When I first heard there was a sustainable sushi restaurant in Minneapolis I was very excited to check it out. I’ve ended up coming back to Kyatchi several times since. The food is not what the average Minnesotan sushi eater is used to. It’s unique and something you’re not going to find anywhere else in town. The service has been consistently great and it has a cool neighborhood restaurant feel to it. Kyatchi has good rice and uses superior quality nori (seaweed). So far I have sampled a decent amount of the menu and I can tell you the highlights include: seaweed salad with several different types of seaweed I’ve never seen before and the dressing is flavorful. Any of the sushi is great, I especially liked the vegetable/pickled sushi. I think the thing that I have appreciated the most about Kyatchi is realizing how good sushi can be without fish. That being said, the Chef’s selection which is fish dominant has been terrific every time. One of the things I have found on the menu that I had never seen in the twin cities before was the “pressed sushi” which was delicious. I had a hard time justifying the $15 price tag for the small of amount of fish but it was something great that I have never seen in Minnesota. The most admirable thing I have noticed so far has been the fact that they don’t serve tempura sushi rolls with spicy mayo, and unagi like all of the other “Americanized” sushi restaurants around town. There have been a couple of inconsistencies with the non sushi dishes including the hotdog with curried cabbage which was overcooked and dry and the cabbage was bland. On the next visit the hot dog was cooked perfectly but I was still wanting something else with it in addition to the curried cabbage. The ramen had the potential to be fantastic but I found it to be under seasoned. This all being said this is a great sushi restaurant to check out if you are looking for a healthier and different sushi option.
