Edamame in Watertown. Great spot tucked into the corner of a tucked away strip mall. Delicious food. Beautiful fresh sushi. Creative, delicious maki. I found this place only because of a discount coupon. But I've been back several times and gladly paid full price.

Not to be confused with Fuji 1591, or whatever it's called. They're across from the Dunkies in the Wollaston neighborhood of Quincy. The 'susi dinner for two' is great! Angelia runs a great restaurant!

Inari Pillow appetizer is amazing, as well as Olympus Maki and Arizona Maki; salmon sashimi. Everything is so fresh and delicious! They also have a Chinese menu which is very good.

That's easy. Often in Chinatown. Go to: Avana Sushi. Delicious, fresh-tasting sushi. Lunch specials unbeatable for prices and choices. Great for take-out. Can get busy, so be prepared to be patient, especially with servers who speak little English.
