Chiba Sushi

Restaurant, Japanese
Rounding out what may be the most unique eatery on our list, Chiba Sushi is quickly becoming a local favorite in American Fork. The restaurant has caught on to a unique new food combination that is popping up all over the country. The sushi burrito, or ‘sushirrito’ as some call it, is essentially a sushi roll the size of a burrito, that is cut once in half and eaten with your hands. The giant rolls are filled with traditional sushi ingredients like rice, raw fish and vegetables, but it has taken on a decidedly American face. Chiba Sushi customers love the opportunity for a new and different food option and the restaurant is enjoying the buzz around this new food trend.

Though it’s far from the salty ocean shore, Sushi House offers on-point sushi in the heart of Utah County. The restaurant is housed in a slightly odd building that somewhat resembles an old diner. Once inside, the decor is friendly and inviting.
