Sushi Alert: Kitsho in Cupertino

Porthos | Jun 8, 2006 11:59 PM

Had some pretty darned good sushi at Kitsho tonight. I would rank it a solid 8.5 on the sushi scale. It loses points for the sushi rice but the fish was amazingly fresh and there was a very good imported selection.

We had:
Kinmedai: very fresh and rich. They gave us 2 different cuts. The cut near the belly was excellent. My first sighting here in the bayarea.

Shimaaji: this was amazing. Richer and silkier than the kinmedai.

Aji: softer and oilier than the shimaaji but not as refined. As far as aji goes, it was excellent quality

Toro: they called it o-toro but it was probably only chu-toro quality, much more red, and not enough white.

Copper River Salmon: dark orange, pretty good, but I'm not a fan of salmon for nigiri.

Japanese Aji: also very delicious and silky.

The quality and selection of the fish was the best I've had up here so far. My only beef is that the rice is only average and the use of paste wasabe.
