Went to a great Japanese place on Saturday. Got loads of sushi, the best I've ever tasted, and smelled like tuna, yellow-tail, shrimp, cucumber, salmon, and soy-sauce dipped rice for hours. I highly encourage this place. I think it's called Sakana, on Power and Baseline by Spirits, a Halloween store.

Yup, this place has pretty good lunch specials too its a nice option if you don't feel like driving too far out of the SE Valley.

Lee Lee's Market (Dobson & Warner) sometimes has live crawfish on weekends morning actually maybe weekdays too I dunno never went then. Sometimes it is blue crabs, sometimes crawfish it is in a gray bin near edge of seafood counter near the live tanks. Pretty simple setup, they've got tongs and some brown paper bags, help yourself.

The one off of I-17 in Phoenix is still open. Friends were there for Happy Hour yesterday, and I know currently they're doing their Tuesday-only "all you can eat" Maine lobster special ($42.95).

I would have sworn that their sign is down and they sure looked closed, just driving by-- and with restaurants falling by the wayside every day, including established ones.... Maybe they are just getting a new sign! Sorry for the bad info, everyone!

Seafood lovers tip: Never eat seafood in the desert during a recession, especially sushi! lol
Try to enjoy our local grub like burritos. They are fresher..........>.<
Take a trip over to Cali one weekend and eat your heart out, or have it fedxed from one of the coasts and have a seafood party at home.
That would be my suggestion.

Being in the desert has little impact on sushi, the overwhelming majority of sushi restaurants in the United States purchase sashimi grade fish from suppliers that purposely flash freeze to reduce risk of parasites.

There are plenty of restaurants in Phoenix that serve fresh seafood, dining at them is far cheaper than taking a trip to California.

Yes, contrary to popular belief, most sushi restaurants do not only sell local fish ; ) High-quality sushi restaurants across the country source seafood from Japan, Hawaii, California, etc., and those in Phoenix do the same. I'm actually heading out with a girlfriend tonight to one of my favorite Japanese restaurants - Hana Japanese Eatery - and most of their sushi and sashimi is flown in fresh from Hawaii and Japan, often just a few hours before. I love this place - small, family-owned, and it's BYOB too!
