1822 Callowhill St.
It was raining pretty hard when we got here, so I didn’t get a chance to take my usual photo of the outside so I settled for a pic of the sushi chefs at work. I was excited for this Korean-Japanese fusion (not the usual fusion, but more of a modern take on things).
we started off with the kalbi skewers because I was craving some Korean BBQ. I was hoping for more than 2 skewers but the marinade was your typical korean bbq. yum!
This has got to be one of my favorite dish of all times, so any time I see rock shrimp tempura on the menu, I have to order it. I don’t know if this one has the same caliber as Pod or Morimoto, but it was prepared well and tasted great.
I was expecting a lot for this roll but the lobster flavor was completely lost. I do love soybean paper wrap.
The medusa roll has shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy sprouts, and spicy mayo on the inside, with the lump crab salad, wasabi mayo, red tobiko, scallion on the outside. This was by far my favorite roll of the night. It was delicious and had great texture on the tongue.
I was not a fan of the triple spicy double tuna which had tuna, spicy sauce, siracha, tempura crunch, and scallion on the inside with seared albacore, simichi pepper and sweet glaze on the outside. I don’t know what it was about this roll, the flavor would not settle on my tongue. I definitely was getting the heat, but not in a good way.
Since I had only enjoyed one of the three rolls we had, I ordered the island roll right before the kitchen closed for the night. The island roll has salmon, spicy aioli, tempura crunch, with mango and wasabi tobiko. This roll saved my night. It was delicious and the mango added a very refreshing factor to it. A very nice way to end the night.
