Esta publicación también está disponible en: Español

Since opening its doors in 2011, Jeyfer Cedeño, one of the owners of the restaurant, has been dedicated to providing information and clearing up the misconceptions of some diners who come to the business with certain prejudices about sushi.

The Japanese word sushi means “vinegared rice” and it goes beyond eating raw fish. There are a large variety of combinations and ingredients that make this one of the most versatile dishes of gastronomy.

At Sushi To Go, the most requested rolls are varieties of Uramaki, also known as inside-out sushi because the rice is on the outside of the roll.

These include the Fame Roll (¢5,600/ $10.70), which has salmon, shrimp, tuna, kanikama (fish derived from surimi), cream cheese, covered in avocado and eel sauce, as well as the California Roll (¢3,600/ $6.85), which is made with surimi, avocado, cucumber and covered in Masago (a type of caviar).

One advantage of the place is that you can call in advance so they will prepare your order and you can just go by to pick it up. You  can also enjoy eating at the restaurant.

For people with a large appetite, there are combinations from 14 pieces up to 58. Regular customers are catered towith the economical Sushi Fanpacks menu, which is a combo mix of rolls at an affordable price.

In addition, they have traditional Miso soup, which is made with aromatic soybean paste. The presentation of the dishes is outstanding.

To drink, there are local and international beers and traditional Sake, a Japanese rice-based drink.

The establishment is located 175 meters north of the Liberia Courthouse.
