This has become my favorite 'treat' restaurant for mother-daughter lunches with my mom. They have a great inexpensive lunch special menu, but my favorites are the specialty rolls. They have the best rainbow rolls I've found - it's a standard, but this one melts in your mouth. The Paradise Roll has become my new favorite, I wasn't sure about a roll with a 'sauce' on top but once we had finished the roll I really wanted to lick the plate (I didn't). We always get those two and then try one new roll each time, everything has been good as we work our way through the list. My 8-year-old has been asking to go to a 'real' sushi restaurant so this week we took the two boys to Oba. Everyone had always been nice and we had great service before, but they went above and beyond with boys. We were greeted warmly and immediately after being seated the boys were given origami frogs. The 8-year-old ordered the popcorn shrimp roll and his less adventurous little brother ordered the chicken from the Izakaya menu, my first experience with that side of Oba. The little Panko-coated triangles looked and smelled delicious and by the way they were gobbled down I'm sure they were. The popcorn shrimp roll was good and huge, as it had a pile of popcorn shrimp on to of the roll. Mom and I had our usual two, delicious, and tried the dynamite roll -my first try with a cooked roll. It was good, the scallop and mushroom topping was yummy. What really struck me this trip was the special attention the boys were given, first the frogs then special chopstick holders, then origami elephant puppets and decorated boxes they used as puppet theaters. The final touch was a chocolate sauce Mickey mouse design on the moochi plate for desert and the origami boats with candy for each boy. My guys are usually pretty good at restaurants, but with all the distractions they never had a chance to play-up. I loved Oba before but this experience put it over the top for me.
