    I’m a huge fan of the black rice sushi rolls and nigiri and Union’s black rice sampler gets you four of the restaurant’s rolls for $25.

    The nigiri shimmers with freshness, the maki deftly walks a tightrope of tangy and savory and the sashimi invites you to feast.

    This roll features fatty tuna, avocado, fresh raspberry slices and is drizzled with a perfect raspberry reduction. It’s absolutely essential to stop in and try Sushi Taiyo, in any weather.

    You can’t go wrong with the combination platter of fatty and yellowfin tuna. It and the chef’s choice sashimi platters are worth the price tag.

    Some of their rolls and nigiri are so beautiful you’re almost afraid to eat. Take a picture, or at least a mental image, and enjoy; this art is meant to be consumed.

    One spicy salmon and one spider make for one of my favorite meals, though the menu is an extensive one.

    I recommend the hulking monster rolls, which testify to the fact that more is better when it comes to your umami sensors.

    The sashimi here is always clean tasting, the nigiri served atop some of the fluffiest rice imaginable and the rolls aren’t gut-busters.

    The chef’s choice nigiri and sashimi platters will easily feed a group of four or more and have you feeling sated.

    Your best bet at Wasabi is to go and share, grab a bowl of spicy garlic miso ramen, a side of kimchee, a few rolls and a few pieces of uni, crack open the bottle of wine you brought and enjoy your feast.

    The place can get pretty crowded on the weekends with waits upwards of an hour, so it’s smart to make a reservation, or at least bring an extra bottle of wine to consume while you wait.

    Fresh and surprising flavors accent the fish, not overwhelm it. Sit at the bar and tell them what you like and they’ll make something amazing for you.
