Jessica Boyington visits the top sushi restaurants in Philadelphia (Part 1)

PHILADELPHIA WPVI — Sushi is thought to have originated in Southeast Asia. Today, we eat it all around the world, with Philadelphia being no exception.

Here are some great sushi spots in the City of Brotherly Love. I’m sure they’ll be a hit!

Tuna Bar is a Japanese-inspired raw bar that opened in Old City four year ago.

Ken Sze, the owner, transformed an old parking lot into a modern, chic, and approachable dining area with some of Japan’s best cuisine. I was given a sampling of all the nigiri and was taught how to properly eat them. He even made a nigiri from seared wagyu meat!

I tried some of his special creations such as the Liberty Roll with spicy tuna, seared tuna, and puffed Rice and Lemon, and the Broad Street Roll which had spicy salmon, avocado and all the sauces I love. As a side dish, the shrimp and pork-fried rice is delicious.

I washed it all down by Winston’s Heat cocktail, which included some wasabi!

Tomo Sushi and Ramen opened in Old City in 2004.

Andy and Steven were friends, chefs, and business partners. They knew they wanted something different. A sushi and ramen restaurant that appeals to both vegetarian and vegan customers. They did it with this place.

The Red Dragon vegan roll was made with eggplant and tomato, which I mistakenly thought was tuna and eel. They also give a new spin to classics like the Salmon Don. A bowl of salmon done “5 ways”Sprinkle on top of sushi rice

Their Tomo Roll, which includes spicy tuna and avocado with cilantro and more tuna on the top, is one of their most loved. The Hako Roll with avocado, unagi sauce and seared salmon was almost too beautiful to eat.

Let the good times roll! With some sake, of course! Join us next week for Part Two of Action News Mornings!
