Sushiland in Hayward

Sushiland is one of my favorite places to go to in the East Bay. It’s cheap and the food is good. Weird right? Who would have thought there was good sushi in Hayward?

This is the perfect restaurant for a Friday date night. It’s a small, little shack on Mission, definitely something you would pass by if you weren’t looking for it. When you walk in, there are 8 tables and 6 bar spots. When it’s prime dinner time, expect there to be a line. Sushi rolls range from $6-10, bento boxes are less than $10, and the udon is so flavorful for a colder day and less than $10 too.


I almost don’t want to tell people about this place so that it doesn’t get so packed! It’s such a gem in the middle of Hayward. If you’re ever visiting me, this is probably where we’ll eat.

Salmon KamaThis is my favorite dish – Salmon Kama for $5. It’s is the collar of a Salmon, flame-grilled, and the meat is so succulent! If you’re ever at a Sushi restaurant and they have salmon or hamachi kama on the menu, do yourself a favor and order it.

We come here at least once every two weeks. In the past month, we’ve gone every week. You could say we’re obsessed with this place.
