Boston Sushi: Downtown Lunch at Samurai Restaurant

Boston Sushi Downtown

In honor of all the water that's been pouring down in Boston lately, we had another sushi lunch downtown!

Since it was right at lunchtime, the house was packed, and we had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table. The good news is that they offered to have us order our food while we waited for a seat. Once we sat down, the food came out almost immediately, so I was pretty impressed with their organization.

Spring Rolls - I loved the cute plate they came out on.

Miso Soup - I preferred it to be a bit hotter than it was, but it was tasty nonetheless.

Honda Roll - Salmon and avocado.

Alligator Roll - Eel with eel sauce on top, with shrimp tempura, cucumber and avocado inside.

My favorite was the Dragon Maki,which was topped with eel and avocado, with eel sauce, crab stick, avocado, and cucumber on the inside. The sauce was so good and reminded me of thousand island dressing.

Unfortunately we were not brought hot tea or even water, and had to ask for water halfway through our meal.

All in all, we had a great time at Samurai Restaurant. It wasn't mind blowing, but definitely decent sushi and service.

Comment Challenge: I love unagi and avocado! What's your favorite sushi roll?

  1. I literally could eat sushi every day if not for the threat of mercury poisoning!!! I haven't been to Samurai in such a long time - I worked downtown and we'd order from there every few weeks!! I have a favorite sushi spot in Brookline that I go to pretty much weekly!

  4. The Dragon Maki looks amazing. I can't remember if I ever ate at Samurai Restaurant when I lived in Boston. I'd have to say that my favorite roll is not a roll but just nice, fresh, high quality sashimi. :-) But I'm a fan of anything with eel and avocado as well.

  5. Oh Chelsea. I just really want to come eat with you. Seriously. Also, there are a few high-end sushi places you should eventually try! I love Uni Sashimi Bar in Back Bay (they have a weekly ramen night that's amazing!) and O Ya Restaurant (start saving up for 10 years from now, haha). And as far as my favorite sushi roll, probably negihama!! :)

  6. Ah I feel the same! I'm seriously pushing it with my weekly intake of sushi, salmon and tuna salads, whoops! I just tried a sushi joint on washington street in Brookline and it was pretty good! Still looking for one that rivals the sushi from back home though :)
