Friday Night Is Sushi Night

For someone who doesn't consider sushi to be the be-all, end-all in Japanese cuisine, I sure have been eating a lot of it lately. On Friday I found myself at Sushi Matsuri in Gainesville, Florida. While some of my co-workers were drawn in by the more upscale Dragonfly, my friend Jill and I opted for no frills and walking distance. We weren't disappointed.

The unagi (eel, the meaty-looking chunks in the center) was melt-in-your-mouth excellent. The futomaki (upper right) was also delicious, but it fell apart when using chopsticks, so I used my hands. The salmon was a bit tough, but we were pleased with the rest of our platter. Dragonfly may have the ambience, but Sushi Matsuri has good flavor at college-town prices.

Who's up for sushi in Villanova, Pennsylvania, this Friday? Is there sushi in Villanova, Pennsylvania?
