It takes a lot of time and patience to make the right kind of sushi: fresh fish or vegetables, correct amount of rice, the size and the length, and the chef has to calculate precisely how much of the ingredients should be used to leave his/her customers satisfied. We Be Sushi has managed to perfect this balancing act. Nigiri sushi are served as two on a small plate, and has a pleasant variety of fresh fish and vegetables. This place not only offers sushi and sashimi, but also lunch and dinner with the famous Japanese beer ‘Sapporo,’ or premium sake. Suitable for families and corporate events, the minimalistic interior design helps you relax and fully enjoy the meal.

The owner of We Be Sushi opened two restaurants a few block apart from each other. If We Be Sushi, mentioned above, is recommended for families and friends, this location is smaller, more intimate and perfect for a first date or simply enjoying a dinner for one. The design combines ethnography and a rich history of Japanese cultural items, including fine paintings hanging on the walls with fans and mythological creatures. The menu is the same as the first location, but the environment couldn’t be more different. Evenings are the best time to be there.

Instead of making an accent on sushi, Ramen Izakaya Goku decided to hone their craft on ramen. Their specialty is kakuni tonkotsu ramen (braised pork) made according to an old recipe, and their bowls are big enough to make anyone full for the rest of the day. Their small bites, such as squid tempura and takoyaki (octopus dumpling rolls), are perfect examples of how two different ingredients can work together. The interior is modestly sized, prices are decent, service is fast, and the ramen is always rewarding.

Blowfish sushi is casual Japanese fusion dining combined with good music and cocktails, which makes it an ideal place for corporate gatherings. The goal of Blowfish Sushi is to offer a new step in the tasting of Japanese cuisine. The classic yakisoba is a popular lunch item, but if you want to try something new, their vegetable chanko is a dish traditionally eaten by sumo wrestlers. If you want to sit back and watch some anime on their televisions while drinking premium sake, this is the place for you.
