Yam Yam the Key at Big Eyes

Tim McGinnis finds that if you like the yam yam sauce at Big Eyes Sushi you’ll like the BYO sushi spot at 7th and Bainbridge.

Philly finds itself awash in high-end sushi choices—Morimoto, Zama and Raw—and Big Eyes offers some superb counter-programming. It could find its position in the market by continuing to offer these low-cost (not low-end) sushi that is in no way aimed at sushi traditionalists, but the playful and open-minded diner instead. While the big boys are worrying about the details and hand-wringing over pricing, Big Eyes is just trying to have a little fun. And succeeding.
