At times, we have champagne dreams on a beer budget, and sometimes, those dreams do come true.
I was fortunate to celebrate another year on this planet, and, my friends took me to Mitch’s Sushi in the airport industrial area for this occasion. They knew this place was on my bucket list as one of the premier places to eat in Honolulu – Hale ‘Aina Award winner – and now, I can scratch this off my list.
Mitch’s Sushi is a unique place where the core business of this establishment is a wholesale seafood distributor for hotels and restaurants throughout the state of Hawaii. The restaurant occupies the front of the warehouse on the corner of Ohohia and Ualena Streets that includes a five seat sushi bar with a few tables.
We ordered almost everything on the list of nigiri sushi; toro, maguro, hamachi, etc. All of the seafood on menu is flown in from all over the world and the manager can show you the holding tank in the warehouse where the lobster and abalone are kept for optimal freshness.
Mitch’s Sushi has menu service available with a BYOB option, and reservations are highly recommended.
