pickled ginger condiments. All quality ingredients tasted deliciously fresh and arrived at the table looking equally appealing.
Other tempting menu options include a dill and salmon roll, a spicy, deep-fried tuna roll, and the Hangtown roll (made with cooked shrimp, crab and scallops). Sushi choices range from a simple capa maki (cucumber roll) to uni, a nigiri-style sushi consisting of raw sea urchin. In addition to sushi delights like Singing in the Rain, The Lion King, Golden Dragon and Crazy Monkey, Shilla also serves up an assortment of other Asian-style entrées like beef teriyaki, shrimp tempura, sesame chicken, Thai red snapper and BBQ albacore (a customer favorite). Along with a choice of mouth-watering appetizers, Shilla offers wine, beer and its special homemade strawberry and orange sake.
Open daily (except Tuesdays) with outdoor seating and takeout, it’s no wonder this family-owned and operated eatery is a local favorite.
