Amazingly delicious sushi. It won Best of Citysearch in 2006 for sushi and Chinese food, yet you never hear/read anyone talk about it. It’s on Jefferson right at 35th, so it’s pretty close to downtown, but it doesn’t get any of the hype Maiko/Kenichi/Uchi get. But it is SO GOOD.
We went for Mom’s birthday dinner last night, and four people at our table ordered Chinese food, while my brother and I ordered sushi. Their Chinese is good too, but their sushi is better. We had two of the special rolls: the White Dragon (can’t remember what fish was on top) and the Black Dragon (eel), both were excellent. The White Dragon was one of the best sushi rolls I’ve had in a long time, and the Black Dragon converted my brother to liking eel. We also ordered the Spider Roll–excellent as usual–and one of the best spicy tuna rolls I’ve ever had. My brother loved it so much he asked the waiter what the “spicy” was. He thinks it’s Rooster Sauce.
They don’t usually have a big dinner crowd, so they must make a fortune at lunch. They have fairly cheap Bento Boxes (sushi combos with miso soup and salad) for lunchtime, and they deliver, so that’s some of the secret. I also hear they have a great happy hour–I’ve never been–with something like 2 for 1 prices and cheap sake. I’ll report back on that if I ever make it to happy hour.
I’m letting you in on my secret … let me know your thoughts if you go!
