We finally cracked the code on Sushi boats. Where a Sushi Boat for Three at Sakura 6 is cheaper than a Sushi Boat for Two at Sapporo Haru, you actually get a ton more food at Sapporo Haru in the boat for two.
It’s funny, because Todd and I have been eating numerous sushi boats all over and we always thought Sakura 6 was the best. But last week during the 4th of July, Sakura 6 was unfortunately closed. So we went to Sapporo Haru and got a sushi boat for two, but it was surprisingly huge. I thought they made a mistake and made one for four. So yesterday, we went to Sakura 6 for a boat for three. We went through it quick, but still satisfied.
Then somehow we decided to go to get another sushi boat at Sapporo Haru. I think it was all the free sake talking. We were like let’s just get a boat for two to share. We really just wanted to drink more. But it was insane how big it came out again. It wasn’t a fluke. Sure, it costs more ($55 vs a boat for 3 at Sakura 6 for $49), but it’s way so much more food and it looks better. I guess you get one less soup or salad. But the salad is so much bigger there too.
Both places give you free unlimited hot sake. Maybe Sakura 6 seems a little more generous. But I feel like Sapporu Haru is the clear winner in this boat race.
Dang, that was pretty stupid eating two sushi boats in a row.
