Sushi 1 Takeout

23 N Federal Highway
Ft Lauderdale, FL

Tiny sushi place with very fresh food. This place is so incredibly cheap. The first time I went here, I was really apprehensive of a place that has $2-5 rolls and $1 giant slices of sashimi. Of course it was delicious. The place isn't exactly fast and its always jammed packed- may wanna phone the order ahead of time. There is also not much seating but who the hell cares when you can a 2 person sushi-feast for under $19?

Hajiki Seaweed Salad
(totally different flavor from the green stuff. I swear there is a Chinese version... )

Veggie Roll, I/O Avo Roll, Inari, Tuna Sashimi, Uni(Sea Urchin Gonads)

Uni - eating uni is like taking a bite out of a sac of sweet creamy butter goodness. I think the consistency is similar to a soft boiled egg yolk. Its creamy, rich, slightly sweet and absolutely delicious. The uni spreads all over the rice and gets mixed in it. The rice is a great balance, cuz without it you would just have a mouthful of goo...

Seaweed Udon
Probably my favorite menu item at the place. The seaweed is very mellow, the noodles are perfectly cooked-firm and chewy udon, the broth is sweet and savory, and the giant bowl is only $4. They give you this super lame plastic spoon, so you have to drink the soup from the bowl...till the last drop(Tampopo style...)

Love this place. Go there. Do everyone a favor and don't camp out there when you are done eating- its not a starbucks.
