Manpuku Sushi

San Francisco
Sushi Restaurant
$$$$

If there's such a thing as a standard sushi dive, Manpuku is it. Perfect for sushi lovers on a budget (especially students), the Berkeley spot serves nigiri starting just below $2 and traditional rolls around $3. The long, skinny establishment is decidedly no-frills, but counter-service and a quick turnaround make it reliable for the starving, on-the-go artist in you. Ramen, soba, and bento boxes are also on the menu.
