Cincinnati: Favorite sushi?
I am looking for people's favorite sushi places in Cincinnati or sushi places they go to the most often. Not so much what you think is the best in the city - but where you go the most often.
I lived in Cincinnati until 5 years ago, and when I left the place I was going to the most often was Maki Express in Clifton on McMillan Street. I have a friend moving to Cincinnati and asking me for recommendations - so I wanted to poll current CHers living in Cincinnati and get their thoughts.
I live in the Detroit area, but on a recent visit I had outstanding sushi at Wild Ginger. Since it was my only sushi in Cincinnati ever, can't really compare, but I'd definitely go back next time I'm in town.
I tend to go to Fusian the most often because I live nearby. It's a fast-casual sushi restaurant, not at all traditional. You go down the line and build your roll. Here is a cool video about them - http://vimeo.com/56719413
Kaze just opened in OTR. I haven't had their food yet but the space is amazing and getting great reviews.
My friends really like Ichiban in Mt. Lookout. They have a 1/2 priced sushi menu every night.
Wild Ginger is really good. I love all of their food.
Drunken Bento in Clifton is popular with UC students.
Ando (on Pfeiffer Rd. in Blue Ash near I-71) has become my favorite. Quality ingredients and a super-friendly staff.
I also like Kyoto.
Overall I think the sushi at Ando is better, but Kyoto's Giant Squid appetizer is amazing. The squid is stuffed with vegetables and shrimp and it's cooked in such a way that, although the rings of squid are huge, they're easy to chew. It's a dish I haven't seen anywhere else in the area.
