Umezono- The Best Sushi Lunch Deal in Town
The best deal is the lunch special. For $6.85, you get a soup, salad and your choice of 2 plates including, sushi (4 pieces), sashimi, tempura, tonkatsu, teriyaki and over 15 other menu items. I went with the tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlet) and the sushi. I added a spicy tuna roll on the side, and it cost as much as the rest of the meal, and was completely unnecessary. I would actually avoid the rolls at Umezono completely. It’s just not their specialty, and with the low prices for such good nigiri, you might as well fill up on that. The main menu also features a wide selection of other Japanese dishes including shabu shabu, sukiyaki, and udon bowls.
The decor of Umezono is very traditional. There are even several Tatami rooms, if sitting shoeless on the floor is your thing. While I was very happy to have been turned on to Umezono, I will say that many others have already found it. I met a friend for lunch at 12:30 last week and it was a packed house, so if you go, get there early.
