Sushi in Beirut

Beirut first fell for sushi in the naughties; today myriad sushi joints are dotted throughout the city. Tsunami is the best you can get without putting on high heels and spreading your meal over two credit cards. Fresh sashimi, solid sushi roll classics and some fun Achrafiyeh people-watching make for a nice change when you can’t look at hummus anymore.
