My girlfriend was visiting from out of town and we have a great appetite for sushi. I wanted to treat her to something delicious yet affordable, so I brought her to one of my favorite places for sushi, Momiji Crepes and Sushi (the one on Silverton Rd., not to be confused with the one on Commercial).
It was great because they offer a lunch special for under $8, from 11 AM until 4PM. You get to pick 4 pieces of nigiri and an eight piece roll. That is a deal that can't be beat. I ordered two lunch specials (like I said, I can put down some sushi). I ordered four pieces of escolar (white tuna) and a salmon avocado roll, as well as four pieces of fresh salmon with an eel roll. My friend ordered their 10 pc sashimi plate and their poke salad. The poke salad was made fresh right in front of us and it was super yummy.
They have the latest hours of any sushi place in town for when you get those late night cravings. They also offer drive through service so you can order and pick up your sushi without getting out of your car.
Also worth mentioning is that they offer free miso and hot green tea when you dine in. This is also the only place in town to get $1 nigiri every day. Our food was great, the service was friendly, we devoured everything, and now they're in my speed dial.
