The Sushi at Walgreens Tastes Exactly As You'd Expect


Downtown Crossing's massive new Walgreens megaplex is open for business, and Boston magazine sent a brave taste-tester to the scene to sample their much-touted sushi. While the salmon was tasteless ("almost eerie") and the tuna was "metallic," the spicy tuna "really delivered on the 'spicy' part of the equation." In sum, "though the rice was gummy, the texture and flavor of the rice really wasn’t that bad." In fact, it ranks "above Trader Joe’s and below Whole Foods." There is also a wine wizard at this location. Sir, what pairs well with metal? [Boston, Earlier]
