Thanks to this board, I was able to eat at Kiss Seafood last night. This tiny tiny tiny three table and five counter seat restaurant was a gem! Most people opted to order the omakase, either regular at $40 or special at $60. In additional to the two omakase, there was an extension a la carte appetizer and sashimi menu available.
My friends and I ordered one of each omakase, a steamed snapper and tofu with daikon radish appetizer and an assorted nigiri platter.
Everything was impectable. The fish was fresh, the cut was generous, the presentation was clean and artistic and the service was friendly, albeit a bit slow (but we didn't mind, it was a two people operation, you have to cut them some slack). There was a large sake selection, although we didn't order any and wouldn't know god from bad anyways.
Our dinner took a little over two hours and afterwards we headed over to Creation Desserts to get something sweet after all the savory.
Creation Dessert is on Geary between 16th and 17th. This is an Asian/Chinese dessert cafe. They serve lots of mango desserts and various geletin, smoothies, shaved ices, rice balls and other unusual desserts.
We ordered their famous freshly made mango mochi, as well as mango pudding with fresh mango and coconut ice and a rice ball soup served in coconut milk.
All three items were delicious, not very sweet (such is the hallmark of Asian desserts). Unfortunatly, service was terrible, and the place is a little bit messy and unkept. However, given it's open late and they serve hard to find desserts, I'd still probably go back.
Reservation for Kiss is a must.
