Don Sushi offers seasonal seafood, fresh daily off the fishing boats. Besides sushi, there 30-plus "donburi" (meaning "bowl") entrees, featuring rice covered with different ingredients. Other, delicious-looking sashimi and scallops selections are chilled in a glass showcase and there are all-you-can-eat Japanese side dishes, soup, desserts, ice cream, and Japanese tea. The mostly-wooden interior here also exudes a traditional Japanese vibe. --By Uvia Chang , translated by Angel Pu, photos by Pedro Lucas Teixeira Pinho
