Restaurant Review: Sushi Love Boat Kaisen

We tried another sushi place in Temecula the other day. I have seen Sushi Love Boat Kaisen pretty much every day for the last year since it is located on the main highway home. We finally decided to stop in and give it a go. First I just want to say the service was spectacular during our visit. We were seated promptly and given a bowl of edamame on the house to enjoy while we perused the menu. After placing our order the waitress brought over two spicy crab salad hand rolls complimentary from the sushi chef. I don't know if this is typical for this restaurant but in any event it was a pleasant surprise. I did not get a picture of the temaki as we quickly gobbled them up. Yummy! Our order followed shortly after. 

First some Ikura because Penelope always orders this at any sushi restaurant we go to. Next I ordered this Salmon Skin Temaki.

I love salmon skin, especially when it is fried to a crisp as this was. It had a semi sweet glaze on it and the roll was stuffed, no skimpy rolls here. Delicious!

The Dragon Roll, a mixture of crab meat, avocado and cucumber and then topped with a whole piece of fresh water eel, was really good.

The Chef Special Roll, tempura shrimp, crab meat, avocado, cucumber and radish sprout topped with spicy tuna. This was also really good, the spicy tuna had the right amount of spice and each maki piece was loaded but did not fall apart when picked up. The itamae here knows how to roll some sushi. I also thought the sushi was the perfect temperature, cold but not too cold and everything tasted fresh. They offered us complimentary oranges after our meal which we declined because we were full but as we saw them being carried out to another table Penelope was disappointed that she had not said yes. It was an orange halved and topped with whip cream but the presentation made it appear like it was more. She did however accept the large individual Poky stick that was given to her upon us leaving. We will definitely be coming back!
