Yummi Sushi had been open just about a year when it claimed the title of Best Sushi Restaurant in 2010 from the critics at the San Antonio Express-News's online portal, mySA.com. They raved about the inventiveness of both the sushi and non-sushi dishes, saying they "found plenty of hits and few, if any, misses."
The Yummi Dynamite roll was a menu favorite with its combination of spicy salmon, julienne cucumber, rice, and avocado drizzled with garlic sauce. There's nigiri, too, as well as deep-fried, baked, and torched rolls. Sushi dinners give guests a little bit of everything, much like a genie who doesn't like to play by the rules.
Non-sushi range from the traditional (beef teriyaki) to the less common (chicken kaarage, marinated and deep-fried meat paired with mashed potatoes and cabbage). There's plenty to linger over after the meal, including rotating desserts and a succinct but satisfying selection of sakes and Japanese beers.
