Mitch’s Fish Market

Sushi, sashimi, and fish fresh…does it have to be expensive?  Hawaii is one of the best places for fresh fish and sushi. 

Good sushi can be expensive, but I don’t think it has to be be.  I grew up eating sushi and missed it when I lived in the Midwest but even living in the Kansas and Missouri, hubby and I ate sushi.  I’m not into uni or lobster and the fancy stuff. 

I read Trip Advisor and found that there was a sushi restaurant near my office. Hubby and I were going to eat out on Friday night so I suggested Mitch’s Fish Market.  Mitch’s Fish Market is located at 524 Ohohia Street.  However, I wanted to check out the place first so I went there after work.  I had read that parking could be a problem but I found street parking.

Mitch’s Fish Market is small and a hole in the wall.  When I arrived at 4:15 p.m. no one was in the restaurant except the waitress. 

I asked to see the menu.  I don’t know what I expected but the prices seemed high to me. For example, an order of eel (2 pieces) was $6.  Hubby said that the anago was good but it wasn’t worth the price.  After I placed my order the waitress had to go outside to find the chef.

If you decide to try Mitch’s Fish Market, be sure you bring lots of cash or your VISA or MC because you’ll need it.  Personally, I prefer the sushi at California Beach Rock ‘n Sushi.  The nigiri and the handroll sushi is $1.50 a piece at the bar during happy hour.
