The Best of South Florida: Best Sushi
The Best of South Florida has an acquired taste. We found Sushi is one of those foods people either love or hate. And if you love it, then you'll love to know there are three restraunts that rock at serving up the roll.
(WSVN) Get your apetite ready.
Tonight, the Best of South Florida is pretty fishy.
It turns out when it comes to eating Japanese cuisine, our viewers are Sushi savvy.
"The service is wonderful and the food is very good."
"People say they don't like good sushi, but if they try the good stuff, they'll really like it."
And you'll find plenty of good stuff at our viewers' third choice - Banzai in Pembroke Pines.
"You can't beat the quality, the freshness."
Quality, freshness, and creativity.
The menu hears mean nothing.
Chef Tim is a culinary expert at concocting new creations.
"Ifound that tim is very accomodating."
"Ithink he has the freshest fish I've tried."
Chef Tim usually names these edible ideas after his favorite customers.
But he made an exception for our producer and photographer.
So get your first look at the Bill and Laura roll.
"So far, so good."
So far, so good for our viewers 2nd pick - Benihana on the 79th Street Causeway.
"Very exciting to us."
"Ihave a great sushi chef."
No fancy food tricks here. These Sushi chefs get their recipe directly from the orient.
"As long as I've known good Sushi, I've known Beinhana."
Then you must know Benihana prides itself on one of the largest selections in town.
Not to mention, an awesome atmosphere.
"Ilike the music. It's pretty cool."
"You can overlook the bay."
But you can't overlook Hiros on North Miami Beach.
Our viewers top choice knows you can't get enough of a good thing and that's why they serve up the Sushi until 3:30 in the morning.
"Quality's the best, price is the best."
Whether its take out, delivery, or eating at the bar, hiros has developed quite a clientel over the past 20 years.
"We've been customers for a long time."
That following comes from a menu that changes weekly plus fish that's guaranteed fresh.
I've been in a few sushi restraunts and this is one of the nicest places I've been."
So we guess you could say when it comes to Sushi, Hiros is a super hero.
Also don't forget were taking your votes for the best kids clothing store.
And next week, something else to chew on, we'll reveal the Best Delis in South Florida.
