This is not a food blog, but I just had some great sushi about 3 minutes from my house and had to share. Yama Sushi opened last week in the Dorsey Search shopping center and we decided to check it out. I've had sushi at just about every HoCo location, and so far Sushi King has been my favorite. Well there's a new King in town. Yama had great service, a great menu selection, and great non-seafood fare for my scale avoiding bride.
The biggest pain for me at sushi places is getting enough so I'm full, but not breaking the budget with $7-8 rolls. The menu offered combo platters at about $17 that will fill up the hungriest of sushi lovers. I had the Crispy Spicy Platter, which had Yellowtail, Tuna, and Salmon (6 pieces each). This normally doesn't matter to me, but even the plates were decorated with vegetables cut into fish and snails (Indiana Jane called this "wasteful," but I found it to be a nice touch). Heck, even the salad dressing was great.
Yama Sushi is a franchise, but it appears to be locally owned. I've commited myself to favor the locally owned places when deciding where I want to eat (come on locally owned Chipotle!!!). I suggest you go out and enjoy some locally owned sashimi and rice.
