I love eating a tasty box! Shoga sushi NYC.


While I was recently walking around my hood on the Upper East Side during a cold blustery day this hot box came out of nowhere and lured me in to take a few bites of her warm delights! She heated me up for sure, and her box was quite tasty, which already made me look forward to our next encounter! What a seductress she was!

Shoga is a relatively newer sushi restaurant that opened up a few blocks from where I live, and she is quite sexy. Upscale sushi bar decor, glowing colorful lighting, waterfall cascading down the front window, clean bathroom, and very friendly service. Terrific ambiance, reasonable prices, a diverse menu, lunch specials, along with a full bar and drink specials too! She is hard to resist and from first bite she had me hooked.

l (1)Definitely a nice addition to the area, and worthy of being such a seductive pleasure. The lunch deals run 11:30 am – 4:00 pm every day and served with miso soup & salad. For a little less than $10 I enjoyed a large Bento Box of salmon teriyaki w/brown rice, california roll, and fried shumai. “Now that is a tasty box” I thought as I munched down on it. Everything was very fresh. Large bowl of soup. Crispy salad. The salmon was tender and on a bed of veggies with just the right amount of teriyaki glaze. The California roll was also made very fresh, and from viewing a few of the sushi plates that walked by to other patrons with smiles on their faces eating them I could tell this place is a contender for sure. This box left me totally satisfied and had me wanting for more.

Damn – they even have a $1 oyster special here. This hot box gets her aphrodisiac on!

There is nothing like a warm tasty box on a cold day to munch down on. Shoga is a newcomer to the UES/Yorkville area that will give the existing sushi spots a run for their money. Glad to know I can find her lurking around a few blocks from home now! She sure knows how to show off her tasty box!

  1. That is a great lunch deal and so cheap too. It looks very healthy and tasty.

    Lunch until 4pm? You guys in NYC really know how to live, I love a long lunch 🙂

  2. The food looks great. [She determinedly ignores the painful pun, the godawful repeated innuendo, the… nope. Not going there…]

    Where was I? Oh, yeah. Sounds like good food.

  3. The food looks delicious (and I’m a salmon lover so that helps) but I also love your description of the ambiance. Atmosphere doesn’t always matter, but sometimes you just want a soothing spot to decompress and eat. This place sounds perfect.

    1. Hey Reesa!

      Thanks for the kind comment! I just write about places I hav ebeen to that I like. Local spots and others around town. If it helps anyone I am pleased. I also write about my humorous observations and life here. A mish mash of stuff! Thanks for following!

    1. Hey Peggy!

      Yes, the bento box offers up a nice mix of things all on one plate. Many sushi spots in NYC offer up lunch deals like this and so worth it!

    1. Hey Gary!

      Glad you enjoyed. Sushi is not for everyone I guess. My gal hates it as she is not a fish fan to beging with.

      As for me I enjoy eating a tasty box!

  4. Shoga sounds amazing. You are obviously smitten by her seductive, sexy and satisfying ways. She sure knows how to use it. Though I am traditional, even I am lured by her warm tasty freshness. 🙂

    1. Hey Brickhouse!

      It’s one of those local spots in my hood. She lures us in and seduces us with her sexy cheap dishes. Only for lunch though as she is more expensive at night. What a nasty tease!

  5. I keep forgetting I shouldn’t read your blog right before lunch. Another assortment of tasty photographs. Looks scrumptious. I’m absolutely starving.

    Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. for so long. I took a long blogging break to work on writing projects and a fight with my neighbors against Town Hall and AT&T.

    1. Hey Lauren!

      Good to hear from you. Hope all is well. I am hitting lunch now as my own blog made me hungry!

      Hey, sometimes blogging takes a step back for real life stuff.

  6. Sushi for $10.00. Oh my! I love sushi and oysters for just $1.00.!! You have got to be joking. There should be a queue right outside the restaurant at such amazing prices. Yum. Get me a flight!

    1. Hey Christy!

      I love sushi! It’s a good thing we have so many sushi spots here in NYC. Good deals for lunch at pretty much all of them. Go for it.

    1. Hey Hazy!

      Sounds funny but I can see someone openong a yoga and sushi joint one day. Kind of fits together as long as it’s not the “hot yoga” type.Yuck!
