Sushi has become a beloved culinary tradition across the globe, with its origins dating back to ancient Japan. From traditional sashimi to trendy tempura rolls, there is a wide variety of sushi selections to choose from. Whether you are a sushi connoisseur or a newbie to the world of raw fish and rice, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

When it comes to sushi, freshness is key. The quality of the fish and other ingredients used can make or break a sushi dish. At The Deck at Island Gardens, we take pride in sourcing the freshest ingredients to create delicious and authentic sushi offerings for our guests. Our sushi chefs are skilled in the art of sushi-making and pay close attention to detail to ensure that each roll is a work of art.

One of the most popular types of sushi is sashimi, which consists of thinly sliced raw fish served with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger. Sashimi is a great way to experience the pure flavors of the fish without any distractions. At The Deck at Island Gardens, our sashimi platters feature a variety of fish, such as salmon, tuna, and yellowtail, that are expertly sliced and presented for your enjoyment.

If you prefer something a bit more adventurous, tempura rolls are a great option. Tempura rolls are made by wrapping sushi rice and fillings in seaweed, then lightly battering and frying them until crispy. The result is a crunchy and flavorful roll that is sure to satisfy your taste buds. At The Deck at Island Gardens, our tempura rolls are made to order and can be customized to suit your preferences.

In addition to sashimi and tempura rolls, there are many other types of sushi to explore. Nigiri sushi, which consists of a small ball of rice topped with a slice of fish or other ingredients, is another popular choice. Maki sushi, or sushi rolls, are made by wrapping sushi rice and fillings in seaweed and slicing them into bite-sized pieces. Each type of sushi offers a unique flavor and texture experience that is sure to delight your palate.
