Sushi is every foodie’s number one weakness, and we know well that our most loyal friends are the ones that meet us for weekly sushi dates. Not only is it both tempting and tasty, but it is also the trendy star course of social media. People love to try out new places to Instagram and Snapchat that tantalizing, zoomed-in frame of their sushi rolls. However, most Japanese cuisine can be pretty pricey… unless you go during Happy Hour! Who knew Happy Hour could make you any happier? Here’s our list of the best sushi Happy Hours in D.C to dine at without emptying your wallet:
1. Tono Sushi
Whether you’re looking to starving during lunch, dinner, or even Happy Hour, Tono Sushi is the drool-worthy spot to get your NOMs in. During Happy Hour, they offer a deal that is SO affordable with only $3 rolls and $5 house wine and beer. Wine and sushi are a match made in heaven; they need one another, and we need them. Also for when you’re feeling lazy on the couch binging on Netflix, but can’t stop daydreaming about spicy shrimp and avocado, Tono Sushi is here to be your Superman, because they deliver. My hero!
2. Sushi Taro
Make a reservation at Sushi Taro and your Instagram followers will be fangirling your page because the chefs at Sushi Taro design the prettiest sushi plate presentations. So pretty, they are almost too good to eat… key word ALMOST (nothing could actually stop us from stuffing our faces). Come around Happy Hour for half price rolls and half price drinks from Monday to Thursday between 5:30-7pm at the bar. Hello wine, we meet again.
3. Mai Thai Georgetown
At Mai Thai on 3251 Prospect, the views of the Potomac are nearly as beautiful as the view of a full, fresh sushi platter. The Happy Hour special here is awesome and affordable as the rolls are only $3 and boozies are between $2-$4. They offer Japanese Cuisine and Thai food to fit your mood, the menu options are vast. Come between 3:30-6pm to enjoy the restaurant’s promotions without breaking your bank account!
