Ginza Sushi Bar in Wauwatosa

As the latest addition to the still rather vacant One Mayfair Place on the corner of Mayfair and Center in Wauwatosa, the Ginza Sushi Bar is in a great area and has no immediate competitors when it comes to Sushi. When it opened about a week ago, my wife and I decided to oorder a few rolls for takeout. Although I don’t recall exactly which items off the menu we had ordered, all of the rolls were fresh and delicious. Even having only been open for a day, they seem to have already mastered takeout and had our food ready fast and already packed neatly in to a brown bag when I walked in the door. Although the size of the rolls aren’t as large as what I am spoiled with at Wasabi, they are still quite good and cause a little less damage to the wallet.

Earlier today we decided to make our second trip there, but this time for a nice sit-down lunch. Both of us ordered the $13 lunch bento. The price seemed a bit steep, but they really do a fantastic job of filling you up. We were promptly brought out a fresh salad and within a minute or two of clearing our salad plates we were brought the rest of the meal. Honestly, it was more than I expected. Both of us got the teryaki chicken bento, which had a large amount of the chicken, topped with thinly shredded and fried sweet potato, a California roll (which my wife substituted for a sweet potato roll – a very good choice), a steamed veggie whose name I cannot recall, the option of either a spring roll or some little fried stuffed rice ball, and a bowl of white rice. By the time I’d cleared my plate I was thoroughly stuffed and extremely satisfied.

Although I can’t (yet?) speak for the menu in it’s entirety, I am willing to pronounce Ginza a worthwhile destination if you are in the Mayfair area and looking for a good meal. It certainly isn’t the best sushi in the metro-Milwaukee area, but the food is good, the service is fast and friendly, and it is in a very convenient location across from Mayfair Mall. I will definitely be eating there again.
