Toyota Prius Of Sushi

Whether to eat in or take out tiny Vic Sushi Bar on Sansom Street impresses.

To capitalize on the takeout trade, it offers party platters ranging from a 39-piece assortment ($30) to a 122-piece smorgasbord ($100). At those rates, it would be fair to expect mediocrity. Yet, a roster of 15 specialty rolls features nouveau-style creations like a mouthwatering eel and avocado maki wrapped in thin slices of champagne mango. Chef Qiyang Shi also brings out boutique ingredients like eye-catching nori wrappers made from white seaweed The repertoire may be rooted in standards like tuna and California rolls, but that’s not where it ends.
