Eating…in Rehoboth Beach, Stingray, Sushi Bar & Asian Latino Grill, Delaware Beaches, Restaurant, Review



I thought nobody would be eating out the day after Valentine’s Day.  How mistaken I was, when my husband and I decided to go to Stingray, located at 59 Lake Ave.  Tel. 302-227-6476.  Website?


It was crowded, lively and with plenty of young people.  This restaurant is a favorite of many.  It is trendy, hip and cool.


A full bar with plenty of seating; a lounge on one side of it offers comfortable sofas and lower tables for casual conversation and mingling.  Pictures?  Sorry, it was crowded and you have to give people their privacy.

Stingray does not close during the week.  It is open every single day.  Mondays through Fridays it opens from 4 p.m. until 1 a.m.  On Saturdays and Sundays it opens at Noon until 1 a.m. 

Check the website above mentioned.  You will be able to go through the menus.  Stingray offers catering and check for upcoming sushi cooking classes that are held at the restaurant.

Ever since I started my blog I have repeated many times that all my reviews and pictures of restaurants are my personal opinion.  I enjoy going out to dinner; could be a hot dog stand, a food truck, casual or fine dining.  At times, I like a a restaurant on a specific night; other times the same restaurant might leave me lukewarm.  With all that said, then, this is my review of my visit to Stingray on 2/15/12.


I liked the atmosphere and the music.  I felt I was eating at a lounge; lights dimmed just enough; fun and relaxing at the same time.

We ordered some edamame with a soy ginger dipping sauce, fresh lime and sea salt.  I love plain edamame; the dipping  sauce was excellent.


Towels to clean our hands had been brought to the table already.

My husband ordered sushi rolls. Unakyu which was a grilled fresh water eel and cucumbers, outside sesame seeds.

And, the Man Eater which was fried fresh salmon with jalapeno and spicy mayo; sprinkled with chopped fresh cilantro.

I noticed he was just looking at them and eating them really slow.  Not thrilled.  You know, you can tell when the person is hesitant.  I decided to try one of them.  The best way to describe it? Boring.  There were no games playing with your tastebuds.  He managed to eat most but left a few on his plate.

On the other hand, my Chilean Sea Bass, sambal chili glazed with a crunchy sticky rice cake and bamboo shoot salad was excellent.  The fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned.  A bite of the sea bass with the crunchy sticky rice was the best.  Talking about having a party with my tastebuds.


No dessert for us on that evening….will be back to study the sushi menu once again.

Note:  I asked for fresh wasabi; our server said they did not have any.  Hopefully, they will add it to their menu.  It does make such a difference.

Talk to you later…

Stingray, Sushi Bar, Asian Latino Grill, Restaurant, Review, Take Out, Sushi Bar on Wheels, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware Beaches



Even though the building is painted in different colors and the interior has been redecorated over the years, the memories came back once I stepped into Stingray.  This restaurant, located at 59 Lake Avenue in Rehoboth Beach was years ago called Fran O’Brien’s.  It was an institution; anyone visiting the beaches; this was the “it” place for “apres beach”, drinks, food, and dancing.  It really was the place to see and being seen.

But enough of that since I am really dating myself.  That’s exactly what I told Laura, our server.  Laura was friendly and really knew the menu well. 

Stingray is one of the favorite sushi restaurants of a couple of friends.  And guess what?  They were there.  Joe and Carla; they are sushi connoisseurs.  Carla told me that I needed to order the Man Eater and the Malay Roll.  Laura agreed, as well.

It was the perfect evening to visit Stingray.  This will be their fourth season in Rehoboth Beach.  The tel. is 302-227-6476.  Website?  


Being that it was Sunday, it was quiet.  The music was playing and the restaurant exuded a club-like atmosphere. 


A full bar, a lounge area where dinner can be enjoyed with reservations.



The sushi bar took center stage.  Take Out is available until 1:00 a.m.


Other rooms were outfitted with tables and some with booths.


An enclosed glass porch was available and looked like it would be very nice to spend an evening having dinner on that porch while checking out the comings and goings on Lake Avenue.


I ordered the Man Eater and the Malay Roll.

The Man Eater had fried fresh salmon with jalapeno and spicy mayo, sprinkled with chopped fresh cilantro.  It was delicious and the combination of the salmon with jalapeno gave it a good kick.  Not overly so, but just a hint.  Finished with the cilantro was perfect.


The Malay Roll had crispy Chilean sea bass, asparagus, and spicy sauce inside, sesame seeds outside.  Very tasty, as well. 

Then I decided to order live scallops sashimi.  The presentation was very nice.  The only thing is that I like the scallops to be sliced thin with lime.  I thought that with the cucumber cup you could not really taste the scallops since they were chopped. 


Then I asked Laura if she could ask the sushi chef to prepare an order just like I wanted.  There was a marked difference and eating the scallops with the lime, well, was the best.


My husband had 2 orders of the same thing.  One was the smelt roe, served on the cucumber cups.  He liked them.


Then he had the Pocono Mountain Roll, which had steamed shrimp, crab plus masago mixed with a spicy sauce.  It was good.  I had one of those; it was a nice roll.  It was one of those rolls that I would call safe.  Safe, meaning not daring just comfortable; easy on your palate.

Stingray has a Sushi Bar on Wheels.  You can have your own private sushi bar at your next event.  Which means that you can be a guest at your own party.  It offers a variety of maki rolls and sushi selections for your guests to enjoy. 


Their Sushi Chefs will roll your selections behind their 6 seat sushi bar; fresh fish selections will be displayed in their refrigerated glass front sushi case.  To find more information about this, please call 302-227-6475. 

Besides Sushi, Stingray offers seafood, chicken, pork and beef.  There are even a couple of vegetarian dishes on the menu, as well.  Soups and salads are always on the menu.

Reservations are accepted for parties of 6 or more.

There is happy hour every day from 4 – 6 p.m. with 2 for 1 sushi rolls.  These will be selected rolls, dine in only and available in the bar and lounge only.

Saturdays and Sundays the happy hour starts at Noon until 6 p.m.

Some of the Latin dishes were Pork Mojo, lobster quesadillas, and fish tacos.  During the season more items will be added.

It was a nice evening.  At this time of the year, plenty of parking, no lines, so I am taking advantage before the gates open on Memorial Week-End.


Talk to you later…..have a good one….

I have written about my dog, Addy, in the past.  She is a “rescued” dog and I have been thrilled to have given her a “forever” home.  But, years ago I had a Springer Spaniel named Koko and I loved her to death.  She developed diabetes and I went through the stages of helping her get through this devastating disease that also affects canines.  I know what Bonnie went through and I hope you help her raise funds for Paws for the Cause and the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine’s Chase Away Canine Cancer Program.

On her behalf, I thank you.

Talk to you later…..have a great week-end….
