Sakanaya - Great New Japanese Fish Market in Allston

Chazari99 | Feb 18, 2011 09:48 AM

Just got back from lunch at Sakanaya. For $16.70, I had fresh sweet shrimp and tuna sashimi (about 3 orders), a toro "bowl" with rice, avocado and scallions, and pieces of Eel, Yellowtail and Fluke sushi.

This place is about as authentic as it comes vis-a-vis Japanese markets. Its in Allston at 75 Linden Street, and worthy of a try for anyone who is remotely educated about sushi.

The owner used to work at Japan's primary fish market and sells sashimi grade fish for a fraction of what it would cost to eat at a restaurant. Moreover, he'll slice it and provide it in a take out container for you, complete with shredded radish, ginger and wasabi.

A really great experience I felt that I had to share.
