My husband and I aren’t exactly what you’d call adventuresome sushi eaters.
As long as the words “fried” or “tempura” are involved, we’ll eat it. Other than that, we’re open to trying stuff, but have yet to really acquire those fresh-off-the-boat taste buds.
Luckily, Twin’s Sushi in Cameron Park has plenty of options for people like us. Twin’s, which has been open for five years, looks completely brand-new and has a very welcoming atmosphere and accommodating staff. I enjoyed looking at their picture frame-style aquarium while waiting for our food. But, does anyone else find an aquarium in a sushi restaurant ironic?
For some reason, I never learn my lesson that sushi is quite filling and always order way too much. This trip was no exception. We started our meal with an appetizer of Gyoza, and I was thrilled to discover Twin’s offers both steamed and fried varieties. I tend to prefer the steamed version, since I always order rolls with fried components. For our entrées, we went with two of their special rolls: the Twin’s #1, featuring deep-fried shrimp and snow crab topped with shrimp and avocado, and the Green Valley, which was similar with deep-fried shrimp and avocado. I absolutely love all of the sauces that accompany many rolls, so when I heard Twin’s offers a “magic sauce,” I was eager to try it. Both of our rolls came with this truly enchanting sauce. The only drawback? There wasn’t nearly enough. Forget soy sauce, I would like extra “magic sauce” on the side, please.
There isn’t an abundance of sushi restaurants to be found east of Folsom, but luckily Cameron Park has one worth checking out.
