Like just about everything in the world, eating out has gotten more expensive. With this in mind, the words all-you-can-eat sounds especially intriguing. Edgewater Mall’s new sushi joint, See-Wee-Roll offers just that.
At lunch time, diners can order as many rounds of food as they want, choosing from various options including yakisoba, traditional Japanese appetizers and, of course, sushi.
The cost? Just $15.95
The restaurant is new and clean. On one side of the room, the sushi chefs can be seen working away behind the bar. The rest of the restaurant is lined with wooden booths and tables. I arrived around 11:30 a.m. on a Wednesday and they were very busy busy.
Upon being seated diners are given a piece of paper with all the food options, you then check off what you want to eat, and it is brought out to you. They do have a fee for any uneaten food, but a waiter assures me that they are lenient with that as long as you are not wasting an excessive amount of sushi.
I started with miso soup, a shrimp tempura roll and one piece each of tuna, salmon and crab nigiri.
The soup arrived first and was a nice way to start the meal.
The sushi arrives all at once and is well prepared. The shrimp tempura roll is freshly made and large. The rice in the sushi is just flavorful enough to not overpower the texture and flavor of the fresh fish.
For the next round I order a spicy tuna roll, and a piece of shrimp and red snapper nigiri.
Since we are on the Mississippi Coast, the red snapper was especially fresh and tasteful. The spicy tuna roll was possibly my favorite of the dishes. Just spicy enough — but not overpowering that it burns off your taste buds — the tuna offered a lovely texture and was nicely rolled.
Despite the traffic at the restaurant being somewhat brisk, my server Gavin was attentive, friendly and prompt.
In all, See-Wee-Roll offers an expansive all-you-can-eat menu at a fair price in a convenient location at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi.
