Went back to Shiro and this time it let me down. The salmon sashimi was great and consistent with the taste and texture of my previous visit but the rolls we ordered were sub par. The issue was the sushi chef made a bad batch of sushi rice. You can see the gelatinous shine to the rice in the picture, I think maybe too much water or vinegar was added.
We ordered a futomaki roll later, and the rice was better. It helped make up for the meal but couldn't save it.
It just goes to show you how important consistency is and how on any day you could get a real good meal or a real bad meal at one of your favorite spots.
