Not much has changed at Shi Ki over the years. This family-run sushi restaurant continues to ply those in the know with reasonably priced, good quality sushi options. It’s the kind of place you can drop by for dinner on a Friday night without having to get dressed up or fight tourists for a spot at the sushi bar. It’s the ultimate neighborhood gem, tucked away beside the Rite Aid on East Bay Street. The sushi is excellent (the spicy tuna roll is the best in town), and their sticky rice is perfectly flavored. We also love the fat selection of noodles — plump udon that comes surrounded by tempura-fried seafood, vegetables, and some delicious dashi broth creations. And the fried banana and ice cream is a perfect capper to an easygoing meal. —Stephanie Barna
