Spending the day at the beach can make a body hungry, especially for some of the goodies that come fresh from the sea. Of course, it’s a lot easier to go to a sushi restaurant than to try to catch dinner yourself, and there are many excellent choices nearby The Breakers. Here are three places for guests at our Myrtle Beach resort to get their sushi fix:
Soho: Just one block inland on 21st Avenue North sits this Asian-fusion restaurant that is one of the best on the Grand Strand. In addition to a wide selection of sushi and sashimi rolls, Soho features a diverse menu of Asian and American favorites, specializing in steaks and seafood, to keep the non-sushi fans in your party content. Happy hour and dinner attract a trendy crowd but casual dress is fine. The house special Soho Roll, featuring salmon, spicy tuna, yellow tail tuna, eel, scallions, Mesago and jalapeno topped with a spicy sweet sauce.
King Kong Sushi: If you’re planning a trip to Broadway at the Beach, which is just a short drive up 21st Avenue North, be sure to check out this popular spot. King Kong offers the largest sushi menu in town and the selection includes combinations of flavors you won’t find anywhere else. The Tuna Mania is a 12-piece roll of spicy tuna wrapped in tuna slices and charred with a blow torch. King Kong also serves soups, salads, starters and hibachi dishes. Enjoy the cool air-conditioned dining area or sit in the shade on the back porch overlooking Lake Broadway under ceiling fans.
Sugami: Located just a short drive north on Kings Highway, this Japanese hibachi also serves excellent sushi and a relaxed environment. Outfitted with hibachi tables and an outdoor seating area in addition to the main dining room, Sugami attracts a nice crowd of locals and visitors for quality food without the pretense. The bar serves hot and cold saki and Japanese imports as well as all the popular drinks, wines and beers. The house special Sugami Roll includes yellow tail, eel, crab, avocado and tempura flakes.
