It’s easy to eat great sushi in Tokyo and New York, if you’re willing to rack up a bill. But Seattle, a seaport city, has practically unparalleled access to fresh seafood, too. It’s no surprise that Tasting Table announced eating sushi here is a can’t-miss experience. Legendary sushi chef Shiro Kashiba is largely credited with introducing the Japanese specialty to Seattle almost 50 years ago. Since then, countless restaurants have risen to the challenge of meeting the city’s demand for raw fish. Here are nine places turning fresh fish into flavorful sushi, from Seattle’s best sushi counters and catering companies.
1. Pinto Thai Bistro & Sushi Bar Catering (Broadway E., Seattle)
Japanese and Thai flavors come together at Pinto Thai Bistro, which has been feeding the Capitol Hill neighborhood since 2009. Some of the rolls on their generous sushi platters exhibit Southeast Asian influences. The red mango rolls with crab, seared salmon, mango salsa, and teriyaki balance the tang and subtle sweetness of your favorite Thai takeout dishes.

6. Teasome Catering (Phinney Ave. N., Seattle)
Take a break from the standard roll, and give Hawaii’s answer to sushi a try. The spicy-tuna poke bowl features raw fish and traditional toppings over rice and comes dressed with spicy mayonnaise, sweet potato, and seaweed salad. The signature Teasome poke bowl looks outside the tradition of sushi and arrives piled high with marinated tuna, salmon, grilled shrimp, tofu, sweet potato, zucchini, sunflower seeds, and fish roe.
7. Foodshion Catering (148th Ave. NE, Bellevue)

8. Ichiro Teriyaki Catering (University Way NE, Seattle)
Ichiro Teriyaki is a local favorite for teriyaki, but, unbeknownst to many, it also makes some of the best sushi in Seattle. Try them both in a bento box that comes with a California roll, rice, and your choice of salmon, chicken, beef, or prawn teriyaki.
