Sushi UO

Do you know what UO means in Japanese? "FISH".

Jason and I have been here a few times. We have sat both at the sushi bar and at the table.
needless to say, we enjoyed sitting at the bar a bit more. The chef is a pleasant young gentleman who obviously works his magic well behind the counter.

This was Hamachi sashimi with Ponzu-type sauce drizzled on it with some sprouts and Myouga on it. mmm

Tuna "Negitoro" atop sushi rice that's been charred with Nori and soy reduction

Sea Urchin (uni) on top of a raw scallop with his flavored salt sprinkled on it...

Omakase is the way to go.

Sashimi plate. Im not going to try to remember the correct fish in this collection. All I know is that everything was at their exceptional freshness. Just beautiful.

This was one of my favorite. Uni wrapped in Shiso leave and deep flash fried, Tempura style. Crispy on the outside, gooey and fragrant on the inside. heavenly.

Sushi UO could be a bit hard to find. I'm still not sure if I can make it there without Jason. But their food is well worth the trip. you won't be sorry! Im from Tokyo. Try getting something like this in this quality for this price in Tokyo! I think not~
