On the Road-Vacaville-Hisui

On our way back from the Niners Game on Sunday we decided to eschew our usual stop off place (Nantucket, Crockett)and instead went to a place I have seen advertised along the freeway-Hisui, Japanese Steak House in Vacaville. This place is incredible. All-you can-eat Sushi, Hibaci and off-the-menu. Exotic rolls, very fresh fish, custom orders, and an actual boat on the water sushi bar. In another part of the restaurant is a hibachi area with 6 hibachi tables and a chef for each. The food looked incredible at both the bar and hibachi areas, we didn't eat at either so I can't give a report on these areas but the food looked very tasty, with a lot of people in both areas.Maybe next time. There is also an off the menu area. Traditional Japanese fare with steaks, seafood and sushi and sashimi. Because we were not familiar with the 3 different restaurants in one idea, we went with the menu order. We wanted to sample all of the restaurant's foods we ordered a combination dinner for two (19.99 each). Teriyaki chicken, Steak, Teriyaki Salmon, Sashimi, Sushi, Tempura and the usual miso soup, beans and tsukonomo. The service was impeccible, no water glass went empty, the food was served by attentive, yet non intrusive servers. The food was phenomenal, the teriyaki Salmon was perfect, the best I have ever eaten. the Tempura was breaded with a very light batter, the shrimps fresh and the veggies just right (crispy, yet cooked through). The freshness of the fish in the sushi was outstanding, as was the soup and the rest of the meal. The Steak was done pretty well, but it wasn't quite up to the rest of the meal. All in all the food was outstanding. Now we have another place to go on those trips to the city. Try Hisui, just past the Nut Tree on I-80.
