Maki Shop dc roll

After one too many glasses of wine on Friday night, the boyfriend and I woke up with slight headaches (whoops). Not sure what would cure us, we began to list off different things to eat… mac & cheese, bacon, sushi…? The sushi idea stuck!

We remembered we had passed by an interesting looking sushi-to-go style restaurant on 14th street the night before. It was within walking distance and we could wear workout clothes to it (win, win!)… the sushi plan was in motion!
