As a city with ample access to high-quality fish and nationally celebrated Japanese food, Portland knows its way around some sushi. Still, the sushi scene in Portland has continued to improve over the last few years, from exciting and affordable additions like Fish & Rice and Yoshi’s to nationally recognized staples like Zilla Sake and Nimblefish.
Portland’s sushi scene is in flux: One of Portland’s finest sushi spots, Nodoguro, leaves this map as it searches for a new location, and standout vegan sushi pop-up Mitate has yet to open its incoming cart. Nonetheless, there are several exceptional spots to pop tuna-draped nigiri, swirls of salmon maki, and ultra-creamy slabs of scallop sashimi, either in an air-conditioned dining room or on an al fresco patio. And those who feel uncomfortable dining out just yet can still find takeout sushi made with super fresh, delicate fish, packaged up and ready to go.
