I do – REALLY! The v. best in town!
Although I realize that many people will disagree with me about this one, my favorite place for take-out is Genki Noodles + Sushi on Roswell Road in Buckhead. Slick + I really think it’s the best thing since sliced tuna.
We’ve heard y’all complain about Genki from time to time, but we love it – especially for take-out. We’ve never had a problem there and find their sushi to always be plentiful and fresh – and certainly not as boring as getting it pre-packaged from Whole Foods down the block.
Our favorite rolls for take-out @ Genki are:
1- Dragon Roll: Cucumber and crab topped with salmon, avocado +tobiko
2- Florida Roll: Avocado and cucumber roll topped with tuna +yellowtail
3- Falcon Roll: Soft shell crab and cucumber roll topped with fresh water eel, red +black tobiko
We’ve had Genki delivered to us – I believe they do this w/in a small radius of the restaurant – but we still prefer to run over there and pick-up our order. I am definitely cool with pizza or Chinese food delivery, but in my mind sushi needs to not sit in a hot car for too long before you eat it… It’s much faster to call in an order and swing by to scoop it up on the way over to Slick’s pad.
If you are a hater, and we know there are more than a few of you, I encourage y’all to give Genki another chance. If you haven’t actually eaten at the restaurant in a while, Genki has undergone some serious renovations over the past two years, and now it looks great inside. The outside patio is still hard to beat in Buckhead, too. Take my word for it.
ALSO, they recently opened a new location in Sandy Springs @ the Prado. Just a little FYI…
