If the window display at Roy’s didn’t have a pink neon heart with the word “sushi” inside, it would look like just another old-school, neighborhood fishmonger. Follow the neon heart, pass the refrigerator of fish heads, salmon fillets, and crabs, and you’ll find yourself in Roy’s sushi bar corner. Since you’re purchasing sushi inside of a very small fish market, it means your seating options are limited to a small bench with no table. But it also means that the quality of the rolls, nigiri, and sashimi combos is noticeably impressive - especially considering the majority of the combo platters cost under $15.
