Edwardsville IL Homes for Sale and Real Estate : Goshen Gourmet: Welcome Wasabi to Edwardsville

Goshen Gourmet: Welcome Wasabi to Edwardsville

Those of us who enjoy Japanese food know that a little wasabi -- that firey green horseradish-based condiment that comes with sushi -- goes a long, long way.

That's not the case with the restaurant called Wasabi -- with popular outposts located on Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis and in Clayton's central business district. Just a little bite there leaves you happily wanting more and visiting again and again.

The Goshen Gourmet is happy to report that Wasabi will be opening a restaurant in Edwardsville, Illinois in October. (Note the photographic evidence from the Goshen Gourmet's spy satellite on this page.) 

The sign is on the door of the new plaza at the corner of Buchanan and Vandalia, across from the Library and park on the west and St. Boniface on the north. CVS and Buffet City are neighbors in the plaza.

Those who don't embrace sushi (yet) will enjoy the restaurant's Bento Boxes -- little trays that offer beef, chicken or shrimp with rice and sauteed vegetables.  Tempura, tasty fried tidbits of meat and vegetables, also is available.

Wasabi has been named St. Louis' favorite sushi bar by the readers of Sauce Magazine. Learn more here.

That's exciting.  I love when new restaurants make it to our side of the river.  It just goes to show that you don't always have to go downtown to find a great experience.  Many times, it's right here in our own backyard.

Wasabi in Edwardsville was Excellent the first few times we went.  After that the sushi was not as good anymore. and they messed up our order trying to keep us from getting all the sushi we ordered although we paid for it....
