Shiro provides high quality sushi that one might only expect to find in the city… if you’re willing to drive an hour outside the city.

Honestly, it’s not like I stumbled across this little gem, or heard about it through word of mouth. I happened to be running an errand an hour west of Boston after work. He decided to Yelp restaurants around and came across Shiro. As you can see from the picture above, I drove by it at least a half dozen times as the restaurant is literally situated inside what looks to be a normal house from the outside. The inside has tables and a little sushi bar, but don’t let the looks deceive you… I had the best sushi in my life here.
The prices on all of the sushi were all about the same if not slightly cheaper than what you would pay in the city. But if price only slightly pushes you towards trying the sushi at Shiro, the taste of the sushi will easily get you on the turnpike and heading out west. I mean, the sushi taste so good, I would have gladly paid double Boston prices for my meal. You get the most amazing blue fin toro for a fraction of what it would cost in Boston. I will say that there is a large emphasis on highlighting the fish in each plate. You’d think that this was common sense with any sushi joint, but I personally feel some places that don’t have amazing tasting fresh fish and the knife skills have to hide their sushi in endless amounts of glazes and sauces. I thoroughly enjoyed the taste of the fish in all my plates. Here are some of the rolls I tried:
