My daddy always told me to avoid, at all costs, Mexican food north of Oklahoma. He’s a wise Texas man – just like my favorite Texan, Kinky Friedman: http://bit.ly/3MVGhq.

In a similar vein, I also strive to avoid sushi (my #2 favorite food to pizza) when I am away from (1) big cities or (2) cities close to water. But, as previously blogged, I found myself in Smyrna over the weekend and, well, it was dinnertime. After a long day of baking, Dana and I opted for lighter fare for dinner and started debating sushi restaurants. Then, a light bulb went off – I was in the general vicinity of Tomo!
Here’s the Q+DD on Tomo and why you should seriously consider OTP sushi:
Tomo is the creation of Chef Naito, who comes to us from Nobu in Las Vegas. It’s located on Cobb Parkway in a strip right outside of the adorable Vinings Jubilee. It’s an intimate restaurant and less foo-foo than some of the Midtown sushi restaurants that may focus more on atmosphere than sushi quality.
yum yum yum!
Although it’s a schlep for those of us ITP, the sushi was incredibly fresh – even on a Sunday! (Note: Many sushi restaurants only get fish deliveries on Tuesdays and Thursdays, which are the best days of the week to get your fish fix.) Dana and I split a few rolls, but our favorite was their House Special Roll (with tuna, yellowtail, salmon, whitefish, smelt egg, eel and avocado). De-lish! Best of all, their amazing fish is priced for the suburbs (which helps make the amount of gas you use to get out there seem much more reasonable). After being so anti-suburban regarding my sushi consumption, I left the restaurant not just full but looking forward to my next visit!
