Nate

Orion - my favorite beer. More so when in Okinawa you get it "nama biru" or fresh draft beer. Oishii. Even the bottled is good in Okinawa. Here with the exported version there's a diffferent taste but still good. I miss the real stuff!

Jeff C

Kirk, Aiyaaah, you've unleashed the sushi craving monster. I think its even worse than the Banh Mi monster.
Ohh noooo!

caninecologne

hi ed, what an epic post! the crunchy shrimp head, clams in the clam shell, and the herring roe looks especially tempting. i just showed my husband the WTF roll and he just laughed at the "swimmers"! :O

Chris

hi Ed everything looks great...

but note to self: skip the WTF :/

tofugirl

Hahahaha!!! Oh my god, the wtf roll!!! The smiley swimmers are a particularly nice touch.

ed (from Yuma)

The Orion was good, Nate. My old sushi chef in Monterey was from Okinawa, so I had to try it. He also used to have bottles of spirits with snakes in them -- I think from the island as well.

And yeh, Jeff, the post makes me crave sushi too.

Thanks cc. It was good sushi. And yes, togugirl, the wtf is amazing, but I will skip it just like you Chris.

I can't imagine what you could say if you were served such a thing. It'd be hard (excuse me, I meant difficult) to say anything that wouldn't be suggestive or worse.

Love your post on Sushi Yaro, Ed. The Mr. and I stumbled upon it one day while in the area for something else. We were ravenous and had no idea where to eat in that part of town. I searched for sushi on our GPS unit which showed we were .2 miles from "Sammy Sushi", which I'd heard good things about. We were tentative with the name change and all but were certainly not disappointed. Now we go as often as we can afford to. I'd rather wait to go there and have everything fresh than settle for something of lesser quality. SO FRESH! Oh yeah and we've been wondering what the WTF roll was and why the menu said 18+... and now we know. SO glad we didn't order that with our 16 year old, we all would have been red faced!

Nate

Ed - The spirits are awamori, the Okinawan distilled hard liquor. Wicked stuff!

ed (from Yuma)

Thanks Nate, for the info. I learned a lot from Kazu in Monterey. It must have been strange growing up in Okinawa in the late 40s.

You got lucky, Lynn. There is a lot of mediocre sushi in SD (and some good stuff too), but with worse luck, you could have stumbled onto the place when Sammy wasn't there (between Sammy Sushi and Yaro) and never come back again.

Jeff C

Ed, sorry about mistaking your byline for Kirk. Great pics.

ed (from Yuma)

No problem Jeff, I'm flatered. Apologize to Kirk :-0

Jason

I always love a good post on Sushi Yaro although we tend to go on Sundays when Zo-san is the only one manning the bar. The ankimo is definitely the best there, for some reason it lingers with me for the entire evening... it's like the gift that keeps on giving.

Alyssa

Wow, the WTF roll is so detailed! Great range of dishes from Sammy.

Rosa

Shrimp heads
Shrimp heads
Yummy crunchy shrimp heads...

WTF roll!?!? Love it...

ed (from Yuma)

I don't think I've been served by Zo-san, but Kirk speaks well of his talents.

"Detailed" is a good word, Alyssa. Like I said earlier, it's difficult for me to "bring up" the WTF roll without some sort of a double meaning. So I will try not to touch that subject again.

Thanks for shrimp head poem, Rosa.

Su-Lin

ha ha! That is some serious food pornography!

caninecologne

I finally saw where this was! I had to park on the street since parking in the lot for Pangea was full. it's so hidden! It's also next to 'Thang Thang' which should get an award for the best restaurant name EVER! well, besides, Pho King, of course!

Jon Yim

Orion...my favorite of all beers from Japan...as an old Okinawa hand (grew up there in the 70s as an Army brat teen, returned in the 80s as active duty US Navy enlisted), I always preferred the local brew over the imported brands...even have a few bottles of it stashed in my fridge at home, purchased from Zion Market on Mercury St...
