New sushi in TC
Tahoe City Sushi is a new arrival to the North Shore food scene. The restaurant is located behind the Gear and Grind in the heart of Tahoe City. It’s a small seven table establishment with a six person sushi bar, owned and operated by longtime Sushi chef Vanessa Fiedler, who moved to Tahoe from the foothills to open this place They’ve only been open about two months but both their credit card machine and liquor license should be online before the winter holidays. When we visited last week they couldn’t yet sell us any hot sake or beer, but they can certainly sell you some fabulous sushi. They have all the staples covered - starting with a good miso soup and edamame. Tahoe City’s nigiri and rolls are definitely something special. Their unagi (fresh water eel) is some of the freshest and best we’ve ever tasted. The Placer Gold is a unique roll with spicy tuna and prawns on the inside, wrapped with salmon and avocado, drizzled with three sauces and garnished with green onions and tobbiko. Another stand out roll is the Landshark with grilled albacore, unagi, spicy sprouts, cucumber, avocado and a touch a lemon. Quite honestly, anything you order will not disappoint, look for Tahoe City Sushi to be around for many years to come. Find them at 690 North Lake Tahoe Blvd. Open every day but Sunday.
