John Bender: Sushi?
Claire Standish: Rice, raw fish, and seaweed.
John Bender: You won’t accept a guy’s tongue in your mouth, and you’re going to eat that?
-The Breakfast Club [1985]

Like the great Ol’ Dirty Bastard, yeah baby we like it rawww. Despite Utah’s landlocked status, the coast of the Great Salt Lake still has excellent sushi. In our Best Sushi in Salt Lake City list, we look for the freshest fish, unique rolls, and the perfection of the classics. As suckers for Salt Lake City, we will also automatically order any roll that drops an SLC reference like the Blazing Jazz roll at Sapa Sushi, the Sugar House roll at Tsunami, or the Summit and Downtown rolls at Takashi. Side note: I think it’s about time we officially stop calling them Spider rolls in Salt Lake City, and started calling them Spida rolls.

*This Best Sushi in Salt Lake City list is in no way affiliated with Donovon ‘Spida’ Mitchell, the Utah Jazz organization, or the National Basketball Association. Though we will absolutely accept courtside tickets for the name drop.
