AVONDALE, Ala. (WIAT)– We took a trip to Avondale this week to an unusual food spot! Wasabi Juan’s is somewhat new to the area and already getting a lot of buzz.
“I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like it,” Houston Bendall, a local having lunch, told us.
So what is “unusual” about this restaurant? It combines two ethnic foods into one — Mexican and sushi! The owner, Barbara Toro, and her family incorporate their heritage with their love for sushi…and inability to use chopsticks!!
The sushi is rolled up like a burrito. It’s a fun way to eat sushi and especially kid-friendly! You pick the contents inside and get the fresh chips and salsa to top off the meal. Click here for a link to the menu.
Wasabi Juan’s is already expanding. A new location will be coming to Hoover this year!
