Sushi - Hewlett/Lynbrook/Valley Stream area
have to agree that taiko is a stellar choice. one of my all time fav rolls, the tropical one, comes from there. i like a lil fruit in my sushi & that one has salmon & mango, nuts & some mix of wasabi & a sweet chili sauce. really good. salmon there can be a lil fishy though. make sure miya makes them, hes the best.
if youre willing to drive a lil straigh tup noreth theres a great place matsuya in great neck. its in some big shopping center (also a wild ginger there thats pretty good) & looks like a hole in the wall from outside but super tasty & fresh. they also do rolls with mango & i recommend the siamese bang or something like that - it has these shrimp in a sweet spicy sauce. also theyve got sashimi rolls - fish wrapped in more fish :) the foodie in me found some good pics of their dishes http://www.thesushicritic.com/matsuya...
theres also yummy sushi by the source mall at shiros, if youre heading north again. owned by same ppl as taiko, they have "jake" rolls - havent seen elsewhere besider those two place. its a mnix of shredded crab & shrimp with spicy mayo - so good. they have rolls where they warm it & it melts in the mouth
