Has anyone been to Ino recently? I've been reading a lot of reviews both here and on Yelp and wondering if Ino-san has backed off at all on the wasabi bombs. I love sushi, but I'm not a fan of wasabi, and usually order it without. Some reports I've read have said if you ask him for no wasabi he'll accommodate you, and others that he'll refuse and berate you.
Also wondering if he's *really* as belligerent as he's made out to be to diners who do the wasabi/soy slurry. My partner is one of those rare types for whom there is no such thing as too much wasabi, totally getting off on the endorphin rush. No matter how good the sushi is, I'm not about to sit through being insulted because of her tastes, and she's not the type to hold her tongue if he does say something rude to her.
