Perched on the 2nd floor overlooking w55th street, Onigashima is quiet and dimly lit Sushi and Soba Noodle restaurant with some great food minus the Midtown attitude nor the cheese-z-ness. At Onigashima they also fly in their own Soba buckwheat flour and hand make their own Soba Noodles like Soba-ya. onigashima sushi A little pricier than Sobaya but also very good. I guess that’s the Midtown real estate factor.

Next we tried some rolls and sashimi including a few pieces of Toro (who wouldn’t?) which was good for NY but it still falls a little short on freshness when compared to the Toro I had out in Seattle at Wasabi Bistro. onigashima sushi I couldn’t complain nevertheless – it was great all around. We also tried a tofu dish that they serve on a huge banana leaf. You basically scoop up the tofu and then mix it with soy sauce and top with thinly sliced scallions. It’s a simple, light dish that bursts with flavor – the mixture of textures in this dish is a delight in itself.

  • Don’t forget to order Hamachi Kama as an appetizer. It’s broiled yellowtail fish neck. With ponzu sauce, it is the most delicious fish dish you will ever have in a Japanese restaurant.
