Whenever I am craving for a western version of sushi -or something "similar"- I head to Most, either to the old one close to Shanghai Library or to the newest one in the gastro hub “More Than Eat” at 758 Julu road. Why? Because not only they have niguiris or sashimis –which are really good and fresh-, but also ROLLS (without Philadelphia cheese though), and their selection of rolls is remarkable.
The place is quite modern and neat for being an Izakaya, which generally are more noisy and casual. The only problem is that the place closes pretty early but I guess the reason is because the general place closes early.
Went with some friends and had the broiled salmon, beef and foie grass, tuna avocado and prawn avocado rolls (8 pieces each portion). Also, as “Izakaya” name indicates, you have more options in the menu like udon, soba, ramen, tempura, and a wide variety of yakitoris. We also had fried udon in spicy sauce with vegetables and eggplant on miso dressing.
Good prices and portions, fresh fish, quick service and nice ambient. Definitely is an ace under the sleeve for those days craving for a western-alike sushi.
