The dreary days of March will end. The daffodils, crocuses, and amaryllis will be the first of many flowers to shout “hello”. The “welcome sign” will be hung at restaurants for the seasonal residents and tourists. Better, fresher fish will soon find its way to the sushi restaurants of Cape Cod. Each year, it seems to me, the fish and sushi improves over prior years. As a consequence I’ve learned choosing what’s best can be subjective; that is, often about my personal needs on any given night out. I thought the fish was terrific last year at many of the Cape’s sushi bars.

As summer approaches, it could be useful if sushi aficionados plus those that find sushi to be a healthy food choice commented on what's available by comparing one eatery to another. How do the various places patronized seem similar or different from one another? There was a time when we'd drive to Tatsukichi, Quincy Market, Boston for good sushi. Back then there was no sushi on Cape Cod.

I‘m on the upper Cape, familiar with Asia, Misaki and Inaho. If I were to compare the three, emphasizing that driving time was important, I would select Asia. All three establishments are good but with Asia much closer, that would be my choice. If a relaxed atmosphere were the issue, Misaki would be my choice. If ambience reflecting Japan where the issue Inaho would be my choice. Today I can list eighteen sushi establishments on Cape Cod, excluding the Islands. Six of the eighteen I have not visited. Perhaps there are more and they should be included.

Here’s my list, with help from Google, starting at the Bourne Bridge:

Way Ho - Buzzards Bay
Peking Palace – Falmouth
Homeport Sushi — Falmouth
Asia – Mashpee Commons
Jimmy’s Sushi at the Picnic Box, Mashpee Rotary
Misaki – Hyannis
Mities Sushi House — Hyannis
Sarku Japan — Cape Cod Mall, Hyannis
Yings – Hyannis & Thai Sushi Café by Ying— Provincetown
Inaho - Yarmouth Port
Scargo Cafe Monday Night (off n' on) – Dennis
Kolbi House – Brewster & Hyannis
Bangkok - Orleans
Mac's Shack – Wellfleet
Cape Sushi at Clem & Ursie’s — Provincetown
Patio Grill — Provincetown
