Could it really be that Philly finally has a top-quality, take-out sushi joint so affordable that you can go several times a week?
The friendly staff welcome you to sit at one of the six bar seats if they’re not taken, but with the options of delivery or take-out, it doesn’t matter. The specialty rolls are loaded with multiple types of fish, avocado, and more, and one (around $9) is filling enough to eat for lunch.
And don’t miss the sashimi appetizer, with two perfect pieces each of everyone’s favorites: yellowtail, tuna, and salmon. But it’s hard to resist the unbeatable deal of three simple eight-piece rolls for $9.95.
Choose from the basics like spicy tuna, yellowtail with scallion, or shrimp tempura and you have yourself a sushi dinner for under $10.
With Vic, Philadelphians no longer have to spend all their money at Morimoto or cross the bridge into New Jersey to go to Sagami to enjoy excellent sushi, at an even more excellent price.
