Marie’s Bistro on 30A in Blue Mountain Beach is on a roll! Their handmade sushi is some of the best this area has to offer. It is tasty, inspired, and always creative. Couple those qualities with amazing half-off offers every day from 4-7 pm during Happy Hour, and you’ve got Dishes of 30A’s profile of the week.
Lucky for me, three of my favorite sushi rolls are also discounted at Happy Hour. Marie’s version of an Alaskan Roll is made with generous amounts of yummy smoked salmon, avocado, and tempura crunchies. Another stellar roll they offer during Happy Hour is The Cowboy. This is the perfect “sushi” for a beginner as it is made with tender steak, avocado and spicy mayo. Or try the Boston Roll filled with shrimp, avocado, and crunchy cool cucumber. All three are excellent.
But you also must order the Christmas Roll. Bright red-hued fresh tuna and avocado is paired with crunchy and delicately tempura fried shrimp. The fresh seafood, perfectly prepared rice, and creamy avocado make for a perfect bite. Hint: if you try this one, be prepared to share – everyone will be eyeing it!
Marie’s Bistro on 30A is also mindful to complement your sushi experience with all the traditional sharable sides such as vegetable egg rolls, edamame, and well-seasoned seaweed and squid salads. Their gulf-fresh sashimi and nigiri options are also wonderful additions.
But here’s the best secret going: orders are available for pick up and conveniently through their drive-thru as well! Even if you have a busy schedule and can’t make time to dine in, you can pick up some amazing treats to enjoy at home. With skillful sushi making prowess and accessible ways to enjoy it, Marie’s Bistro on 30A is the perfect choice when craving a variety of Japanese favorites.
