Bluefin sushi - Outer Richmond

osho | Aug 20, 2007 02:36 PM

I detest writing bad reports, I really do. Which explains why I have not yet written one about Mexico DF !

The owner at Tekka sushi has this great habit of just not showing up to open his little establishment. It was one of *those* days.

I wanted to go to Kabuto or still better, Murasaki.
However, someone in our party called a friend, and asked for an alternate recommendation.

He directed us to Bluefin sushi. We were informed that the quality was as good as Kabuto, and the prices were much lower.

I decided to not worry too much, and have a good time with my friends.

The waiter did not have the faintest idea what “omakase” was. This was the first warning sign. I was told to focus on having a good time, I should have beaten a hasty retreat right then and there.

Very unfortunate results. Here is what we had:

Walu (2)
Hamachi (3)
O Toro (2)
Maguro (2)
Sake (3)
Hamachi Collar

And some other stuff I can’t even remember. It was all terrible.

All the fish was sub standard and spongy. I mean, it was the worst nigiri I have ever had.
The saving grace was the Hamachi collar !
The total was about $140 with tip and taxes, with one small scotch and a small bottle of sake thrown in. I can't even say - "You get what you pay for !"

Yes, it was much much worse than even Tokyo Express on Mission St. – that “place”, where I try to satiate lunchtime sushi cravings.

I will never, ever venture to this place.

I should probably stick to the following places in the city for sushi:
