A long time ago, Justin and I celebrated our two-year anniversary at Sticky Rice. We ventured from College Park all the way to H St, and I clearly remember struggling to find parking.
Fast forward to the present, Sticky Rice isn’t how we remembered it. It might possibly be that we both experienced a variety of food after graduating from University of Maryland, or maybe the restaurant did change. We remembered a classy spot with delicious sushi, but this past weekend, we found it quaint and hipster.
Sticky Rice is known for its sushi, but having tried it before, I ordered a Tako Salad complete with fresh octopus sashimi mixed tossed in a lemon, lime dressing. Justin ordered Shrimp Coconut with vermicelli noodles, a dish that needs a kick of Sriracha to add more flavor. Kevin tried the popular Godzirra roll and deemed it tasty.
Oh, and if you don’t order the Tater-achos, you’re doing something wrong.
How did we end up at Sticky Rice? Maketto sadly closes at 3 pm for lunch, which meant I didn’t get my fried chicken fix. Despite off-lunch hours, young adults filled the entire dining area upstairs and a few patrons sipped cocktails in the bar area below.
Perhaps I’ll try karaoke night one of these days!
Sticky Rice is located on 1224 H St NE.
