Oshima Sushi, Sacramento


It might seem unusual, but yesterday I celebrated Cinco de Mayo at Oshima, a sushi restaurant in the Natomas area. I had never been to this restaurant before so I jumped at the opportunity to try something new and celebrate the holiday.

Little did I know how big the celebration would be! The whole Oshima parking lot was blocked off for an outdoor concert and multiple booths were set up selling skewers, Mexican food, margaritas, and more. Despite that, I was more interested in the food inside the restaurant.

I should make it known that I don’t like seafood of any kind and don’t normally frequent sushi restaurants, but I know most sushi places usually have one meal I do like-teriyaki chicken with rice, and that’s what I ordered.  My dining partner chose the PDR, a sushi roll stuffed with shrimp tempura topped with snow crab and green onion.  As we waited for our food, we were entertained by the music of a live mariachi band.

The PDR roll came out a little before my chicken. Even though I didn’t try it, I know it must have been good because my dining partner had devoured half of it by the time my food arrived. My chicken teriyaki came on a platter-sized plate to accommodate the humongous serving size! It was delicious- the chicken was tender and there was just the right amount of teriyaki sauce. The rice was cooked to perfection and I was pleasantly surprised to see a side of cut cucumbers on my plate.

After dinner we enjoyed the concert outside, and of course, had a celebratory Cinco de Mayo drink.
