We were on the Big Island for 8 days & visited Hawi on next to late day. Several locals told us to try Sushi Rock and not the other spots. We were greeted by Peter Pomeranze (17 years on the island) & we immediately felt at home. He showed us the menu and provided the incredible luncheon specials. You think the restaurant caters to the lovers of fish! We were wrong.
My wife had a Bistro Roll of Sushi and the portions were perfect and the two cold beers were a home run! Our two daughters ordered a safe Caesar salad topped with teriyaki chicken. The oldest daughter is not a chicken fan and she turned around for the bar and told us “this is the best chicken I have ever had!” We live in Atlanta and we have a lot of “5” steak houses to chose from every day. Peter explained that his beef tenderloin was grass fed. My mixed green salad topped with this beef was a grand slam.
We finished the meal with two local deserts – Raspberry Lilikoi Summer Cake and MacNut Pie. Awesome!
If you are looking for a great meal, a cordial atmosphere and exceptional prices for the Big Island – Sushi Rocks is worth the drive.
