Cafe Asia in Rosslyn

Rosslyn really needs some better restaurants.  Ray's is great for burgers, Pho 75 and Guajillo are pretty good too, otherwise it's a restaurant wasteland.  In a pinch, Cafe Asia is ok, but it can be hit or miss. Pretty good for groups.
Edamame $4.50
Tempura $7.00
Shrimp Curry Laksa with egg noodles ($12.00)
Not as good as Malaysia Kopitiam, but ok.
Happy Hour Sushi each piece of nigiri is $1.25 until 7 pm.
The sushi was surprisingly good this one time.  The rice was seasoned appropriately and the fish was fresh.  Hit!
Cafe Asia (tuna, crab, avocado) maki ($5.00), Salmon maki ($4.25), Spicy Tuna maki ($4.75), Avocado maki ($4.00), salmon, tuna, yellowtail, shrimp, tobiko nigiri ($1.25 each)
Yellowtail scallion maki ($4.50), spicy crab maki ($5.50), Avocado maki ($4.00), tuna, salmon, yellowtail, tobiko, squid, crab stick, octopus nigiri ($1.25 each)
This time, the nigiri rice was cold and hard, making me thing they were pre-formed. 
Blech.  Definitely a miss.
