Utah Sushi RollLunch with the Guys at New Akasaka Sushi Japanese Restaurant

New Akasaka Sushi Japanese Restaurant is located at 3011 East 3300 South Salt Lake City.
It’s hidden amongst a crowded strip mall, but it’s definitely worth the trip.
We keep coming back here for lunches because of the quality and taste of the food.

While it’s not an all you can eat sushi bar it has a buy one get one of equal or lesser value for free.
Having said that it’s not exactly straight forward. You pay for the top two most expensive rolls.

They go the extra mile with service and taste of their sushi.
We ordered a number of different dishes and went out on a limb to try the squid nigiri which we had never tried before.
While it was pretty on the dish, it didn’t taste that great.
Nothing against the restaurant or sushi chef, but I think squid nigiri is an acquired taste.

My favorites of the day were the Firecracker roll and the Candy Roll.
The Firecracker was sweet and spicy all at once and a very pleasant taste.
The Candy Roll had smoked salmon and avocado chucks that were delicious!
It was a great lunch at a reasonable price and we left happy and satisfied.
