Serving contemporary Japanese cuisine, Samurai Blue has garnered a reputation for having some of the best sushi in Portland. The dining area at Samurai Blue is subtle and clean. It’s a comfortable space that’s as suitable for casual lunches as it is for date night. As any good sushi restaurant should, they impressed me with the extreme freshness of the fish, which was nicely highlighted in their delightful ceviche. But I think my favorite item on the menu is one of their signature makimono rolls called Chance of Rain, featuring salmon, cream cheese, avocado, sundried tomato, and basil. It’s flash fried and served with the most amazing balsamic teriyaki sauce. And on rainy days, it’s half price! 4.5 Stars on Yelp. $$
