Ta Ca, Sushi and Japanese Fusion
Good ole Southern cooking is defined by fat and frying, so the notion of sushi—lean, uncooked, and austere—seems counterintuitive. But it is possible to find good sushi in Savannah, amidst all that good Southern cooking.
Take for instance Ta Ca, a sushi and Japanese fusion restaurant in the historic district. Ta Ca serves both sushi and Japanese grill—hibachi—favorites. The atmosphere is unlike most hibachi or sushi restaurants; they offer both indoor and outdoor dining, and the indoor space is small and intimate. It’s more like eating at your neighborhood diner than at some posh sushi bistro.
I had the dragon roll, a sushi staple made with eel and avocado, served at Ta Ca with a playful flourish (see photo). The roll was tight, the sushi tasty. And in the spirit of Southern dining, I also had some vegetable tempura—tempura means “fried,” for those of you who don’t speak sushi. It was good, too.
Ta Ca offers lunch and dinner specials. The restaurant is located on Oglethorpe in the new Oglethorpe shopping plaza. For more information, you can visit their website at tacasushi.com.
