If you were stranded on a deserted island and were only allowed one food item, what would it be? Without a doubt mine would be sushi. I’ve been hooked for as long as I can remember.

I grew up in Southern California where my community had a strong Asian influence. This meant I was able to appreciate the cultural food starting from a very young age. Now that I live in Frisco, I’m still able to enjoy my favorite dish because this city offers a wide variety of sushi restaurants. Today, I want to spotlight some of my favorites to consider on your next visit to Frisco.


Sushi Marquee Sushi Marquee

Sushi Marquee

An 80’s themed sushi bar? It’s true. There is such a place and it’s called Sushi Marquee. You walk in and are immediately greeted by a large mural of the legendary Jedi Master, Yoda. Except this time, he has a goatee and is wearing a traditional Hachimaki. Eighties music videos play on the big screen TVs throughout the restaurant and you can’t help but feel like you’ve been transported back in time. When you visit I recommend starting off with their Avocado Bomb Appetizer. Just like the name implies, it’s the bomb. Next, check out their 80’s movie named rolls like Angry Hulk, Godzilla and The Terminator. My personal favorite is the Mr. Miyagi. Maybe because I grew up watching the Karate Kid? Regardless, you can’t go wrong.


Kotta Sushi Kotta Sushi

Kotta Sushi Lounge

Conveniently located right off the Dallas North Tollway is Kotta Sushi Lounge. The delicious Candy Roll has quickly become my personal favorite. Composed of sweet mango and a spicy mayo sauce, it delivers the perfect blend of flavors. If caviar sounds more appealing, I recommend the Royal Roll. It’s made up of salmon, cream cheese, avocado, crab meat, white tuna and topped with black caviar and ponzu sauce. Doesn’t that sound like something royalty would eat? After your meal, take some time to walk around The Shops at Starwood. It offers some of the cutest shops in Frisco.


Kura Sushi

Kura Revolving Sushi Bar

When I picture the future of restaurants I think it will look a lot like Kura Revolving Sushi Bar. Why? Because everything is automated. You order right from your table on a convenient tablet. All food is delivered right to your table via an automated conveyer belt.  It’s so fascinating to watch this amazingly efficient set up. Does it sound a little overwhelming? If so, a waiter will be nearby to refill your drinks and assist you with navigating the tablet, if needed. What makes it even better is that all their sushi is made fresh, organic and has no msg. Once you are done eating, your plates are inserted into a slot machine that gives you a chance to win prizes. It’s a guaranteed fun night out.


Edoko Sushi 

Edoko Sushi & Robata

Robatayaki style cooking is what makes Edoko Sushi & Robata different from all other restaurants in the city. Their cooking takes place in a charcoal-fired hearth, just like in ancient Japan. Not only is the cooking amazing, but the sushi is divine. When you visit, make sure to order the beautiful Edoko Tower. It’s composed of crab meat, spicy tuna, cucumber, avocado, caviar and includes four house special sauces. Snap a picture for Instagram before you dive into the deliciousness. Another stellar choice is the Palm Spring Roll. The cherry tomatoes on top amplify the taste of freshness. With such a diverse menu, it’s sure to satisfy any palate.

Imura Sushi

Imura Sushi & Robata

Imura is a modern sushi restaurant with Japanese chefs serving fresh, delicious and authentic Japanese food. Their prawns and scallops are flown in from Japan and they offer real wasabi with their sushi. There is large variety of riceless rolls on the menu for riceless sushi fans or anyone being carb-conscious.

Imura also offers a traditional Japanese experience of cooking food over charcoal also known as Robota. The Robata menu is unique, flavorful and totally worth a try on your visit!


sushi nunu dishes

Sushi nunu

Sakè flights, a former Uchi chef, and fresh fish flown in every two days—Sushi nunu is not to be missed. This family friendly (yes, they have a kids menu!), fast-casual spot provides high-quality sushi at an affordable price. Expect to see creative cold plates and other Japanese favorites such as rice bowls, Karage, tonkatsu curry, udon, and Katsu dishes. However, the star here is definitely the unique sushi rolls and the fresh sashimi and Nigiri. 

musashi sushi

Musashi Japanese Fusion

Musashi is a contemporary Japanese Fusion restaurant serving all of the sushi classics along with sashimi and nigiri tastings. You will even find some harder to attain Japanese favorites such as uni, otoro, and A5 Miyazaki wagyu. Don’t like sushi? Try their hibachi, miso glazed Chilean sea bass, pan seared duck breast, or even a Japanese Ribeye!
