It takes a lot of experience and practice to make great sushi. Here at We Be Sushi, we've spent years perfecting our recipes and methods, and our customers know we have it down. We pay close attention to all aspects of sushi preparation: making sure the rice is just the right texture, the fish is of the highest quality, the veggies are crisp and delicious. We have the knowledge to combine all the different flavors of this Japanese cuisine into exciting and satisfying taste experiences. We like to say our sushi is just like Mom used to make, if you were lucky and had a Japanese mom!
Using the freshest, highest quality fish is the most important element in the creation of sushi.
Excellent raw fish should have a delicate flavor and practically melt in your mouth. At We Be Sushi, we don't skimp on this step. We find the tastiest fish to use in our sushi, and the results really show.
Our menu is huge and might be intimidating to the uninitiated! Remember that you can always ask your server for recommendations or details about particular items. For those who want to explore on their own, here are a few terms to remember. Nigiri is pieces of raw fish – such as salmon, albacore tuna or hamachi – placed on top of balls of sticky sushi rice. Sometimes grilled eel, or unagi, is used as well. Maki are rolls of fish, veggies and rice in different combinations, sliced into bite-sized pieces. Both kinds of sushi are customarily eaten with soy sauce, fiery wasabi and pickled ginger. We take great pleasure at the variety of sushi we offer as well as its artistic presentation. Our Sushi Combo plate is a colorful and delicious thing of beauty.
We also offer plenty of options for vegetarians and people who prefer cooked dishes. Try our savory hijiki (seaweed) salad, our grilled eggplant, or a plate of luscious deep-fried tempura. Sake lovers will appreciate our wine selections as well. If you're in the mood for Japanese comfort food at a reasonable price, come to We Be Sushi. You'll leave happy!
