Here's an update for the Sacramento Hounds that remember Al's meats from Elvas and H. You remember the high quality meats, the fresh fish, the chicken loaf! Well, he opened up this morning in Ikeda's on Folsom Boulevard, near Corti Brothers.
Apparently, the owners of Ikeda's are sparing no expense, so the ahi is sushi grade, the ribeyes are prime, and the chicken loaf sandwiches are, well the chicken loaf!
I have been rather put off by the fish quality at Corti Brothers, and the meat hasn't been the greatest. Now we East Sacramentans have a butcher / fish monger with whom we can build a relationship.
