A city so diverse offers up an array of cuisine options, and if you’re craving Japanese fare, you’re in the right town! Start at Yosuke Sushi, a casual spot for standard Japanese dishes and an eclectic mix of sushi. Being so close to the Pacific Ocean means that Japanese hot spots can feature the freshest fish possible for sushi and sashimi!
Café Misora is a cheap-eats delight that offers complimentary green tea ice cream that’s phenomenal. Try their spicy ramen if you’re in the mood for some kick, or the teriyaki roll for a sticky, sweet fusion roll. Few tourists know about this gem, so check it out, and fall in love.
On a Roll!
Toyo Sushi and Roll is located next to the local university and has long been a student go-to spot. Try their bento or lunch specials for an affordable option like the bulgogi bowl, unagi bowl or poke bowl. Upgrade your bento box to include a tempura California roll, mixed sashimi or mixed sushi.
At Biyako, you’ll find aged dashi tofu, baked mussels, a salmon skin salad, fresh, baked or tempura rolls and traditional entrees. Generous dinner options are available, and for dessert make sure to save room for tempura or mochi ice cream.
