A Tribute to Sushi
The Sac Foodies heart sushi. Whether you want to wind down at the end of a long day, or get a night of celebration started, sushi is often a go-to cuisine. Our favorite local sushi spots are a very common topic of conversation around here.
We’ve managed to accumulate an overload of sushi reviews and pictures over the past few months, which can only lead to one thing: A Tribute to Sushi! So sit back, enjoy the beautiful pictures, and learn about all of our favorite sushi spots around town!
Jessica Smith – My first-ever restaurant experience in Sacramento was at Sapporo during the first week that they opened. I was impressed with the creativity of their rolls and have been delighted to see them supporting events locally…such as the Sactown Magazine premiere party for “The September Issue.”
Jenna Kirkwood – I’m a HUGE fan of spicy/saucy rolls and the “Train Wreck” at Mikuni has got to be my favorite. I do also love Nishiki for all-around delicious rolls and have very fond memories of mid-day sushi-comas after all-you-can-eat sushi lunches at Sushi Nobu in Davis.
Liz Conant – I recently checked out Hashi, a fairly new sister restaurant to Nishiki. Located at 21st and L Street, they have some great specials including $1 handrolls on Monday, $1 nigiri on Tuesday and ½ off a selection of special rolls on Wednesday. We went on a Wednesday and ordered edamame, a couple pieces of tuna nigiri and a selection of the special handrolls. I especially liked the Lion King and Dragon rolls – next time I think I’ll go on a Monday for the $1 hand rolls! If you like Nishiki, you’ll probably like Hashi too.
Christine Schunk – My favorite sushi place is Zen Toro, in downtown Davis. I found the perfect roll here, and often try to recreate it at other sushi restaurants but of course the original is always best. The Citrus Breeze roll consists of tempura shrimp, cucumber, cream cheese and avocado topped with fresh salmon and lemon slices. Deliciousness on a plate!
Kim Bedwell – I’m a Nishiki fan. Specifically, I enjoy the Capitol Roll and the McHenry Roll. Also, you can’t pass up the bacon-wrapped scallops in the thick teriyaki sauce. Yum!
