Minato Sushi: Mt. Vernon, Baltimore, MD, USA
I actually frequented Minato quite a few times this past year, almost 90% during their Happy Hour. While not the most authentic of Japanese cuisine, their special maki rolls are all $7.50 each with about six to eight pieces per roll. My friends and I usually will try to hit the $11.00 and up rolls to really make it worth it. Here are a few of the rolls that we have tried this past year:
- Doug roll
- June roll
- April roll
- Laura roll
- Volcano roll
- Maine roll
- Maryland roll
- Raven roll
I think with each time, Laura roll was always a winner and so was the Raven because it had soft-shell crab in it. Truth be told, you really have to be a fan of fusion rolls to enjoy happy hour here. The Maryland roll was new and came out just this spring. Of course, its kicker was the fact that it had not only blue crab in it but Old Bay seasoning. It’s just not Maryland or the Chesapeake rather, without that Old Bay!It’s really too hard to rank these rolls because they are all so different yet all the same because they’re fusion. So I leave you with a few pictures.
If you’re ever up for some decent sushi fusion rolls that’s well worth the price, I definitely recommend Minato. You can find them in the Mt. Vernon district of Baltimore on Charles Street, just about a two block walk from Penn Station (train). I believe they extended happy hour from 3-7p instead of 5-7p but you may want to call in case they change it.

It’s going to be pretty blog-heavy now that I am officially done with my MPH. There is an onslaught of Baltimore posts that I need to do in addition to one or two DC posts to catch up on as well. Thank you for being so patient and continuing to follow this blog!
