Walt's Best Sushi Restaurants
I'll admit, I'm relatively new to the world of sushi, and there's SO MANY places to explore. Alas, these are the best that I've visited, and ask that you weigh-in with more suggestions so we can put our chop sticks to good use.
Mikuni. Eight locations near and in Sacramento.
The first local superstar of the sushi craze. Try the "Sake' Don" it's salmon slices over rice. The combo plates have everything. If you don't like sushi, the tempura is great. Plenty of chicken and beef dishes too.
Kamon. 2210 16th St, Sacramento.
My first experience with sushi with a big table of gents in a "Dad's night out."
Loved the spicy tuna rolls and the shrimp tempura. California roll was good. The Godzilla roll..a sesame chicken roll done tempura style was a hit.
Miso, 15th and Broadway, Sacramento.
Across from the historic Tower Theatre. "Sushi and a movie tonight?"
Try the bbq Albacore...tart and sweet. I like the albacore tuna slices dish with jalapeno. Hot oil. I can walk to Miso from my house so extra sake and beer is usally in order.
Blue Nami. 3 locations outside Sacramento.
Cool vibe inside and many of my "suburban living friends" love the place. Gotta get the grilled albacore or flying tiger roll! Check out the options you get on the Blue Nami "special" for $16.95. Wide selection & portions for a fair price.
Tex Wasabi's. Sacramento Arden and Howe.
Guy Fieri's place. A bizarre menu that covers anybody's tastes whether it be sushi or whatever. Try the Jackass Roll..or Johnny Garlic's roll. It's Hard Rock Cafe' meets TGI Fridays with a blast of Japan and Texas thrown in. Go check it out for yourself and see if you can figure it out!
So now it's your turn...What are your favorite sushi places?
