One of the most important aspects of traveling (as we all know) is the food! The long list of restaurants you scribble down in your notes ahead of time and add to your itinerary, is truly an art to foodies across the nation. Did you know that among the top cuisines most searched for when traveling, ethnic food is usually at the top of the list – even more specific...SUSHI! When it comes to sushi, Greater Wilmington has quite the list! From fine dining, gourmet rolls to on the go poke bowls, the area is full of this unique Japanese dish.
We’ve listed a few fan-favorite sushi spots you can’t miss during your Greater Wilmington getaway.
Al Chu’s Sushi
Wilmington chef, Al Chu, earned his status for his work at Wilmington’s own, Mikimoto's Asian Grill. After parting ways with the restaurant, many were hungry for Chef Chu’s return to town. Now visitors and residents alike can find Chef Chu behind the counter inside downtown’s DE.CO, the city’s first and only food hall located next to the historic HOTEL DU PONT. Selections at Al’s include sushi rolls, sashimi, Hawaiian poke bowls, and more all beautifully and uniquely prepared with a balance of flavors and fresh ingredients.
Mikimoto's Asian Grill
Located on Washington Street in center city Wilmington, Mikimoto’s is an upbeat, unique dining experience. Dim lighting, modern décor, and a bar and lounge area, this fan favorite is the ideal location to enjoy some of the freshest sushi in town. Enjoy beautifully hand rolled sushi to order and an extensive chef-inspired hot menu with featured dishes such as Mongolian BBQ Lamb Chops, varieties of Dim Sum and handcrafted noodles perfect to appease any palate.
