For some unknown reason, Sashimi Sashimi has perhaps the cheapest nigiri and maki in the state. What's even better is that the "low price equals low quality" adage has no place at Sashimi, where the fish is fresh and prepared before your eyes.
Most of Sashimi's menu is typical for sushi restaurants, with the requisite Philadelphia, California and spicy tuna rolls, and yellow tail, salmon and eel sashimi. But basic maki runs only $2.90-$4.25 and sashimi ranges from a slim 75 cents to $1.50. Big Chicago, the mother of all maki with salmon, tuna, eel, hamachi, tamago, kampyo, avocado, cucumber and lettuce, may just be worth the $12.95 price tag.
Sashimi also carries a small range of soup and salads, including seaweed salad and an excellent udon noodle soup with shrimp tempura, fish cake, crab, spinach and sweet shitake mushrooms. Make sure to allow room for some kajitsu (bubble tea), fresh fruit smoothie-type drinks with tapioca balls ($2.80).
Beware that there's a minimum $9 credit card charge that you may be hard-pressed to eclipse. Sashimi only seats about 20 people, so take advantage of its delivery option if you don't want to risk having to wait for a table.
Average cost: <$10
