I had a rare day shift at my WCCO-TV job yesterday, so I wandered the snowy streets of downtown Minneapolis looking for something to eat. After about three blocks of that craziness, I headed to the skyway. And boy am I glad I did.
Inside IDS, on the skyway level, I found the fairly new restaurant One Two Three Sushi. It’s like the Chipotle of sushi: made to order sushi rolls, where you select your ingredients.
I picked white rice (not brown), yellowtail (there are four raw ingredients, eight cooked, two vegetarian), and fillings of avocado and kaiware (radish sprouts).
I topped it with Screaming Thai sauce (which didn’t taste all that screaming at the time, although 20 minutes later my lips are still pretty hot—go ahead, insert your own joke there), and crispy fried onions for some crunch.
I have to say, I loved it. Love the concept, the simplicity, the speed, and the taste. I got a huge sushi roll for $8. For just $2 more, I got edamame and a soda, which was a steal. $10 for a lunch that made me very happy.
We’ve made burritos, falafel, now sushi fast-casual. What’s next?
