It’s long been a sad but true fact – or at least, a statement taken as fact by many of Philadelphia’s top foodies – that the best sushi in all of Philly is actually found in South Jersey. The battle for top sushi destination generally is fought between Matt Ito’s Fuji in Haddonfield and Shigeru Fukuyoshi’s Sagami in Collingswood. I’d yet to get the chance to try either until this past weekend, when I finally went to Sagami to celebrate a friend’s birthday. And I’m so glad that I did! Sagami is every bit as wonderful as I’d been lead to believe it is. So often, heavily hyped-up restaurants end up disappointing me, but there was hardly a single off note in our entire dinner experience.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
