The 50th state to join the USA, Hawaii is a beautiful archipelago located in the Pacific Ocean. Its lush fertile grounds provide an abundance of delicious produce while the blue ocean waters carry succulent fish and seafood, producing some of the tastiest sushi around. From coastal restaurants to inland eateries, here are 10 great spots to sample some of the best sushi in Hawaii.
Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar
Opened by a third generation Japanese American, D.K. Kodama, Sansei, which means ‘third generation’ in Japanese, is a seafood restaurant. Located in Lahaina, Sansei has a total of four locations in the state all of which feature award winning ‘New Wave’ sushi. One example is the panko crusted ahi roll, which is sashimi grade Hawaiian ahi, spinach, and arugula wrapped in a panko crust, flashed-fried and accompanied by a mild soy wasabi butter sauce. Another innovative highlight is the seared foie gras nigiri sushi with caramelized Maui onions, mango, and a drizzle of unagi glaze. Between the creative menu and inviting atmosphere, it is no wonder this place is a favorite.
