As we say our goodbyes to 1788 Sandwich Bar near the first year residence halls, eyes are now on Pizza Hut’s new neighbor, Kikka Sushi. This fall Kikka Sushi opened up with a motto of “Sushi Made Daily.” At first look, I thought it wasn’t any different from Lair sushi, and like my peers, I was greatly disappointed at the change. However, much to my surprise, when I saw the menu, there wasn’t just sushi. They offer teriyaki bowls, various types of noodles, poke and a couple of vegetarian-friendly selections.

Personally, I was lured in by the poke, since it’s one of my favorite items. While it does lack the variety of selections you could get at a Japanese restaurant or a location specifically selling poke, there were still at least three protein options and a good number of vegetables. Though it is uncertain whether or not they will be able to keep up the momentum, I’m glad we now have a new option on campus, with a new Asian cuisine location that won’t disappoint. If you’re ever in the area around dinnertime, feel free to drop by Kikka, which opens only in the evenings till midnight (time varies from weekday to weekend). Whether it be a midnight craving or a hefty meal, Kikka is there to serve.
