Oyster Shooter ($6.00). I didn’t try this and so I can’t comment on it. But from what I’ve heard, it gives you the extra oomph you might need at night. =)
Chef Choice Sashimi ($28.00). More than thirty pieces of daily fresh fish. I don’t usually eat sashimi but this was pretty good. My favorite was the yellowtail and tuna pieces.
Salmon Skin Handrolls ($5.00). These were scrumptious. Salmon skin is always a good choice.
Hamachi Kama ($?) Grilled Yellowtail Cheekbone. This is the first time I’ve had this and it is fantastic! Its soft enough that you can pick at it with your chopsticks and break it into pieces. The best part of it is near the bone where the fatty pieces of meat are. Yummy!
Gami Special Roll ($15.00). In-Shrimp Tempura, Crab, Avocado, Out-Japanese Fresh Water Eel Sauce, Parmesan Cheese. I always like to order entrees that bear the house name. And even though it had parmesan cheese on it, I thought it was worth the try. To my surprise it tasted fine. Its very similar to the Dragon roll but has a very subtle difference to it. The other guests didn’t like it as much as the Dragon roll though. They said the parmesan cheese was too strange for them. So I guess its just a matter of personal taste.
Naruto Roll ($14.00). Tuna, Salmon, Yellowtail, Avocado, Gobo, Green Onion, Yuzu, and Ponzu Sauce. This non-rice roll (on the house after all the food/drinks we ordered) was strange and unique. It was not bad at all but it had a completely different kind of texture and taste to it. In general it had a very fresh taste to it. The outside was solid and firm but the insides were very soft and moist.
Fire Roll ($15.00). In-Jalepeno spicy tuna, Avocado, Gobo, Cilantro. Out-Hawaiian Fresh Tuna Creamy Fire Sauce. The sauce on the top was so overwhelmingly hot that it was difficult to taste the fish underneath. Yet at the same time, every bite was fun and exciting!
Kalbi ($?) Korean BBQ Beef. OMG. I haven’t had good korean bbq in such a long time. This meat was so juicy and flavorful. It was perfectly cooked with just a slight bit of char. Yippee!
Conclusion: Although there is no happy hour or special promotions for this place, I would definitely go back. Its a small and cozy restaurant that’s intimate and comfortable. The staff here are wonderfully attentive and accommodating. With cold saki, sushi, and hot food, I couldn’t ask for more.
