Green Eggs and Ham sushi at Kikyo

Shelley Mann, Columbus Alive

Gotta love the sense of humor on Kikyo's menu. Among the awesomely named items is this, the Green Eggs and Ham sushi roll, featuring hamachi (the "ham," which is yellowtail) and all sorts of green-colored goodies, including cucumber, avocado, wasabi tobiko (the green eggs) and wasabi mayo.

A few more of my favorite Kikyo sushi roll names:

Captain Crunch: shrimp tempura, avocado, masago, crunchy topping, eel sauce, spicy mayo

Holy Crab: Soft shell crab, cucumber, cream cheese, spicy mayo, red tobiko, chili powder

Hot Mess: Salmon, avocado, cream cheese, spicy crab, masago, tobiko, tempura crunchies and ALL the sauces

Kikyo is also the only place in town where you can feast on Japanese-style tater tots. They're sprinkled with Yukari, a zesty Japanese seasoning that's usually used to flavor rice, and served with a spicy mayo dipping sauce. And they're pretty addictive.

They're served as an appetizer or alongside a variet of Asian-inflected burgers (like a Bulgogi Burger with Korean barbecue sauce and Asian slaw).
