Go, go Ricezilla

Ricezillas, Lou's Sushi

What's best in life? Some may say it's the crushing of your enemies and seeing them driven before you. But for the less barbaric, it's actually a big ball of rice with a hunk of wasabi in the center, fried to a thick crisp and placed in creamy garlic sauce. The Ricezillas ($5) at Lou's Sushi are a hefty little appetizer that'll stomp your taste buds with a dense, rich flavor before a swath of burning wasabi cleans up your palate. Plus, the garlic sauce left behind goes great on the Midtown roll, just saying. 2801 P Street, www.lousushi.com.
