It's hard to keep great places secreted away, and Toyoda's reputation has, for better or worse, become public knowledge. Better for business, yes, but worse for relaxed dining, as you can tell by the crowds that descend on the small eatery. Still, the food is a wonderful treat. Sushi is fresh and well-presented, and the nigiri is particularly good. Gyoza, the Japanese version of potstickers, are also celebrated by patrons, who munch them eagerly. Geoduck clams continue the seafood theme, along with black cod broiled with sake paste and other seafood entrees. The ambience is laid-back and friendly, bolstered by the charm and ready smiles of Mr. Toyoda and his wife.
Best for Japanese Because: Toyoda Sushi offers an unexpected gem in Lake City. Here, diners find an intimate, family-run restaurant that serves delicious Japanese dishes.
