Sang with joy over sushi

To the Editor,

Japanese dining in Wilmington? Spending a night in sushi heaven? Yes and yes at Howaitohausu (Japanese translation for White House) or better known as The White House on Route 9 West. Everything from The Volcano (crab salad, tuna, spicy mayo, with crunchies on top) to The Avocado Bomb (tuna, avocado, spicy mayo, with tiny purple chips).

It also happens I have a great likeness for dragons, so I pushed myself to order The Green Dragon (California roll, avocado, with aioli) against my husbands wishes, telling me I was eating like a Sumo wrestler. The Green Dragon dish definitely made me feel like Khaleesi, the Mother of Dragons in The Game of Thrones by the end of the evening.

Every single small bite I took that night, my humming began to get louder and louder. I even told Sang the sushi chef, he made me sing with joy after being served such fresh fish, artistically displayed on every plate.

Sadly my gastronomical night had to come to an end. As I was leaving Howaitohausu, I quietly said sayonara (Japanese translation for goodbye) to Sang the sushi chef and to the majestic Victorian house on the top of the hill, The White House in Wilmington.
