61. Spicy Scallop Roll at Toni's Sushi Bar

It's not on the menu, so you'll have to ask for the "spicy scallop roll" ($9) at Toni's Sushi Bar, which they will happily make in either 8-piece or hand roll format. Small chunks of raw scallop get mixed with masago and just a touch of mayo, enough to add moisture but not leave behind a creamy aftertaste. The spicy sauce is old school spicy, it's not reinterpreted as a fancy fusion maki with a sriracha sauce or glazed with sweet chili something...it's simple sushi; there are no micro-greens on top, no dehydrated flakes of anything. It is what it advertises -- a spicy scallop roll.


Toni's been open since 1987, and they claim to be the first Japanese restaurant on South Beach (that's twenty-five years in Miami time, quite the accomplishment). It's not the kind of destination that thrill seekers and seasonal tourists patronize, this is that nondescript place you always stroll by, but they've been making great sushi for years. It's time to stop in and grab a seat at the bar.
