Everyone has their go-to sushi restaurant – Sushi Yasaka is mine.
(Btw, can someone please explain to me the difference between “umi no sachi” and “chirashi”?)
Every time I go, I always order the same thing: their umi no sachi, an overflowing bowl of sashimi over rice, for $26. We’re talking well over a dozen pieces of fish, an assortment of egg and roe and, in most cases, a raw oyster on the side. (There’s a picture – count it yourself!) Most importantly though, every piece I’ve eaten here has been FRESH. There has never been a questionable piece; you know, the one that put in your mouth and then can’t help but wonder if you should swallow? Never. All I’ve ever tasted is clean, sweet, fresh fish.
Considering that’s the approximately the same price other sushi places charge for a mediocre chirashi bowl (and trust me, I’ve had more than my share of mediocre chirashi), Sushi Yasaka is a steal.
