Many people enjoy sushi. Some people may have a specific place they prefer to go. Mikuni, Blue Nami, Taro’s, making a trip all the way to Roseville and Folsom, but not everyone knows about the hidden gem right here in the heart of Carmichael.
Enter Shogun Sushi. Shogun is located at 7330 Fair Oaks Blvd just a few minutes from campus. It is a small location but has room for larger parties up to 10, comfortably.
Granite countertops give the restaurant a clean look, complimenting the bathrooms which are also very clean.
Delicious roll varieties start at just $7 and are displayed beautifully, appealing to your eyes as well as your stomach.
One of the popular rolls here is the T&A that combines just the right amount of crunch with the deep fried shrimp to compliment the soft textures of the avocado, crab and albacore tuna.
What makes all of these rolls so good is the sushi chef making them, Jimmy Kil, who on Dec. 16th 2013 took over ownership of Shogun. Kil has been a sushi chef for 15 years now and it shows. “If you don’t put your heart and soul into making your food, it’s not the same”.
Kil creates his own sauces to accompany some of his original roll varieties and fresh sashimi platters, which gives his food a signature taste that will have you salivating and leaving your pallet wanting more.
“Good food, Good service, that’s all you need”, is Kil’s motto, and he has developed quite a loyal following of regulars from it, whether it be from his past sushi restaurants or new customers.
Kil and his wife Paige work together. They make an excellent team satisfying people’s hunger, as well as create a welcoming, comfortable environment.
“When people bring their family members then their friends, it means the world to me”, said Kil.
Shogun will be releasing a new menu in the next month. Be sure to come in and try it before and after for lunch or dinner Monday through Saturday. 11-3 p.m. and 5-9 p.m.
