45 degrees

So I went to the coolest restaurant today for lunch. It was a Sushi restaurant called 45 Degrees. It's off of Mass Ave. They have really good lunch specials....which is why we went.

For Just $7.95 you get 1 roll ( 8 pieces) and soup or salad. I got the California roll with crab, avocado, and cucumber. I also got the Miso soup. This was interesting because it had little chunks of tofu and seaweed. I didn't hate it but next time I think I will opt for the salad. There are 6 different types you can choose from (which are typical salads) I went with two gals from work and one got the California roll with a nice summer salad and the other got the vegetarian roll with Miso soup. I tried the vegetarian roll because it has everything I love... avocado, cucumber, scallions, sprouts, and asparagus. The only thing I really didn't like was the big piece of seaweed wrapped around the rice. It was a little tough and chewy. But hey, that's seaweed for you. :)

Overall I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the sushi roll was great, the price was fantastic. I would definitely go back.

Oh did I mention they had these cute little soy bottles. I will definitely be purchasing some at the store. Now I just need a couple of good recipes to go with them.


  1. That is such a chic looking restaurant! I would love it for the environment alone!

  2. I tried the 45 degree salad with spinach leaves, mandrin oranges, cranberries, almonds and feta paired with a cranberry ving. dressing.....and it is way better than the soup.
