I remember when I first started eating sushi. I quickly ascended into a culinary obsession for the Japanese fast food. Fortunately, living in the flourishing suburbs of Philadelphia allowed me to indulge whenever I wanted to as there was an amazing tiny Japanese restaurant close to my home in Doylestown, Pennsylvania called “Ooka”. The restaurant was so small it couldn’t have sat more than 15 people, while the rest of the space housed a huge fish tank with some beautiful gold fish and a couple of exotic koi . Truly a hidden gem.
That was Ooka Sushi at least ten years ago. A couple years ago, it went through a major overhaul and has doubled in size. In addition to the extra space it’s received an incredible contemporary look, complete with glowing bar and multiple hibachi tables. Ooka brings you a sense of the elite interior decor of a high end Miami nightclub in sleepytown suburbia, a refreshing change of pace. In addition to the ambience, Ooka offers a diversified menu of sushi rolls to choose from as well as the typical faves. One of my absolute adorations is the “New York Roll”, fresh Salmon, with Fuji Apple. To die for. Ooka, also has a nice collection of Sake’s to compliment any taste.
Ooka is great for impressing a date or just a casual business meeting, but call ahead to make sure it isn’t crazy busy. Ooka, has built up quite a reputation over the last few years, and has couple locations to boast their status. In 2010, Philadelphia Magazine named Ooka “Best of Philly 2010” for “Best Sushi”. Not to pat my own back, but I was saying that 8 years ago…. If you’re a foodie and like to try new places, Ooka Doylestown is perfect. Located in a bustling little town with lots to do, give it a try, you won’t be sorry.
