Among our many obsessions, there’s one that stands out like a soy sauce stain on a white shirt: sushi. We’re willing to drain our bank accounts and flirt with mercury poisoning to get our fix.

If I had to pick just one food to eat for the rest of my days, it’d be a toss-up between good bread slathered in Kerrygold – or sushi. Nothing else leaves you feeling as weightless as a feather after a meal. Compare it to devouring a hefty carvery – after that (admittedly delicious) carb overload, I need a pillow, my mouth guard, and maybe some half-ass foreplay you gotta promise won’t go anywhere because I’m bolloxed tired. A proper dinner like that makes gravity feel real. No other time do you relate so much to Issac Newton as when you’ve had a good feed. But sushi? It’s like dining on pure helium. It’s like shedding a heavy cloak and floating away into the night. Sure, I feel satisfied, but I also feel like I could moonwalk all the way to the car, two inches above the pavement.

Whether you’re sipping sake, cocktails, wine, or anything else, sushi offers a taste experience that’s as unique as it is delicious. The cold, firm fish mingling with rice, sauce, and assorted fixings creates a vibe that slaps every time.

Here are hands-down the top five best sushi places in our fair city right the hell now.
