Craving good sushi that isn’t too expensive in Paris? Look no further! Rice & Fish is your answer. My sister and I were looking to celebrate one of her last nights in town, and our taste buds were craving sushi made right. We found a few places, but the prices were a bit expensive for what we were looking to spend (14euros for 6 pieces of maki). So we ended up stumbling upon reviews of Rice & Fish- a Japanese-American hybrid sushi bar created by a Californian trained by a Japanese chef.
We got there around 8:30pm and the place was already pretty packed, so that comforted us in knowing that the food was most likely good. We also realized that less than 50 meters from each other lies two Rice and Fish restaurants on the same street. One has a bit more seating and serves mainly hot dishes such as soups or BBQ bowls, and the other serves cold dishes. The décor is eclectic with paper lanterns hanging from the ceiling, Japenese comic posters on the walls, and fashion magazine postings at the sushi bar, coupled with a nice playlist of house and soul music.
Maki rolls range from about 5.50-9 euros, and there is a wide variety of choices ranging from classic rolls like the California roll, as well as some unique twists such as rolls with scallops or fried calamari. Everything tasted really fresh, and the presentation of the different rolls was superb. Try the Krunchy, Bjork, TNT (spicy tuna roll), Chenille ( caterpillar roll), we tried all of these, and were very happy we did. They also have a lunch menu for 10 euros which includes an entrée and your choice of 2 maki rolls ( 12 pieces total), and there is also a 15 euro menu that includes a drink and dessert.
Rice & Fish is a #lavielocale approved place to go for good quality sushi that won’t break your pockets.
