Japanese Food


Japanese Food can be found in a variety of venues in town including several restaurants. One of the most common types is sushi.

[wikipedia]Sushi (literally "vinegar rice") is a type of Japanese food that is quite popular in Davis. You used to be able to see a line in front of Fuji Chef in the morning before it opened, but the opening of Davis Sushi Buffet a short distance away thinned things out. The California Aggie Marching Band-Uh has a sushi eating challenge. There are many opinions about which sushi restaurant is the best in town. Several of these restaurants offer all-you-can-eat buffets.

Japanese Food is of course now also sold in most supermarkets in the form of sushi, nigiri, edamame beans, and gyoza potstickers. At least three of Davis supermarkets make their sushi on location:

These markets offer good quality sushi at lower prices than restaurants, without the service.

I can get the noodles, wasabi and nori at the Nugget, but I'm stuck on making the soup base. Also, if there's any local restaurants that serve good Soba, I'd like to know. —GrumpyoldGeek
