With bright red walls and zen-like decor, I relaxed into my seat hoping Watawa lived up to my Gainesville favorite, Bento. I love you Bento, but I think I've found a new love in Watawa's sushi rolls.
The presentation was delicate yet fun and the sauce added a nice sweetness to the dumplings. The dumplings weren't what I expected, with an almost cake-like texture and juicy shrimp center I wanted far more than five of them.
All of the fish was extremely fresh and the flavors went surprisingly well together. The crisp asparagus paired well with the creamy avocado, while the wasabi mayo added a nice heat to the dish.
After practically licking my plate clean, I took a to-go menu. You better believe I fully intend to become a frequent customer.
