- 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.
