When I need my sushi fix (which seems to be weekly as of late), I go to one place…Haruki East. With locations in Wayland Square in Providence and Oaklawn Ave in Cranston, I can never seem to wrong with their selection of maki rolls. When it comes to raw seafood, freshness is the most important ingredient. At Haruki, everything is super fresh and delicious which keeps me coming back time and time again.
Whether you like simple, clean sashimi or bite-size rolls smothered in sauce, Haruki’s extensive menu offers whatever you are in the mood for…all at very reasonable prices. A personal favorite is the “Tuna Crisp” (pictured above) which is made with tuna, avocado, cream cheese and then doused in spicy mayo and drizzled with a sweet sauce. The entire roll is lightly fried which creates quite the textural contrast. Plus, everything is better fried, right?
My favorite dish to order is the “Sushi Deluxe” which contains 8 pieces of assorted nigiri sushi (all selected by the chef) and 12 pieces of maki sushi (typically 6x California rolls and 6x tuna rolls). There’s plenty of variety in this platter, so I can bounce back and forth from nigiri sushi to standard maki rolls between bites. For only $20 bucks, this dish is great value…especially considering the quality!
So whether you’re a sushi aficionado or just a beginner looking for a new adventure, grab some chopsticks and head to Haruki East. I can’t seem to get enough of this joint!
