Sticky Rice – H Street

Bucket of Tots Sticky Rice
So who goes to a sushi spot for tater tots?  This gal! I stumbled in late one night with a friend and most of the menu was off limits.  We ended up ordering dumplings and a bucket of tots.  Tater tots are my friends’ favorite.  I teased him about ordering them until I tasted one.  They were really good!  You would think that tater tots are the most basic thing to prepare, but you would be surprised at how it’s so easy to mess up!  These tots were perfect.  Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and not a trace of grease.  They were served with “special sauce”.  Usually, when you see a pinkish sauce like this, “special” usually means mayo mixed with ketchup.  I suspect this is the same thing, but maybe with a little sriracha mixed in because there was a little heat.
Sweet Potato Tots Sticky Rice
I’ve been back many times with the intention of trying something else on the menu, but I keep coming back to the tots.  I think it’s because I don’t eat tots very often and I know how good they are here.  I went back just last weekend and finally decided to try something else.  The sweet potato tots!  They were just as good!  I love it when a place knows how to fry a sweet potato because I swear it’s the hardest thing to do.  These tots were served with a sweet and sour sauce, but I found it to be a little too sweet for me and asked for the special sauce.  I love the combo of sweet and spicy.   Now that I’ve tried both tots, my new goal is to go back again and try the sushi.
