One afternoon a big group of us were downtown and craving some sushi. We figured why not stop by Hana Cafe and take everybody through a visual tour of the sushi restaurant downtown.

For starters, we ordered an array of fried items like crab rangoon and eggrolls. We had different salads as well as pot stickers. This was a great beginning to the meal for us. Everybody had a little something they loved. My personal favorite was the seaweed salad.
Next up had some bulgogi dishes, ramen, pork dishes and LOTS of sushi!
Let’s start with the downer. The ramen was fairly bland and needed something to jazz it up. It was a little on the flavorless side. Everything else went up from there. One friend enjoyed his bulgogi dish noting it was a good portion size and delicious. He said it wasn’t as good as some of the other competitors in town but worthwhile for his stop.
The overall favorite of the day was the sushi and part of that might have been by default. I wish I grabbed the name of every roll but didn’t; I’ll blame it on the sake. Some rolls were really loved by all while others felt they were average by comparison.
Admittedly this was a very poorly thought out review. It was all done at random and unanticipated. After an afternoon of drinks, Hana Cafe sounded like a good deal. The appetizers was a big hit for everybody but from there, people were lukewarm or really loved Hana. It was a mixed crowd for us but that’s always going to be the case with many sushi restaurants around town. Everybody has their own favorite. Certainly this is a place to try for yourself to see what you think.
