Editorial Review by Brenda Stice. Well worth the drive, Seattle regulars and locals rave about the sushi and eager service at this Edmonds Japanese restaurant.
Watch a master work.
Sushi Moto has wonderfully fresh food, expertly prepared by the chef. He will often recommend items not on the board if asked. The service is eager, if not completely on top of things, but I'm always impressed by the quality of the food.
A nice addition are the little freebies: miso and a vegetable side (and sometimes a small portion of salad), tempura-fried shrimp heads with an order of amaebi, little treats from the chef when you sit at the bar. Also a joy is watching the chef work: the deft movements of his knife, the meticulous care he takes to keep his work area sanitary, and the cute dynamic between him and his wife (who seems relegated to producing rolls) as they scurry around building plates of food to send out to the tables.
Yeah, it's in Edmonds, and yeah, it's shut every Tuesday, and yeah, it's in Edmonds. But it's worth the hoof. If you need another reason to get up there, check out the nearby 99 Ranch Market--although if you try to go after dinner, you're going to be too stuffed to want to shop for groceries.
Definitely worth the drive to Edmonds.
When we moved from Edmonds to Fremont, our biggest concern was "Where will we find sushi as good at Sushi Moto?"
Sitting at the bar is the way to go, but even from the tables it's a wonderful experience. The servers bring a course of miso soup and then seasonal appetizers - I always hope for the steamed broccoli in sesame dressing. Don't bother getting anything but the sushi - the hirame is always wonderful, and the handrolls are excellent.
If you're the adventerous sort, ask the chef to recommend something - often he has delicacies which are not listed on the menu.
Best Sushi in the North End. Sushi moto is a fabulous find in the north end. I almost hate to say how fantastic it is for fear of it becoming "found" and over crowded. The hamachi is butter smooth and the spicy tuna roll keeps me up at night wanting more. Peter the chef will greet you by name if your a regular and sometimes gives you special treats if you sit at the bar...Ive been all over Seattle and the North End trying sushi, and so far this is the best place to go.
