Went for some sushi last night with friends who have been raving about Jerry-Sans sushi bar. It is in Daiko restaurant which is behind the parking lot at the Nissan dealer on route 34 in West Haven. What a find. Jerry's sushi is unbelievable plus he is a funny, entertaining guy. We drank and ate, and laughed all evening. Never had Sake Bombs before (had 3) but make sure you buy one for Jerry. He gets funnier the knife moves faster and he just keeps putting new thing on the bar for you to taste.
I thought I was knowledgeable about all things sushi. Been eating the stuff for 20 years. He asked if I wanted the white tuna, I said I don't really like it. He said you probably have not had "the good stuff". He was right. The was not the bleached out looking fish I have eaten at other places. This was not bright white. It looked more like yellow tail but with a much different flavor. Melted in my mouth. Monk fish liver, Never had it before. Jerry makes it himself. Taste like a combination of foie grois and smoked white fish. It was delicious. On to the mackeral, again said not my fav.. You never had the mackeral imported from Norway. Again surprised.
Everything we ate was great. Try the rolls. Crunchy spicy tuna roll, Jerry roll, Jimmy roll. Prices seem in line with other sushi bars but quality was much better. If you are a sushi fanatic you have to visit. Engage Jerry and you will have an unforgettable meal.
