Sushi in Ann Arbor

Now that we’ve prepared sushi at home, I think we’ll mostly be eating it out. It was not our easiest cooking adventure, although we did enjoy the results with a glass of chilled Sake.

If you decide to try it at home, I recommend watching these helpful Youtube videos:

In the Ann Arbor-area, you can buy almost everything you need at reasonable prices at this market :
Hua Xing Asia
2867 Washtenaw Avenue
Ypsilanti, MI 48197
(734) 528-3388

If you decide to eat out, we've fallen in love with these two restaurants in Ann Arbor, MI: Yotsuba and Godaiko.

Both are outside of the downtown area and worth the short drive. Godaiko, next to an enormous Asian food market, has a Tatami room where you can sit on the floor with friends while you feast. Yotsuba is a bit further out and seems more popular; I’d recommend reservations. We were taken by the fresh ingredients, kind service to those of us who had questions about the menu.

I'm partial to Biwako Sushi which is in Saline. I can eat at least a pound of food there by myself. It's SO good.
