North Carolina and Charlotte have no shortage of sushi restaurants. In fact, I could probably name 10-15 great ones off the top of my head. So when I saw this list from LoveFoodBlog, I was curious as to what they would declare the best in North Carolina. And honestly, I was a little surprised. Not that their top sushi restaurant was in Charlotte, but at what it actually was. I do think I have tried this place but it didn’t make a huge impression on me. Guess that means I’ll have to make another trip! No harm in that. Now South Carolina’s winner also has a location here and that one I was not as surprised by! I also found a couple I’d like to try on upcoming trips. Now to book those flights!

How did this list come about? Well, LoveFoodBlog “scoured the country for the best Japanese restaurants, serving everything from signature rolls and traditional nigiri (rice topped with seafood) to innovative twists on the signatures.” So this list is completely their opinions. Fair warning, you’ll probably get hungry just reading this. I know I did!

Did North Carolina’s winner surprise you? What would you vote the best sushi restaurant in Charlotte? Let us know on social media!
