WaSa Good Sushi

kevin | Sep 27, 200207:51 PM

Went to WaSa the other day. Had to try it out due to the recent accolades. And it is very good, but not like Nozawa and not like your traditional sushi (although you can also get unadorned -aka w/o sauced suchi). I tried the seared toro with ponzu, the ahi tuna with wasabi sour cream, the seared jumbo scallops with miso sauce and mushrooms and peppercorns, jumbo scallops with the aforementioned wasabi sauce, and yellowtail with jalopenos and ponzu, all were great and all were from the WaSa treasures section of the menu. great stuff. and the prices are reasonable thougb not cheap, also it's a good place to bring along your non-sushi eating friends (aka the teriyaki, california rolli, cucumber roll crowd, and the dynamite roll people). But for true chowhounds go for the treasures or the regular sushi. almost forgot also tried a piece of toro sushi, which was also very good. overall, it's a different experience, new unique sauces, and nice presentation. and such high quality for such a flashy place. although the quality might be a notch or two lower than nozawa or wasabi in pure fish terms. but with the sauces these are a wholly different experience esp. the ahi (non-seared) with the wasabi sour cream. the treasures hover around 5 for two pieces, except for the toro which is about 8 bucks. so you can get filled up for possibly under 40 bucks a person. much cheaper if you order entrees which are about 10-15 bucks for a whole lot of food. but the hounds will probably bypass that for the treasures. good eatin. definitely worth a viist. and it definitely has caught on as seen by the massive crowds (went to wasabi a couple months ago and i was practically the only one there but got a chance to talk sushi with katsu-san).
