Everyone needs a solid, afforable sushi place with better-than-average sushi that acts as their weekly sushi joint, and I think I have found mine in Shiki Sushi.
Shiki Sushi is in a little strip mall semi-close to Southpoint in Durham. They have a nice two-for-one deal which is a bargain if you order any of the rolls that are less than ten dollars. While this is not the best sushi I have ever eaten in my life, it is pretty damn good sushi, and some of the rolls are creative. Also, incredibly filling. The space is large and Asian fusion-y designed and fairly pleasant. Also, there’s a TCBY around the corner, if that’s your bag. Sometimes, it happens to be my bag.
Jon and I went the other night and shared a Nemo roll (spicey tuna and avocado with some salmon on top), a North Carolina Sunset roll (spice tuna, salmon, cream cheese, and spicy mayo with little red fish roes that pop in your mouth, I love that), a Special Maguro Roll (spicy mayo, scallop, fish roe, tempura crunch, tuna) and I forget what the last roll was but it involved some tempura and eel sauce.
That picture makes me want sushi again. I seriously could eat sushi every day for every meal for the rest of my life. Just saying.
