Spotluck Spotlight: Sushi Rock

Sushi Rock

If you love sushi and classic rock by themselves, chances are you'll love them even more when they're together. Enter Sushi Rock, a modern sushi joint right in the heart of Arlington's Courthouse neighborhood.

If you're still hesitant about rock n' roll sushi, check out some of the must-try items below: 

Light My Fire Roll

Sushi Rock’s most popular roll for years running! This crunchy shrimp tempura and avocado roll is crazy good, and has a bit of a kick to it from the spicy tuna, aioli, and sliced jalapeno. Crunchy tempura flakes top it off and give the roll it’s signature look.

Braised Short Rib 

We know Braised Short Rib might not be your first thought when you think of sushi joints, but that's about to change. It will melt right in your mouth (9 hours of slow cooking marinated beef will do that), and pulls apart with chopsticks easily. Trust us, you’ll start coming back for this stuff alone.

Spicy Scallop and Cucumber Roll 

This tasty option off the classic rolls section of the menu is light and crisp, but flavorful. The tobiko and spicy mayo definitely add some bonus kick to round it out.

Small Sashimi Set

Balance out the heavier rolls with these colorful slabs of salmon, tuna, yellow tail, and white tuna. It's a nice complement to a bigger specialty roll or entrée.

Proud Mary Crab Roll

This house-recommended favorite won't disappoint! Crispy fried onion chips with old bay seasoning top off this delicious roll filled with avocado, salmon, and tender crabmeat; it’ll leave you wondering why Sushi Rock doesn’t go ahead and open up a location in Maryland already.
