The flavors of this roll work well together for us, with a slight lean to the sweeter side. The shrimp is super fresh and well-cooked. The seaweed salad and cucumbers are nice and crispy. However, the roll does not work as the vehicle to serve this sandwich; our bread was a little too hard and crusty, and far too messy to enjoy eating.

We would have preferred this be served on a pile of yakisoba noodles or wrapped up as a spring roll. The menu also says that this sandwich is served with a wasabi mayo, but we didn’t get that flavor at all, and mostly tasted eel sauce as the condiment. The garlic chips were great, as always.

Yuzu Bread Pudding – $7.29

The bread pudding at Aunt Cass Cafe doesn’t usually disappoint, and this is no exception. No one in our group was a fan of blueberries, but we ate this entire serving. The bread pudding itself was delicious; lightly crispy on the outside and super moist and soft on the inside. The lemon curd was just sweet enough, and the acidity of the lemon cut right through the heavy bread pudding.

Our serving also came with a hefty portion of whipped cream, but it tasted light and airy. The blueberry compote tasted like a combination of raspberries and blueberries to us, and we thought it paired with the other flavors at play. This is a very large dish, and we think it’s well worth your money for the price and easy to share.

Yuzu Lemonade Coffee – $6.99

We only award points to this cold brew because it is served in a Baymax cup. This drink does not sound great on paper and, unfortunately, is also disappointing in practice. We would rather not have lemonade mixed in our cold brew. The acidity of the lemonade and bitterness of the cold brew just do not work together here.
