Marumi Sushi - Plantation

I was just reviewing my post index and realized that I never posted this one from last summer.  Anyway, this is easily one of the best izakayas restaurants in Broward County and one of my favorite spots. And don't be fooled by the name, Marumi Sushi.  Yes, the sushi is outstanding but the real gems are found inside the large izakaya style menu along with the dynamite daily specials board.   

Think Yakko-San but better.  Why? because they take the sushi here seriously and it is on par with some of the better spots around town plus the daily Specials Board is always extensive and full of fantastic plates.  

Oh and the executive chef and co-owner, Teruhiko Iwasaki was responsible for a lot of the great food that came out of the Yakko-San kitchen at it's original location on Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach.  If you were a fan of that Yakko you will love Marumi.  Iwasaki partnered up with chef Tetsu Hayakawa and opened Marumi in 2007.  

If you are a food lover on the adventurous side I would highly recommend paying them a visit.  It's on the casual side with a loud and fun vibe. 

I've had too many great dishes to list them all but some of my favorites are below.
