Staying in Solana Beach, and wanted to check out Station Sushi, but I was running late and quickly ducked into Nobu at 9pm (closing time at 10pm). Normally I don't like going to a sushi-ya this late, but I had been a bit fish taco'ed out and wanted something fresh, not fried.
Everything that Chef Yagi-san offered was good. In order, I had the toro, the special hamachi, uni, albacore, salmon, squid, tai (Japanese red snapper), and I finished it off with ikura (salmon roe). I always drink nigori sake with omakase, and the unfiltered drink this evening was from Sho Chiku Bai.
The standouts were the albacore (had a nice acidity), the squid (whose texture I usually abhor, but here it went well with the "astringency" of the mint leaf), and the best fish of the evening was the tai.
I'm not a "roll" person, so this, by default, is my favorite sushi place in SD (I'd only been taken to other cut-roll places until now here in SD County), but I am eager to try others. Where else can I find a good market selection of the daily nigiri?
