If someone ever needs a reason to eat more sushi: International Sushi Day is being celebrated on June 18. Though apparently, in Brickell Miami, sushi days are any /every day.
As of 2022 there are about 16K Sushi Restaurants in the US, according to consulting company IbisWorld with States like California, New York & Texas seeing the most number of sushi / Japanese cuisine locations.
Back in Miami & according to Travel Guide TripAdvisor, there are 233 Japanese, Japanese fusion & sushi restaurants from Homestead to Boca Raton.
Ranking #1 is PaperFish Sushi Bar, which is celebrating one year anniversary in Miami & a soon to open sister location on Espanola Way in the summer, so for international Sushi Day we decided to take a look at visitors’ preferences.
Looking into 53K restaurant visitors year to date, we combined two categories: top sellers & the most-ordered menu items. No, not necessarily the same list, though some obvious & delicious duplicates.
Here are the Mid Year WINNERS:
Best ALL Categories:
Most Popular: Acevichado
Ranking in 10: Hot Truffle
Furai is # 8/10 top seller.
Salmon Aburi is Top 3 in Popularity.
Right in the Middle: Gyoza a la Nippon
Seller & Popular: Misuna (Photo), PF Bao, Hamachi Jalapeno
Call me Popular: Hand Roll & Edamame (photo)
BEST SPECIALTY! is Thai Rice Kamameshi.
Last but not least, an amazingly logical discovery:
50% of both Top Sellers & Popular items are SIGNATURE dishes.
While 50% of Top Sellers are also Signature Cocktails. WAY TO GO!
