Several weekends each summer I spend traveling to different cities across the US to act as a generalist appraiser on the Antiques Roadshow. Salt Lake City was one of the Roadshow’s summer 2016 tour stops and surprisingly where I encountered some of the best sushi I’ve had…
Takashi (Yelp) is a gem in downtown SLC with a friendly staff and incredibly fresh sushi.
Since I was dining alone I decided to sit at the sushi counter where the chefs working across from me promptly greeted me with a smile and menu.
The Miso I ordered was pipping hot and delicious with a perfect miso cloud
At the chef’s recommendation, I ordered the special roll of the day that had fresh salmon (flown in that morning!) and glazed peaches on top.
Followed by a lovely little yellowtail roll with peppy garnish
And a tuna roll with a generous helping of yellow tobikko on top
Presentation was on point for this restaurant, which was an unexpected gem in Salt Lake.
