Seattle’s Sushi Smackdown

Holy shiitake! So many sushi joints, so little time… yet only the most exceptional fish will ensure a raw-kin’ good feast according to this week’s Weekly Yelp. Luckily, Seattle Yelpers are in the know about where the rolls are fresh and the sashimi is like buttah.

Shiro’s (Belltown)“Hands down the best,” harksHoman L who Dreams Of Sushiin Belltown. And if you’re up for omakase, this is the place: Make sure to steal a seat at the bar and “prepare to transcend to a higher plane of existence,” as one of the talented chefs from the movie is behind the counter.


Tsukushinbo (International District)

Yeah, he’s used to the long ramen line starting as early as 11:30am (before they even open), but Ron M doesn’t just live for the Friday special — his best kept secret is to go for the sushi at this family-owned operation. It’s “pretty freaking tasty and super fresh!”

Maneki (International District)

Call her a history buff or a sushi sensei, Loralee V sashimis her way over to this hamachi hub, an ID sushi staple for over 100 years! Reserving a large tatami-style matted room for her group, “The privacy afforded us a great space for visiting,” and of course snarfing down fresh maki.

Shiki (Queen Anne)

You can’t get more local than this, boasts Bridget B. “The chef grows his own fresh shrimp in an aquarium right on the countertop!” Also the only spot in town licensed to serve fugu, even Homer Simpson would approve.

Liberty (Capitol Hill)

Want a whisky to wash it all down? This Capitol Hill haunt has a hard to beat Japanese selection to pair with your prawns.Gina K croons, “The ambiance, delicious cocktails, extensive whisky list, inventive sushi, and free Wi-Fi make this my new favorite study spot!” [24×7]
