Sushi by Yuji

March 21, 2014

Salmon Carpaccio - 2+

J's comment > well seasoned, fish very fresh

Ebi & Asparagus roll - 2+

J's comment > ebi and asparagus both very crisp, one of the better ebi & asparagus roll I've ever had

Ume shiso roll - 2

Avocado roll - 2+

J's comment > ume roll not bad, but a tad too sour for my liking; avocado roll had a good balance between avocado and rice; rolls did not fall apart in the least.

Shiro Roll: Tuna, salmon, masago, hamachi, avocado, squid, octopus, saba - 2

J's comment > not bad; very well put together, the mayo was definitely the ingredient that united all the fish and avocado in a really good balance; thing though is, each piece of roll was so big that it was really hard to eat it properly (all in one bite).

Unagi nigiri - 2+

Avocado nigiri - 2

J's comment > unagi had sufficient flesh and wasn't just the skin on rice; the avocado roll was better balanced than the nigiri version

Hamachi Sashimi - 2

J's comment > not bad; fish slightly warm

Spicy Chopped Scallop roll - 2

Hamachi nigiri - 2

J's comment > scallop roll wasn't bad, but definitely on the spicy side; hamachi nigiri also slightly warm as the sashimi, but fish was OK

Tanuki Udon - 2

J's comment > udon and soup were OK, but unfortunately the crispy tempura bits were all soggy, just as intended but not the way I like it

Toro nigiri - 1

J's comment > I've never seen a piece of toro that looked like it's bleeding and its flavor didn't redeem it either; flesh slightly stringy, not very buttery

Complimentary Pocky - 2


Sushi by Yuji on Urbanspoon

Extra Comment
Word is Yuji used to be the chef at Shiro Japanese but left to open his new digs here. FYI, if you noticed, the menu is also almost entirely raw / uncooked items, none of the deep fried chicken wings, yakitori, etc. stuff.
