Like utility knives, or OxiClean, casual sushi restaurants are extremely useful. Tsui Sushi Bar is a chill spot with a samurai mural and a u-shaped bar where you can drink sake and eat some raw fish. The special rolls are fun and all, but an acceptable way to have dinner here is to order the seared salmon belly nigiri on repeat until you’re full.
