I have to admit it — when Jennifer, a work colleague in Charleston, W.V., called me to suggest Thursday evening that we go out for sushi, I didn't know what to say. Was she joking? A real sushi restaurant in Charleston?
I like sushi, but I didn't know what to expect when Jennifer, her roommate Rachel and I arrived at Ichiban, a pan-Asian restaurant in the city's downtown district.
Fortunately, this story ends happily. Very happily. Ichiban was excellent, and Jennifer deserves a gold star. Even the unagi (eel) was quite good. And their lobster rolls definitely are worth trying as well.
