Plentiful Sushi to Satiate
"You Ask ... Patch Answers" and Patch's new Q&A work together to answer a freelancer's burning question.
What have you always wanted to know?
Where to check for school sports schedules? How much homes in your neighborhood are worth? What local shop has the best prices on tires? Where to get a great slice of pizza at 1 a.m.?
Whatever you want to know, Morristown Patch now gives you the chance to ask the people who know best–your peers and neighbors. Just head over tomorristown.patch.com/questions and ask ... well, anything at all. And if you've got local wisdom to share, answer a question already posted by someone else.
Again, that's morristown.patch.com/questions. Just type what you'd like to know where the page says "Ask a Question" up top. And browse around to see what else is on Patchers' minds. That's all there is to it!
And now, on with the show!
"Where can I get sushi without breaking the bank?!" - Giovanny
Hungry? In the mood for sushi?
You're in luck. Anyone familiar with Morristown's many dining establishments will be familiar with its many, many (many) sushi establishments.
From Sushi Lounge to Nagano Sushi, Aikou to J. Hinari, Asahi to Nara, these Japanese restaurants offer up what has become about as ubiquitous to the dining landscape as pizza and General Tso's chicken.
But, as freelancer and sushi fan Giovanny Infante asked in our brand-new Q&A section, "where can I get sushi without breaking the bank?!"
Truth is, many sushi restaurants that have extravagant, expensive creations also have some decent prices on sushi–it just depends on what kind of sushi you want to eat.
At swanky Sushi Lounge, a pre-selected lunch list of two hand rolls will cost you $10, or three rolls for $15. This includes such staples as spicy tuna, California and yellowtail. These specials include either miso soup or salad. Some of the prices, including spicy tuna, jump to $7 at dinner. Cucumber, avocado and a combination of the two, run $4. The "Toro Roll," blue fin tuna belly with scallions, tops the scales on their hand roll list at $15.
At Asahi, while that same cucumber roll again comes in at about $4, their avocado roll checks in for $4.99. Other common rolls, like their California roll, is priced at $4.50, the tuna roll is $4.99 while Asahi's "Jenny roll," a combination of tuna, salmon and avocado, is priced higher at $6.99. Their most expensive hand roll, the "Dancing Eel Roll," an oshinko roll topped with eel, goes for $11.50.
At newly-opened J. Hinari Sushi, high-quality hand rolls have been paired with other Japanese staples and, my personal favorite, Korean food. Familiar rolls like salmon and tuna are only $4, with their spicy counterparts priced at $1 more. While you're at it, have them with a delicious bowl of bibimbap.
Of course, this is far from a comprehensive list. To that end, Morristown Patch's food column, "Morristown Munchies," pledges to visit and review every single sushi establishment in town. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.
Hope this helps, Giovanny!
