If you often consult this blog it is because you love Japanese cuisine of course and, among the specialties that you certainly most prefer, sushi stands out.

In recent years, Milan has been the protagonist of a real boom in sushi: from all you can eat chains to those offered à la carte, there is truly spoiled for choice. As you well know, I am a huge fan of sushi and already in another article I had listed the best Japanese restaurants in Milan (according to me), among which you can find the best sushi in the city.

Sure, high-quality sushi translates into sizeable budgets. But there are places with cheap formulas: here are the best accessible sushi restaurants in Milan!
