It is with great sadness that I ate my last meal at Yoko's in San Mateo last night (formerly Suzu-you). Every meal that came out of their kitchen was like your grandma cooked it.
The original chef from the Suzu-you days left a couple of months ago, and I forgot to ask Yoko if he was planning on cooking anywhere else. Does anyone happen to know?
In particular, I went to Yoko's for the sashimi, the sukiyaki, and the saba shioyaki. Their saba was always incredibly fresh and flavorful, so simple and perfectly grilled so the meat was succulent and the skin crispy. I could have eaten it every night of the week. Does anyone have opinions on where else it's possible to get saba shioyaki this good??
