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.

Deep Sushi’s location in the entertainment district that is Deep Ellum makes it a great dinner destination or start to your evening. As for the ambiance, the place is great. With Japanese décor, intimate tables and a fully stocked bar, patrons are sure to enjoy their Deep Sushi experience. My only complaint is that it should be a bit bigger, especially since there isn’t a great place to wait for a table except at the bar. This minor detail isn’t enough to keep me away though. They have great daily specials and fresh sushi that have baited and hooked people for years. So, since tomorrow is Thursday, grab a friend for an early dinner because you can feast on some half-priced sushi eats paired with $1 sake from 5-7p!
