This South Street staple gives you creative sushi without an over-the-top ambience. Try the Rittenhouse Roll for a crunchy tobiko take on the California roll, wrapped in salmon and scallion, or an expansive menu of veggie options.
The best thing to come out of Miami since the song "Welcome to Miami", the Winter menu at Pod's the work of the Morimoto vet and Iron Cheffer behind Miami sushi hotspot Makoto, who's now bringing luxe sashimi toppings and a late night happy houring to U City.
Izumi is a BYOB Japanese restaurant and sushi haven in South Philly.
This Center City hole-in-the-wall is the most affordable way to get high-end sushi and unique roll combinations. Try the Sansom Roll for a shrimp-tempura, crab-stick, and avocado roll topped with tuna, salmon, avocado, eel sauce, spicy sausage, masago, and scallions.
The menu is part-Thai food, part-sushi, and the restaurant is split likewise. Choose between traditional American seating, the side of the restaurant with sports playing on multiple flat-screens, or Japanese floor seating. Fried food aficionados will appreciate the tempura platter and the crunchy deliciousness with the Flamingo Roll. Oh, and there's fried ice cream.
Morimoto is the restaurant of, well, Masaharu Morimoto, the famous Iron Chef whose sushi creations continue to be on the cutting edge of the Japanese culinary world.
