Walmido – CLOSED

Rating: Two thumbs up, solely due to the yakisoba
Date: 6/17/12
Time in: 5:39 PM
Servers’ recommendations: Miko roll, seafood yakisoba, nigiri and happy hour rolls (because they’re super-cheap!)
What we ordered: Miko roll, seafood yakisoba, avocado roll, California roll, spicy scallop roll, seared tuna nigiri, salmon nigiri
Number in our party: 3 (with Sarah M.)
Final check amount: $57.38
Price per person: $28.69

NOTES

  • There is apparently a Korean menu we didn’t get to see!
  • The yakisoba is the best we’ve had on Convoy, and we’d come back just for that.  The seafood is a little fishy to Jenne.  Sarah and I found it fine.
  • The salmon nigiri was decent.
  • The seafood pancake was giant, expensive, and not very good.
  • The edamame was cold and unsalted — double-fail.  Although maybe we shouldn’t complain, since it was free.
  • The rolls tasted good — lots of avocado, lots of crab, and lots of spicy!  But they were so deformed!  We had to laugh at how lopsided they looked.
  • The seared tuna was truly terrible.  It might have been blow-torched?
  • There’s a longer wait than I’d like between dishes.
  • The water is room temp, which we didn’t find enjoyable.
  • The server and the sushi chef were very handsome.
  • The server boxed up the leftovers for us, which we always appreciate.
  • Walmido has a very pleasant atmosphere–it looks much nicer inside than outside.
