Kobe Beef at Sakana

I had a wonderful mother's day meal at Sakana last night. The Japanese restaurant in Nanuet, in the alley near Barnes & Noble. Dougie the chef always prepares a delicious omakase meal, but this time he went over the edge. I had 6 dishes, but there were 2 that really stood out. I ordered the Kobe beef (sushi?). 4 small slices of the beef on top of rice, bound with seaweed ($10.00), and topped with the smallest dab of a sauce. I've never tried Kobe beef before. It was scrumptious! Those small pieces of meat were filled with such rich flavor and velvety texture. The only thing I can compare it to is the richness of bone marrow, multiplied by 10. My final dish was live scallop sliced on a shell, with a light soy, maybe mirin? based sauce drizzled on top, on the side were 2 pieces of ikura sushi, blended with more of the scallop prepared in a spicy sauce, then topped with quail eggs ($16.00). It was all so good!
