Handwritten menus and specials on the walls, Sushi by Yuji is small, quaint and authentic. The perfect spot to get my sushi and sashimi cravings satisfied. A buddy and I went for a late Sunday dinner and essentially had the place to ourselves. No qualms with that.
The prices are more than reasonable especially when you take into consideration the quality you’re getting.
Assorted sashimi combo ($11.75 for 12 pieces)
Tuna, wild salmon, hamachi, ika (squid), saba (mackarel) and small scallop. You know you’re in for a treat when the salmon is wild. Again, everything was top notch (presentation, size and freshness).
2x Toro nigiri ($2.25 each)
Our friend recommended that we try this at Yuji’s so we gave it a shot. These were presented differently than normal nigiri, I’m pretty sure I like them more with rice than wrapped up in the nori. Still, toro is always good so can’t complain too much.
Nice little touch at the end where they give you a packet of Pocky’s. The sushi chef’s at Yuji’s truly know what they are doing – their skillz are evident. Just like the saying goes, you get what you pay for. If you haven’t been yet, check them out! Their original location, Shima-Ya, is also supposed to be just as good. We tried to go on a separate visit but they were completely packed (not to mention insanely cramped for space).
