finally! real sushi on cape.

we've been hitting misaki every week or so and while its not bad sushi, its also not great sushi. but moreover, i was really missing the sushi experience. sitting at the sushi bar, talking with your sushi chef, ordering as you go, getting their recommendations, interacting... legitimately neat specials that change.

and inaho might be better sushi, if only slightly. but the atmosphere is definitely lacking there.

someone suggested to me recently that i oughta try Mac's Shack. We've been twice in 2 weeks. It is EVERYTHING a sushi place should be that Misaki and Inaho aren't.

Ichy and Jun, the main chefs, are awesome. They were friendly, personable.... they were responsive, recommended items, etc. The menu items alone were great- there was a yellowtail jalapeno sashimi, and a great halibut sashimi with a hot ponzu. We were wowed though, by fresh sea urchin, in the shell. Our ama ebi was as good as any I've gotten. White tuna and mackerel didn't disappoint either. I even found the seaweed salad to be above par. Yellowtail collar was the best we've ever had. There's still a good assortment of rolls, and between the sushi offerings and a few raw bar supplements, its a fabulous treat all around.

We've found a new hot spot for us to hit... and I know Wellfleet isn't a skip away from Hyannis, but still. Its THAT much better.... it'll be a LONG time before Misaki sees our business again.
