Avana Sushi

I am excited about having Chinatown restaurants on the blogs radar lately. There are spots I have been frequenting for years that are finally getting their due. A couple weeks ago we took a look at Hei La Moon, then last week we talked Pho. Now, Avana Sushi. This hole-in-the-wall four seat counter is surrounded by about five tables in a mini-food court off of Beach Street. I typically grab takeout and bring it back to the office, but dining-in is also a treat!  A waitress ensures you will always be well taken care of here despite the haphazard ambiance. 

You can't go wrong with the luncheon special - for $7 you get a choice of 1 maki, 2 sides and miso soup. Pictured above are a couple different combos: spicy salmon avocado roll + seaweed salad + tuna nigri, and a salmon mango roll + edamame + avocado salad. My favorite rolls to order on their own (not part of the lunch special) include the Spicy Caterpillar Maki ($8.95) - eel, cucumber, avocado + spicy mayo topped with avocado, eel sauce + tobiko, and the Black Pearl Maki ($8.95) spicy salmon, tempura flakes, scallions, avocado + black tobiko.

Super fresh sushi, creative maki rolls and perfect little lunch specials all at a great value, Avana is the best!

  1. YUM! We loveeee sushi and this looks great, and cheap!, which is awesome since some places are so expensive. Have you been to New Ginza in Watertown? It's delicious!

    1. Yes - love New Ginza. That and Super Fusion are our go to around here

  2. What a bargain! I still need to check out PDX's Chinatown - I hope it lives up to Boston's!

  3. Totally adding this to my list-- making it a goal to hit every sushi restaurant in the city :) And now I'm craving salmon+mango like woah!

  4. I've heard great things about Avana, too! Must try soon.

  5. Best little take out or in work week lunch.
