We usually start out with bowls of miso soup and go on to sushi, but this time we also tried the okonomiyaki, a pancake with vegetables and seafood. It was full of shrimp and shredded cabbage, plus a nice dose of fresh ginger, and topped with a mayonnaise sauce and bonito flakes. The texture was somewhere between a pancake and an omelette, and completely delicious. More, please.
We also enjoyed some very fresh nigiri sushi with salmon, "white tuna" (escolar), and tuna, plus two rolls: the "Princess Di" (Avocado, tamago & sushi rice, wrapped in soy paper, lightly fried & topped with shrimp tempura, orange tobiko & spicy mayo); and a special of the evening called the "Skydiver" with soft shell crab, avocado, eel, and scallions. The former was rather like a spring roll, and served quite warm. The latter was very rich, and the soft eel and crisp soft shell made for an interesting play of textures.
While we have always found all of the seafood to be impeccably fresh and delicious, not to be missed is the chocolate Kahlua cake, served warm with whipped cream and fresh fruit. It's especially tasty with a scoop of green tea ice cream.
