Whenever we talk about Japanese food, especially those popular like sushi, sashimi we always think having it in either cozy Japanese style restaurants, noisy with those familiar sound like "Hai, Hai"... or classy ones with superb quality, superb fresh tuna, salmon...right from the Tsukiji market! And the price at both places is always high, not affordable to many youngsters.
But this Sky sushi - a new discovery in the backpack area (Nguyen Thai Hoc street) could beat any other places in Saigon for the price, and the quality is very good!
Talking to the chef - a young good looking guy with a ponytail, I found that he and his friend used to work for Japanese restaurant for years and no long ago they decided to set up a new venture - sushi on the street for backpackers, for those who love sushi but may never go to costly Japanese restaurants. This could be a very first sushi stall, a pioneer to bring popular Japanese sushi, sashimi out to the open public in Saigon.
My order - a plate of futomaki as I always fail to scroll this big sushi at home!
And here - crispy tempura shrimp inside sushi, recommended by next table's customers.
Japanese traditional meal seems never go without a bowl of miso soup.
Before ending this post, just let you know how much for all dishes you see plus a can of beer, only 370,000 VND, i.e 17,6 USD! Is it good?
