Takashi of Salt Lake City One of the Best in the Country

Last year Travel and Leasure Magazine voted Takashi of Salt Lake City one of the best sushi bars in the entire US.  We’ve taken a lot of flack over the years about not having great food in Utah because we so far away from the freshest sushi, but I have eaten sushi in other states and think we have some dang good sushi here in Salt Lake City and other cities around Utah.

“There’s a constant buzz in Salt Lake City’s top sushi restaurant, Takashi. But a brief moment of silence isn’t far away when items like a roll of salmon and albacore drizzled with a special hot sauce or stellar pieces of thinly sliced scallops appear on the table. Chef Takashi Gibo pays attention to every detail, from the stylish décor in this boxy restaurant to the Tokyo-quality fish. The authentic flavors also take a creative turn when Gibo adds touches to dishes like the Caribbean Roll of yellowtail and fresh mango spiked with hints of chiles. The extensive selection of sake is also worth checking out.”


Takashi Voted Best Sushi in Utah

Takashi is located in downtown Salt Lake City and is voted by many to be the best sushi in Utah or the best sushi in Salt Lake County.  Their magical sushi roll creations are a step above the average sushi bar. Their names take after the Fab Five (the Beatles Strawberry Fields, Yellow Submarine, and Imagine) and a selection of movies (Puff the Magic Dragon, Forest Gump, Sebastian and The Little Mermaid).

Along with a creative flair for naming and creating traditional American sushi they also have an assortment of vegetarian sushi with ingredients like pickled burdock root asparagus, tomato, portabellas, green beans, sweet potato, peppers, jalapenos and sea salt.

They have a selection of wines by the glass or bottle both white and red wine.  If you want to be a little more traditional you can try the sake instead.  If you don’t want alcohol you can get ‘Mexican’ Coke or other Coke products, iced teas, limeade or juices.

Here are a few of the specialty rolls.

  • Strawberry Fields- escolar strawberry spicy sauce fresh chili peppers toasted almonds eel sauce.
  • Yellow Submarine -yellow tail yellow fin shiso spicy sauce yuzu flavored tobiko with tataki sauce.
  • Imagine – albacore tuna avocado shiso spicy tuna tartare tobiko.
  • Black Magic Woman -sablefish roasted red bell pepper spicy sauce lemon pesto ponzu and seasame seeds.
  • Magic Dragon – spced crab avocado sliced unagi eel sauce and sesame seeds.
  • Sebastian -spiced crab avocado and sesame seeds.
  • The Little Mermaid – tuna spicy sauce scallops shiso and wasabi tobiko
  • Forest Gump – shrimp tempura cucumber spicy sauce mutsu habanero infused massago and sweet sauce.

If you want something a little more adventurous try the T&T Hand Roll.  It is made with yellow tail, albacore, salmon and green onion.  The kicker is the “Hotter than Hell’ dipping sauce.

So if you want to experience some of the best sushi in Utah stop by Takashi and try one of their special sushi rolls.
