Sushi Yasu Tanaka will surprise you. Or, at least it surprised us. We weren’t expecting to find some of the best sushi we’ve ever had inside a shiny, casual food hall in the Design District. And yet, before we were even halfway through the 8-piece nigiri platter, we wanted to mail a letter to every resident of Miami-Dade County begging them to try this spot. And after we finished the meal with a wagyu hand roll, we Googled the cost of 2.7 million stamps. Turns out, it’s more than we can afford, so we decided to save our money so we can eat here again. Sushi Yasu is not a cheap meal (the 8-piece platter is $38) - but it is a ridiculously delicious one.
