Growing up in Yakima, there was only one place I knew of that had sushi on the menu. Fortunately, we live in a time where we have several places now and they're all pretty terrific in my book. Each place has standards and features rolls and styles unique to that restaurant. One place in town is Kobe Sushi and Teriyaki. They have a great menu of items like chicken teriyaki, yakisoba, legit ramen (nothing close to top ramen) and lots of sushi. Because it's their namesake and I love to order whatever that place has specific to that restaurant I ordered the Kobe Roll. I'm glad I did.
What is a Kobe Roll?
From their menu:
Osaka style pressed sushi with crunch, spicy tuna, spicy salmon, avocado, tuna, salmon, white tuna and special sauce.
It sounds like a mouthful, and it is. I had to go full detachable jaw to pop this in my mouth but it was so worth it. Everything worked so well together.
The main reason we wanted to order this to try wasn't just it sounded amazing (which it was) but the fact it contains white tuna. Now if you're wondering what white tuna is, it isn't.
Yes, there's no actual fish called a white tuna. It's escolar which is a rich, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth type of fish that many sushi places just call white tuna. It's not featured on a lot of sushi menus but when it's available it's something we order.
And the addition of white tuna in this Kobe Roll makes it all the more awesome. With the added kick of the spicy tuna and spicy salmon it's about the perfect bite for every bite of this special roll.
If you find yourself at Kobe Sushi and Teriyaki, consider ordering a roll for yourself.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
