Sat in Midtown Manhattan, right next to the shopping destination Saks Fifth Avenue, is Sushiden. Originally a chain from Tokyo, Japan, this understated sushi joint is especially popular amongst office folk. Sushiden, although follows a more traditional “no frills” route, has great tasting and quality fish. It’s menu focuses on sushi and sashimi with a few cooked dishes, is of great value and portions.
Lunch Sets range from 20 – 60USD per person, with selections from sashimi to rolls and cooked sets like tempura, will prepare you to combat the rest of a busy New York work day! Highly recommended for tourists, and those who want a quick lunch at affordable prices!
Savory roll – Tuna, salmon, yellowtail, sea urchin, salmon roe, avocado and cucumber
- Very big and similar to the Futomaki.
- Uni didnt really belong, with flavors nit really marrying with other Sashimi.
- Roll also had too many different types of Sashimi. Overall, OK but could be better.
Bonito Sashimi– Red/pink fish on the right
- Very fresh and sweet, paired with ginger and scallion to bring out freshness.
Aji Sashimi– Pink/white fish on the left
- Firmer white fish and more fishy than bonito.
- Again, extremely fresh.
Set Salad with ponzu dressing
- Standard item in most set lunches.
- Dressing was tangy and refreshing. Otherwise, nothing special.
Sashimi Set – Harami, Salmon, Tuna, Scallop, Jumbo clam (deluxe assortment)
- Served with rice and beautifully sliced, it is one of the smaller sets on the menu.
- Fresh, with a good mix of different fish.
Mochi Ice Cream
- Thin and chewy skin, with a generous amount of Ice Cream filling, which is what you look for in a good mocha ice cream.
- Ice cream inside was also very creamy but not too sweet.
Matcha Ice Cream
- Creamy and full of matcha taste.
- Homemade and not too sweet.
- Big scoop/serving, that is definitely satisfying!
