In the five years that I've lived in the Cordova area, the Asian restaurant in the shopping center with the Malco Cordova movie theater has had several identities. It started as Wasabi, then it became Mikado. Now, it's iSushi, and silly name aside, this might be my favorite so far.
Like its predecessors, iSushi is, well, a sushi restaurant with other Japanese fare. Unlike the others, it seems like there was thought and effort put into developing the flavor profiles of the dishes.
The sushi is fresh, and the choices are numerous. Specialties like the soft shell crab roll and the mango dragon roll feature ingredients that don't grace most Japanese restaurants' menus. But, their traditional options like the California roll and the fried salmon roll are just as good.
But my favorite item might just be the simplest. The stirfry noodles (I like mine with chicken) are a more delicious version of lo mein. And while I know it's not traditional Japanese fare, it sure is tasty. The sauce is very savory, there are plenty of crisp veggies, and I can get three meals out of one $6.00 order. Eating at iSushi can be cheaper (and better) than any fast food restaurant. With fresh, tasty food and extremely reasonable prices, I hope that iSushi will be here to stay.
