The Critic is not sure what is happening at Campay but things are not as happy in this sushi place as they once were.
The room feels smaller than usual, perhaps because it has been given a new coat of paint. The Critic feels that there used to be something on the walls that made it feel a little more spacious, but that could be an optical illusion.
The sushi is still quite acceptable but there is no effort made anymore to decorate the plates in any fashion. Rolls are put on a plate and that’s it. Edamame is a tiny portion worthy of derision; a few soy bean pods dumped on a side plate. The waiter, who has ‘served’ the Critic on the last few occasions he has been there, always has something negative to say or there is some problem with something that has been ordered. The customer is asked if he or she wants ginger and wasabi. The ginger tastes nothing like the pickled ginger once offered – it seems like they have decided that buying real pickled ginger is too expensive and have decided to make it themselves with decidedly unfortunate results.
While it is not as bad as the sushi place by the gas station, Campay is definitely off the list of places you should try, at least until they get their act together.
