Wasabi Express in Owensboro has a House Soup that’s flat out addictive.
Unless you’ve been to Wasabi Express in Owensboro, you have no idea how difficult this review is to write. You see, just the thought of their sushi, salad, and house soup are making me drool all over my keyboard. Seriously, this is some of the best food you’ll find anywhere.
I’ve always loved Ninki’s Japanese Restaurant, as well as the gorgeous Fuji of Japan restaurant in Owensboro (Seriously, I haven’t written a review of Fuji yet? What’s wrong with me?!). I actually had never had Japanese food until about 6 years ago – but I’ve been making up for lost time! Sushi is the food of the gods and I don’t mind telling you that you’ll never have better sushi than you’ll enjoy at Wasabi Exress.
Wasabi Express is sort of like Ninki’s Japanese Restaurant meets Fazoli’s. The food is just as delicious as Ninki’s (some would say more so lately), yet the service is extremely fast – like you’d expect in a fast food restaurant. The decor is absolutely gorgeous – you HAVE to check out the restrooms, whether you need to or not. They’re spectacular. Wasabi Express speaks to all of your senses. You have the ridiculously delicious food, beautiful surroundings, and (several times) they’ve had the most relaxing and beautiful Japanese music playing.
The sushi roll I get each and every time is the Kentucky Roll. I swear, it’s just the best thing ever. I also always get the House Soup (shown above). The fried rice is as delicious as any rice has a right to be – especially if you enjoy it alongside the Heavenly Yum Yum sauce. So good!
For an appetizer, I love to order Edamame, but we’ve been experimenting with a few other appetizers, and they’re always out of this world. Even Wasabi Express’ salad is divine.. the secret’s in the amazing dressing.
My oldest daughter and husband always get the White Boy Sushi Roll. I have to admit, it’s amazing, but you just can’t get me away from my beloved Kentucky Roll, so don’t even try.
As far as beauty and cleanliness goes, I give Wasabi Express a perfect 10. Taste and quality of food is also a 10. As far as friendly servers… well, it all depends on who you get!Ã?Â Some are friendlier than others, but here’s something we’ve noticed – the male servers are always uncommonly friendly and happy!
Wasabi Express is the perfect place to eat in Owensboro, whether it’s for lunch or dinner.
This is Japanese food at its absolute best. You HAVE to go to Wasabi Express as soon as possible. I know you’ll become just as hooked as I am.
I order the Kentucky Roll Sushi every single time, without fail. It’s THAT awesome.
Wasabi Express is at 636 Southtown Boulevard. It’s between Kentucky Fried Chicken and Game Stop.
