We visited the recently opened Hayashi Sushi, located at 5341 Highway 17, Unit G, H, and found ourselves to be the only customers there for a while. The reason for this, however, is the secret isn't out. Yet.
Formerly known as Charlie's Studio Cafe, this place now has a husband-and-wife team crafting fresh, picture-perfect sushi rolls to order. Sorry, there's no hibachi here. Straight sushi menu. But as you will see, these offerings are superb and worth your dining in for the night. Or lunch. They offer their satisfying creations from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
For appetizers, we had the Gyoza (deep fried pork dumplings served with gyoza sauce) and the Money Bag (cheese, crab meat and vegetable wrapped in wonton skin, deep fried with sweet chili sauce). Both were fresh, fried perfectly and tasted great.
The sushi roll menu is extensive. There's something for every sushi lover here.
Our choices were Tuna Roll, Alaska Roll (salmon, avocado, cucumber), Philadelphia Roll (smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese), California Roll (crab stick, avocado, cucumber), Foxy Lady Roll (spicy tuna, avocado, topped with tuna, served with chef's special sauce), Volcano Roll (tuna, salmon, yellowtail, crab meat and avocado inside and chef's special sauce on top), Samurai Roll (salmon, tuna and yellowtail topped with avocado) and the Rainbow Roll (tuna, white fish, salmon, white tuna and avocado on top of a California Roll).
These rolls were presented in fine detail and came in two portions, the biggest presented in a "Titanic" sized ship.
Enjoy the photos and stop by. You'll enjoy the tastes and the service. And then the secret will be out.
