Dish: Danny Deco Roll, $14
Where: Flying Fish, 815 King St., Alexandria
Taste: Named after Flying Fish’s first (and former) sushi chef Danny Simmavong, the Danny Deco roll doubles the tuna, with the pink fish both inside and outside a ring of rice. Avocado contributes to the richness, tobiko (fish egg) brings a briny tang and fried tempura bits—and a mound of crispy potato straws—add crunch. Forgo the soy sauce and dip the Deco into a house-made creamy, tangy, sweet and spicy sauce decorating the plate.
