Sato II-Sushi Pizza

prissl | Dec 14, 2003 08:02 AM

Sato II opened up in Stoneham MA about six months or so ago. It identifies as a Chinese & Japanese restaurant, however I am not so sure Jamacian Chicken or Carribean Seaweed Salad qualify as Asian cuisine. I had gotten take out from Sato several times and enjoyed the fresh, large portions. I visited Sato the first evening of our last big snow storm and saw on their "specials board" an item: Sushi Pizza. I asked about the dish and the bar-keep explained the concept. I returned last night to dine-in and try this interesting item. WOW!!! Let me describe: This was an eight-inch in diameter, half inch thick piece of sushi rice that had been quickly pan seared to create a crisp effect. A thin layer of spicy sauce with a touch of wasabi cover the "crust". Layered on top were minature veggies, raw fish filets and avocado in a unique design. The dish was sliced like a traditional pizza. What an incredible piece of edible art. The flavors were wonderful and the crunch of the crust was delightful! I could easily become addicted to these at $8.95. One sushi pizza was a meal for me (note, I don't eat huge meals). Although the pizza was listed as a special, the bartender told me they'll serve it whenever requested!
