"One of the most Japanese feeling locations on the list…12 Best Sushi Spots in Portland - by Drew Tyson Thrillist 4/20/15

"There's no mayo, no cream cheese, and nothing deep-fried on chef Yuki Yamada's menu at Daruma, and that's just the way it should be… Wait times can be long, but it's worth it to watch Yamada run a big-ass knife through a fresh salmon—there's no better way to work up an appetite for nigiri."
