Sashimi Lunch at Purple International Bistro

Sashimi lunch at Purple Bistro, westend greenville, scI love seafood and I love sashimi especially when it is done well. You can’t honor the freshness of good fish any more then sashimi. After a social media onslaught of promotion by loyal fans and friends, I decide to check out Chef Jack and the newly opened Purple International Bistro and Sushi. The restaurant is located on Main Street downtown Greenville, SC in the Westend area, walking distance from my office.

I judge most sushi places by their sashimi (thinly sliced raw seafood) plates because you can’t hide behind anything. The fish is either good or bad, no masking it with sauces and seasonings. Chef Jack’s sashimi lunch plate pictured above was the freshest of the freshest, perfect. The lunch plate featured crab, salmon, tuna, octopus and a few others (toro maybe?). We ordered some edamame for the table and that plus my sashimi was the perfect lunch. Light, healthy yet filling.

Another sign of the quality of Purple is that they make their own condiments. Seriously, who makes their own wasbi and soy sauces? Well, they do. That is dedication to the craft.

It seems a new sushi place is opening every week here in Greenville but I will definitely be back to Purple, it was truly some of the best sashimi I have had here. I highly recommend this restaurant. I haven’t been for dinner but if the lunch is as good as dinner, you can’t go wrong.

Sushi and Sashimi Lunch Special at Tsunami

Sushi and Sashimi lunch special a TsunamiThis is the Sushi and Sashimi combo lunch special at Tsunami Greenville in downtown Greenville, South Carolina.

A few weeks back I visited Tsunami Greenville to meet up with a friend. I used to frequent Tsunami but I hadn’t been there for lunch in a long time (It’s ALL THE WAY on the other side of main from my office:-). At the insistence of my friend we meet there. Tsunami’s has been here for awhile and considered by most to have really good sushi. I ordered the lunch special (about $12) which comes with soup or salad. I suggest the salad with the ginger dressing, they put way to much on the salad, which I usually hate, but not in this case. The sushi and sashimi were excellent and as you can see from the picture, you get a lot for the price. I would definitely recommend Tsunami for a quick, light and filling lunch.

Tsunami Greenville (they have five other locations in SC) is located at 106 E. North St.
Greenville, SC one block east of Main Street.
