Best Sushi

READERS, UPSTATE | Mikimotos Asian Grill & Sushi Bar
1212 N. Washington St., Wilmington, 656-8638

READERS, DOWNSTATE | The Cultured Pearl
301 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-8493

CRITICS, UPSTATE | Okura Japanese Cuisine Restaurant
703 Ace Memorial Drive, Hockessin, 239-8486
Classic Okura has upped the ante on sushi, adding offerings such as white fish with caviar and mango salsa to its menu of traditional and specialty rolls. Still, favorites remain, such as the Hockessin roll, with fresh tuna and avocado that gets tempura fried, then drizzled with spicy mayonnaise sauce, scallions and caviar. The house-standard Okura roll is a fried roll of nori-wrapped yellowtail with asparagus.

59 Lake Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-6476
Evidenced by the presence of the famous Hairy Mexican roll, Stingray shares a few sushi recipes with its upstate sister restaurant, Mikimotos. But Stingray originals are just as good. The Man Eater combines flash-fried salmon with jalapeño, spicy mayo and cilantro. The Stingray roll pairs shrimp tempura with avocado, tobiko and unagi, then tops it with Japanese mayonnaise.

1810 Wilmington Pike, Glen Mills, Pa., (610) 358-5538
Very few items at Masamoto aren’t excellent. From fluke sashimi to tuna belly, it’s hard to go wrong. But it’s the way chef-owner Johnny Cai plays with texture and color that puts Masamoto sushi leagues beyond most in the area. A Vietnamese Roll sprinkles tempura flakes over kani, avocado and spicy tuna, mixes in a little spring salad, then wraps everything in rice paper. It’s a mouthful, but it’s so, so worth it.
