Sushi Hiro

Located off of Eastern Ave. in the massive shopping plaza with restaurants like Cafe Zupas and Taco y Taco, Sushi Hiro is a welcome addition to the dining scene. Folks in Henderson don’t have to drive to the Strip or China Town for excellent Japanese food. This modest and modern spot has a long sushi counter, the best spot to dine if you want to interact with the chefs while watching them in action. The omakase (two different options) is reasonably priced at $49 and $69, a bargain for the quality and amount of food you get.

Halibut sashimi in tofu oil and yuzu began the meal, with an oyster shooter next. A large portion of shrimp and vegetable tempura followed, all lightly coated and exceptionally crispy.

Fish is where they excel. Tuna from Spain, yellowtail, and ocean trout were all sizable cuts of quality sashimi. The large salmon kama (collar) followed — deep fried and sitting in a rich and aromatic agedashi broth. The sushi course was also excellent, particularly the tuna and red snapper. All came glazed with house made sauces.

Ending the meal was a rich and dense green tea cheesecake — creamy like a traditional American style cheesecake instead of a lighter and fluffier Japanese cheesecake.

This place is special. The folks here are doing things rarely seen east of the Strip. Skip the chain restaurants when dining on Eastern Ave. and check out Sushi Hiro.

  1. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different web address and
    thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.
    Look forward to going over your web page repeatedly.

  2. Good day! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
