Sushi in Tucson

We have spent the last 4 winters looking for decent sushi in Tucson. We tried Ginza the other night, it is in the Ventana Mall at the intersection of Skyline and Kolb Road. The sushi was not as great as we are used to back east, but it was the best we have found here. The owner/chef Joon will prepare requests, and the menu contained a variety of choices. We would recommend it if you need a sushi fix.

Recommendations in Tucson

Everything in Tucson (not Tuscon) is casual. We would recommend Wildflower and BlueFin (both in Casas Adobe Plaza corner of Ina and Oracle), as well as Bluepoint, North and Firebirds in the Encantada Mall corner of Skyline and Campbell. Also a great Italian Restaurant on La Canada (between Magee and Naranja) called Torinos. A little less pricey would be The Metropolitan Grille located on the east side of Oracle at Magee.

Sushi in Tucson

We have been looking for good sushi in Tucson for 3 yrs. Tried a new place this week called Tatsu Sushi (NE corner of Oracle and Ina). Don't bother. Their ads sound great and a local article inticed us to try it. So, we are still looking. (RA is OK, a chain but if you ask many of the chef's (especially the head chef Sean) will prepare something to your liking.

What's good in Puerto Vallarta?

Leaving for PV in a week for a week. Loved Vista Vallarta in past visits (is it still there? Used to be Senior Cheecos then got a major facelift.) Will try Barcelonas Tapas and of course La Palapa (especially for breakfast, but one dinner on the beach was excellent as well). Looking for outdoor dining, views, good food and drink. Gracias
