A fresh and delicious spicy tuna roll is a great way to satisfy your sushi fix. Atlanta is filled a variety of sushi bars, but my favorite ones have some of the best spicy tuna in town. So, when you need that extra haute-ness in your life, grab your chopsticks and head to these Atlanta sushi spots.
This chic Midtown restaurant means business. When Steel says hot, they mean it. If you think you can handle it, try the Firecracker Roll, made with spicy tuna and topped with crab and jalapeno. Since your mouth will already be on fire, go ahead and splurge on the Tuna tower(pictured above middle). We also love the huge selection of sake available by the carafe or bottle. The Hana Awaka, is sweet and sparkling and is a great way to cap a spicy meal.
Steel is located at 950 W. Peachtree St. 404.477.6111
A long time sushi favorite in Atlanta, you can count on MF Sushibar to roll some great spicy tuna. Grab a seat at the sushi bar and watch the sushi chefs create culinary masterpieces with their “Magic Fingers”. Although every roll on the menu is delightful, the spicy tuna stands among the top. Save yourself some time and order a second roll before you devour your first. You will thank me later.
MF Sushibar is located at 265 Ponce de Leon Ave 404.815.8844
This glamorous Buckhead restaurant is the trendy choice when it comes to sushi. But before you fill up on martinis at the bar, get some sushi in your tummy. We love the weekday half priced Happy Hour at Bluepointe . Starting at 4:30 p.m. get your spicy tuna fix with $4 rolls. But even if you don’t make it before 7:30 p.m., the sushi is well worth it.
Bluepointe is located at 3455 Peachtree Rd. 404.237.9070
Maybe it’s our love of the Midtown Mileor maybe we just love the whole ambiance, but we just love the new sushi hot spot Ra Sushi. The sushi menu is endless and we can’t resist the ‘RA’llipops made with tuna, salmon, yellow tail , spicy tuna mix, lettuce, asparagus and cucumber, skewered with a garlic ponzu sauce (pictured above). Delish.
Ra Sushi is located at 1080 Peachtree St. 404.267.0114
The only problem with Genki, the sexy sushi house in Buckhead, is that we always end up eating too much. When you have more than one favorite on the menu, chances are you are going to order both. At Genki, we can’t help but order the Dynamite Roll, which is tuna, salmon and yellow tail with cucumber, tomato, scallions topped with tobiko and a four chili sauce. And if that’s not enough to set you off, the Tuna Symphony entree will surely do the trick.
Genki is located at 3186 Roswell Rd. 404.844.8319
