« Go Go Sushi and Ramen (Mira Mesa) | Main | Midweek Meanderings: Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign - Tan Ky Mi Gia Closes and others..... »

Is it sad that I recognize this place from the Bowling store next to it. I've driven by this restaurant so many times but have been too timid to try it out. Was this an omakase meal? $111 seems pricey but I don't have much to compare it to (as I rarely sit at sushi bar and order nigiri a la carte or omakase). I was actually in the same plaza over the weekend and remember thinking 'gosh, shirahama's windows are always blacked out'. The octopus nigiri sounds amazing.

This was omakaze, but I could have stopped the meal sooner. Also $26.50 of the total was for the sake. On the other hand, there is only one sake less expensive than that one and no beer. I also let him know that I like unusual, interesting, seasonal; I'm sure you could specify a price point. There is also a menu, so omakaze is not required. Maybe next time I will have some items off the menu just for something different.




Ah, so that's what kanpachi is! :) I always see this place whenever we go to Phuong Trang or the bakery next door.

What a great splurge dinner!


That's so funny! My notes usually say 'happy feet' or 'no'. Everything here looks really great; so nice you were able to fulfill some of your cravings.

Thanks billy; good to hear from you cc - I still get confused because I learned mostly the Japanese words for various fish, so sometimes I find the English confusing. I don't always take notes, Cathy, though it is best when I do because my mind gets more forgetful every month it seems. I don't really have a system.
