Best Japanese Restaurant

Edo Sushi

53 E. Padonia Road, Timonium, (410) 667-9200

Posted 9/13/2000

This winning little restaurant has more than great sushi. It's worth searching beyond the à la carte maki/nigri menu for Edo's excellent traditional Japanese fare, such as agemono with tonkatsu (udon-noodle soup with tempura pork loin), and koni kara (fried soft crabs with a yummy dipping sauce). All the classics are here--shumai dumplings, teriyaki, edamame--and they're very good, especially the wasabi-stuffed pork shumai. But why not try something new? Edo also offers gastronomic adventures in the form of jellyfish salad and kaba yaki, or broiled eel. Combine good, inexpensive food with tasteful décor, discreetly attentive kimono-clad waitresses, and those little hot towels (before and after dinner), and you've got a Japanese dining experience that makes Baltimore feel just a little like Kyoto.
