Toro - 2

Salmon - 2

Hamachi - 2

Anago - 2

Tamago - 2

Avocado roll - 2

J's comment > not bad; all the fish were insanely fresh and beautifully cut, not a single tendon on any of the pieces; rice was well vinegared too; all the pieces were a tad too big though but at least the portions were in equal ratio of fish and rice, unlike Yuji's from Japan which had way too much rice to fish; when picking up the sushi w the chopsticks and inverting same to dip the fish in soy sauce, the piece stayed intact which was quite a feat; avocado roll was avg; wasabi was not spicy at all, even after adding whole chunks to the fish on top

#8 Hiyayakko: Garnished chilled tofu w special sauce - 2

J's comment > very soft tofu that falls apart if you're not gentle; could have used a tad more sauce though, I think the sauce was a mix of soy sauce and yuzu

#2 Ohitashi: Spinach w special sauce - 2

J's comment > tad salty; spinach tender but the fishyness from the bonito flakes won the flavor battle in this dish; didn't really get the 'special sauce'
