Fusion sushi…or whatever you call it
Update 2018: This restaurant says it has moved but the new location is unknown. Therefore, this place, as we know it, is closed.
This Brazilian-operated sushi spot in Santos is especially popular since Sushi Dream closed. Maybe it’s because the salmon and tuna sashimi cuts are mighty fine, but it could also be because this is the only place for sushi that isn’t flanked by rather annoying generic clubs popular with the youngsters along Largo do Santos. If you don’t mind the occasional raspberry on your sushi roll, or the liberal use of sweet and sour jelly, this place can indeed scratch the itch.
They offer a rodizio (all you can eat), which could be worth it if you’re exceedingly starving, but we find that splitting a sushi or sashimi combo gets the job done for less. Nevermind the roll with the canned tuna, I’m pretty sure you can’t avoid it whichever way you go unless you ask specifically. If you’re there to unwind, don’t miss the sangria, made with wine (white, red, or sparkling) and infused with a splash of sake, cinnamon, and fruit. You’ll leave with a little pep in your step for sure.
