Shige Sushi Express. I probably need to get out and explore more local Meridian sushi spots but honestly this one is so good and yet to disappoint me that I have stuck with it. My sister just came in to town from Japan where she has been serving in the Navy for the last 3 years. When she wanted sushi I knew I had to show her a good spot since she just came from the land of sushi. Even she was impressed with the care, detail and freshness that Shige provides. They have had a lot of practice as they have been serving the Treasure Valley authentic Japanese food for nearly 30 years.
