    Sushi

    Still pretty new to central Iowa. Can anyone offer up their opinion on the best places for sushi in Des Moines or West Des Moines?

    Miyabi 9 is the best in town by a large margin.

    Re: Sushi

    IIRC, Miyabi 9 has a chef that's allowed to cut pufferfish and is one of only a handful in the country with that skill.

    Re: Sushi

    I like Miyabi 9 a lot too.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Sushi

    Thanks much for all the suggestions. Does Miyabi have anything besides sashimi and rolls? One person who'll be with us isn't into sushi or rolls.

    Thanks again.

    I'll never do uni again. Had it in Denver a few years ago and still don't think my stomach has fully forgiven me. Was awful. After I tried it I noticed its color was gray instead of yellow, which would have been good to know before the first bite. Still, can't do it again. Felt like I was green for two days after.

    Re: Sushi

    1. Miyabi 9
    2. Samarai
    3. Tokyo (Ankeny)

    Have not been to Taki but have heard great things.

    Appare is pretty decent as well. Waterfront I've had good and not so good, but it has a pretty stellar reputation (seems like WDM location trumps Ankeny quality-wise). Mandarin and Junko are the two worst I've had in town.
