Eating and exploring our way through the world

Sticky Rice? Not this time.

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on July 5, 2009

A little over a year ago, the Husband would have proclaimed that he was a sushi hater.  This was quickly changed during a trip to Richmond, VA. Friends of his from college took us to Sticky Rice, an eclectic sushi joint famous for their unique sushi concotions and a bucket of tater tots as an appetizer.  When we learned that they had opened a location in DC, we were eager to check it out when we were in town since we rarely get to Richmond.  Fourth of July weekend was set to be our chance to visit.

Friends met us at our hotel in Arlington and we headed into the city by car.  (We had debated whether to take the metro or drive but it would be a good distance walk and potentially not in the safest neighborhoods to get there).  Upon arrival, we were glad we drove and even happier that there was valet parking at a local martini bar as we were nervous about parking on the street.  We dropped the car off and headed on into the restaurant.

Unfortunately, when we walked in, we discovered an incredibly tiny restaurant.  The hostess asked if we had a reservation, but we didn’t.  We were told it would be an hour to an hour and a half wait.  The group discussed our options outside.  With so little to do in the area for an hour to an hour and a half and having a beggar come up and ask us for money while we discussed, we quickly decided this neighborhood was not for us this evening 😦 So we got our car back and headed back to Arlington.

I think the Husband and I will try to head back out there some other trip to DC, but it won’t be on our priority list.  Perhaps our next chance will be another trip to Richmond again.  When we do, I’ll be sure to share wonderful pics of the delicious rolls and tater tots!!
