Sushi in Poughkeepsie

Personally, I'm a sushi lover and anytime I get a chance to go out for it there's only one place I go nowadays! I've tried various places near my house in Poughkeepsie before but always seem to find myself back at Akari Sushi & Japanese Food.

Honestly, I've tried a ton of places but there's something different about the sushi at Akari, located at 35 Main Street, Poughkeepsie near the Poughkeepsie train station, it's always better in my opinion. They offer a ton of sushi options and a bunch more.

My go-to order is a Spider-Man Roll, followed by a Snow Mountain Roll, and then a Godzilla Roll OMG so good!
