You know that fun-looking bar you've seen on your way to Roberta's? That's Momo Sushi Shack. Momo Sushi Shack feels like a little hut, and it definitely doesn't feel like your standard non-descript neighborhood sushi spot. Like its sister spot Bozu in Williamsburg, Momo's signature item is its "bombs," which are basically just round pieces of nigiri sushi. There are only long communal tables which gives the place a fun vibe. It makes for a good early in the game date spot in Bushwick.

La Isla Cuchifritos
We love La Isla Cuchifritos for the fact that a) it’s cheap and delicious, and b) it sort of feels like you’re grubbing in tropical Puerto Rico rather than not-so-tropical Brooklyn.

BK Jani is a counter-service place in Williamsburg serving meat-heavy Pakistani street food that you’ll think about when you’re in bed late at night.
For all of the things that Williamsburg does have when it comes to restaurants, one thing it doesn’t seem to have is excellent sushi. Unfortunately, Bozu only proves that point.
If you want some good sushi that doesn’t cost as much as a new set of 500-thread-count sheets, go to U-Gu in Clinton Hill.
