Yoyogi Sushi

328 Main Street
Gaithersburg, MD 20878

Pros: Amazing prices, fresh ingredients

Cons: Cramped seating

You may have noticed that this list and our previous lists have had surprisingly few sushi restaurants. It’s not that we hate sushi – we actually enjoy it quite a bit – it’s just that we feel that sushi usually tends to be one of the most commonly over-priced meals. Our friends introduced us to Yoyogi Sushi which dispelled this notion. Yoyogi Sushi offers excellent sushi for amazingly low prices! Instead of paying about $7 to $10 for a single roll of sushi, you get about two rolls for the same price.

We tried a handful of different rolls. The ones that we seemed to enjoy the most were their Unagi (eel) Sushi, California Rolls, Spicy Tuna Sushi, and Spider Sushi (basically tempura soft-shell crab sushi). Our friends also really enjoyed the White Tuna Sushi. If you’re so inclined, be sure to try out the seaweed salad, which can be enjoyed as a single meal unto itself.

Yoyogi Sushi was truly a place that introduced us to the idea of affordable sushi. Although the restaurant may be a little cramped for seating, there are some outdoor tables for nice days. Otherwise, feel free to order some for take out so that you can enjoy this amazingly good sushi at your own dining table.
