On the flip side of last entry’s bargain find, here’s a tip for what not to do at the famed Nobu restaurant chain if you’re a poor college student: order sushi.
Two rolls for $20 may not seem too steep, considering it is such a highly-appraised Japanese restaurant, but really, the portions were meager and the taste nothing special.
If you’re going aiming for $20 or under, there are several options on the cold and hot dishes menu (try the sashimi salad, if you’re craving raw fish, I sampled a friend’s, and it was delicious), although the portion sizes are really tailored for ordering more than one item.
Then again, if you’re aiming for $20 or under, why eat at Nobu?
Note: bad marks for the waiter who kept nagging us with a “Is that all you’re going to order?”…we’re college students, not investment bankers.
