El Paso supermarkets that carry fresh sushi?

New to El Paso (obviously) & wondering if any supermarkets (preferably on the west side) carry fresh sushi in their seafood department? I'm from Florida & I used to get it at Publix & take it home, they made it fresh every day & it was convenient, but from what I can tell there are no Publixes here.

  1. First off, why would you want supermarket sushi? Gross! Now to answer your question, Albertson's. If you are looking for larger sushi platters, Costco.

      That's why I specified FRESH sushi in the SEAFOOD DEPARTMENT, lol. Sushi restaurants are expensive & you can't hold it in your hands & look at it before you buy it... plus I was rarely ever with anyone else who liked sushi when I wanted it. At Publix, like I said they made it fresh every morning & if you got there early enough in the day when they were still there they would make something custom for you, & it was a really big selection, anywhere from 9-12 pieces in a package for $7-9. Thanks for the info, do you know if they make it there in the store or if it's crappy generic Calfornia rolls that get shipped to them??

        Costco's sushi is not made fresh for sure but I am not sure about Albertson's? You might want to call the one on Redd Rd (Desert Blvd.). If they don't make it fresh there you could opt for delivery from Sushi Express on Mesa; not my pick for sushi in town but I do not know of any other place that delivers.

            I got some new info for you. Although it's not exactly what you were looking for, UTEP has a place in the Union that makes fresh sushi daily which is very affordable ($7-10); sold in those to go packages.
