Now that they're opening in Vegas, it's all downhill for me.

Mikuni sets the bar. Or it is the bar. Either way, their sushi is excellent. They're famous for being good at everything, from simple spicy tuna to complex shrimp, tuna, eel, salmon, yellowfish, whitefish, and anything else you could possibly put over, under, or inside rice. They started out in Sacramento, spread to the city's suburbs, and have now gone interstate with new locations in Las Vegas and Denver.

Mikuni is more than a sushi restaurant, though. It's an experience. Most of their locations are trendy, with modern decor and the latest popular music. Still, they try to adapt to the flavor of their locations. For example, the Midtown Sacramento location is ultra trendy, while their Fair Oaks, CA location is more family-style.

There are too many sushi rolls for me to list my favorites, but I particularly miss their Zigzag roll, which featured softshell crab crushed and mixed with avocado, wrapped in rice and soy paper. I have yet to find anything similar anywhere else.

Now that they are going to open a location in Vegas, I can foresee my bankruptcy. It'll be worth it though.
