Is this even possible? Most cheap sushi is low quality and usually consists of salmon, crab with K, tuna and maybe an average tamago. Once you enter the realm of an omakse meal (chef’s choice of various items including some cooked) the notion of affordability quickly flies out the window. My friends, I have found the best (quality & value) omakase/chef’s choice meal in the city and it resides at Sushi Huku. While they offer a variety of omakase at various price points ($60, $90, $120), the $38 chef’s choice is the way to go, especially if you’re on your own. Not only does it come with soup and salad, but you get 10 pieces of high test nigiri plus a toromaki roll; oh and the miso soup has lemon, lemon grass and mussels!
You know you’re in good hands when this is the “worst” piece of fish you’re offered!
Sushi Huku has been a favorite of mine for a while, but I never had any of the omakase options before, so shame on me. $38 at most reputable sushi joints won’t even get you three fancy rolls, let alone 10 pieces of high quality nigiri; this is a steal and you should get there and take advantage before they realize it!
