Momiji – Seattle, WA

Momiji – Seattle, WA

We heard about this new sushi restaurant from an acquaintance and just had to try it.  It’s owned by the same people that own Umi Sake House in Belltown.  The space is warm and minimalistic.  There’s a very serene vibe about the place which I love.

All of the servers are very friendly and are helpful in suggesting rolls if you don’t know where to start.  Our food came out quickly (in a good way…not rushed) and everything we ate was so delicious.  Each roll tasted so different and was complex in it’s own way.  I have to say, this is by far one of our favorite sushi spots in Seattle, if not our favorite now.  The location is great, parking isn’t horrible and they’re open from 4pm-2am daily!  The fact that we went 3 times in the span of about 10 days should say something:)

*Pardon the photos…as the night went on I lost a lot of light so they’re not that great but I think you’ll get idea

Beautiful little courtyard in the middle of the restaurant

Madai Jalapeño – snapper sashimi, jalapeño, garlic & cilantro with citrus-yuzu ponzu…one of the specials that night…so fresh and flavorful

Crunchy Seattle Roll – salmon, avocado, cream cheese fried and drizzled with teriyaki sauce and sweet chili aioli…best roll I’ve had like this!

007 Roll – spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber & cilantro, wrapped with yellowtail, lime, shishito peppers and jalapeño

White Tiger Roll – spicy yellowtail, cucumber & asparagus topped with wild white king salmon, lime, tobiko & yuzu citrus sauce
