Gorgeous sushi dinner with two girl friends from Orange County.
This tiny sushi place with Bistro atmosphere has several different omakase, sushi only, sashimi only and three mixed. We ordered “Gold” $180, which is second most expensive.
Accompanied by Asahi beer. Most unique presentation ever. Three appetizers are on the little plant pots filled with sesame seeds and sealed with shiso leaves. So cute and tasty.
I am not big fan of scallop, but this one is so fresh and delicious. Shrimp was still alive. Of course, my favorite is abalone.
Again, I’ve never seen this kind of presentation. It’s just “wow.”
Everything tastes so wonderful and sake is best to go with.
Namerou is so authentic and difficult to have a good one. Aji is one of my favorite fish. So happy.
Best thing here is freshly graded real wasabi. For scallop or abalone, the chef serves sweet part of wasabi. As course goes richer, wasabi goes spicier. So we can taste best fish of it.
Delicacy that is barely seen in the market. Interesting but ok to taste.
I love the tuna sampler.
Salmon sampler is so delicious too.
Uni truffle is one of my favorite of the night.
After this course, Chef Kiyokawa asked us if we still had room in stomach or would like dessert next. Our answer was “a little more savory dish.”
Abalone liver gives rich taste to it.
I was so happy to have a full taste of shell fish, which I love most among all kinds of food.
Very rich and perfect to close the meal.
We love the presentation. Servers open the bento box in front of us, that was an exciting moment.
Taste wise, it was just ok beside green tea ice cream which is more like snow.
Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience. Total bill ended up with close to $300 per person, but I would like to go back for a special occasion.
