New Japanese Place in Petaluma: Gohan

lj2899 | Jan 5, 2007 08:30 PM

My husband and I dined at a new place in Petaluma called Gohan earlier this week. It shares a parking lot with Kohl's, right off the 101. Newly opened, they had a limited menu this week, but what we had was great. Right now they are offering their full sushi menu plus a special prix fixe 3 course dinner menu. We shared a dinner and a few rolls. We started w/a wakame (seaweed)salad topped w/real snow crab and caviar. I usually hate wakame salad, but this was beyond good. Our main course was the mixed tempura. It was authentic, portion size was decent, and it included a scallop, prawn and soft-shell crab! Yum. We ended dinner w/the best green tea cheesecake I've ever had. I make really good cheesecake, but this made me want to eat here every night just so I could finish my meal with this dessert. The owner came out to chat w/us and you can tell that he is truly passionate about his food, which we really appreciated (especially in the dessert, where he said he and his wife tasted many different green teas before selecting one that wouldn't make the cheesecake bitter). We are looking forward to returning soon and trying out their full menu.
