I love all things sushi, and I’m always looking for new places that are fresh and tasty.

It is really a shame that I had been alive for over two decades before I was introduced to Deep Sushi. Thank goodness someone had the good sense to take me to the holy grail of sushi on Elm Street.

Cleverly named Deep Sushi, the hole-in-the-wall restaurant is tucked away in Deep Ellum, and has been a hit since 1996. It has hosted the likes of Chris Farley and Troy Aikman as well as maintaining a super-loyal following amongst Dallas locals.

I often experiment by trying different combinations of rolls every time I place my order, but there is one constant that I insist I must have every time, no exceptions. This particular must-have comes in the form of the Best Roll. I’m not kidding, it really is called the Best Roll, and it is called that for a reason. In the Best Roll, your palate experiences a magical combination of shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, avocado and cucumber all snuggled together in a light soybean wrap.
