Kitaro

Cheap sushi in the city is a dime a dozen. The sushi challenge in San Francisco is finding an inexpensive sushi restaurant that actually serves high quality sushi. Good and cheap sushi places come along only once or twice a neighborhood, but if you ever find yourself in the Outer Richmond, do not hesitate to stop by Kitaro to pick up a few awesome rolls.

Kitaro is a perfect place to grab a bite with a couple of good friends, or even a table for one. They have an extensive menu that caters to everyone’s taste, which is why sushi lover’s travel from all over the city to get their hands on the unique and amazing rolls here. Their Godzilla Roll is perhaps the most popular with its mix of spicy tuna tempura and their special house wasabi sauce, it quickly becomes any foodie’s first choice. If you’re looking for something that will wake you up with a bit of a kick, then try the Dynamite Roll. It’s a tuna roll that is lightly battered with Sriracha chili sauce drizzled across the top, yum yum. The combination of flavors gives any mouth a great experience.

Though its location on Geary and 22nd does seem like a bit of a hassle just to get some sushi; it is hands down worth the ride on the 38 Muni line. Plus, next time you pick up something from Safeway, flip over your receipt, and you just might have a coupon for the restaurant. High quality and a great value, it doesn’t get much better than Kitaro. |Kitaro|
