RA Sushi drops the bomb

Downtown sushi spot debuts bomb cocktail menu, but is it bomb?

Downtown sashimi spot RA Sushi (474 Broadway) recently dropped a new drink menu specializing in – wait for it – sake bombs.

The menu offers eight traditional beer and sake bombs (featuring staples such as Sapporo, Orion, Echigo, and Asahi), five RA signature bombs, and a variety of bomb shots.

The USA Bomb - brb, NSA knocking down my door - looks as if it were lifted from a Lakeside barbecue, touting a bottle of Bud and a shot of Jack Daniel’s (the rest of us call this a Boilermaker).


On the classier side, they’ve got the Fuji Bomb, which sweetens up the classic Kirin with a carafe of apple sake.

But what Downtown bar would be complete without a foofie shot selection?

The Fire Bomb combines good ole Fireball with Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider to make liquid apple pie, while the Chocolate Cherry Bomb mixes cherry vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, and velvety stout.

Not the most innovative menu at $7 to $11 a pop, but hey, this is the Gaslamp, and you could certainly fare much worse at any number of places within an 8 block radius.

Is the new menu da bomb or a bomb (chortle)?

Find out at RA Sushi’s happy hour: Monday through Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. and Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to midnight.
