It’s nearly lunchtime and all I can think about is sushi.
From fine dining to casual sit-downs, here are 12 places in (and around) SB with some of the best sushi served right:
One of my favorites places to go is Ichiban. The atmosphere is laid back and you always feel like family. Rolls to get: Tigers Eye, Santa Fe and/or Louisiana.
Known for its presentation (and portions), Sushiko is located at the Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City. I don’t go here as often as I’d like, but I would recommend the Samurai or the Titanic.
3. Sushi Gen
Rated Best Sushi Restaurant by SB readers for 2017, Sushi Gen is a Line Avenue hot spot and staple. I love popping by for lunch because you can score two rolls for $10. My favorites include the Yellow Tail Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll.
Presentation is key at Shogun — especially when it comes to the signature sushi boat. This was the first place I ever tried sushi, and while I wasn’t exactly thrilled about it at first, over time I have grown to love it.
Two words: sake and sushi. These go hand in hand, and at Tokyo, it’s all you need.
If you live near Harrah’s Louisiana Downs, you’ve probably tried this hidden gem. Ichigo is part of Lin’s Kitchen located near Gullo’s. The prices are reasonable and the service is quick. Family of four? Try the party platters.
7. Spicy Bowl
I have yet to try this semi-new restaurant on Barksdale Boulevard but every time I drive by, it’s packed. They must be doing something right!
Hana is located on E. 70th Street in Shreveport and is one of our pricier sushi spots. I suggest trying the Yam Yam Roll or the Jazz Roll.
9. Jabez & Jabes
Once you get the name down, it’ll quickly become your favorite sushi joint in the area. The owner, who originally came from Ichiban, started her own restaurant a few years back and it’s become a staple in the community. It doesn’t matter what you get, it’s all good at Jabez and Jabes. My suggestion: Jabez Roll and Sushi Mountain.
One of Shreveport’s newest sushi additions, Kumo is located on Greenwood Road. I haven’t tried this spot, but the menu seems to have a wide variety to choose from.
This Bossier City sushi restaurant is located on Airline Drive and they have a plethora of my favorite type of roll — baked. You can also try authentic Korean dishes while you’re there.
12. Yummy Sushi
It’s a little bit of a drive, but if you’re headed to Minden, stop into Yummy Sushi where you never have to leave your car. Just pull up, order and a car hop will bring your sushi out in moments.
