It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, sushi is our go-to choice, come snow, hail, rain, or sunshine. There’s just something about dead slabs of seafood placed lovingly over morsels of rice that is appealing.

Whether you’re the kind of sushi connoisseur who yells, “Sacrebleu!” when a sushi noob dares attempt to eat sushi with a fork, or you’re the sporadic sushi eater who adds way too much soy sauce on your nigiri, either way, these five Portland spots will appease all kinds of appetites and have your tastebuds screaming with joy.

Bamboo Sushi is dedicated to ensuring their fish comes from sustainable and high-quality sources. Our favorite menu item is their Chirashi bowl for $26. You can taste the ocean in every bite; that’s how fresh the sashimi is.
