West Palm New Sushi--Pat Gogo

GatorFL | Jun 21, 201505:05 PM     4

After years of mediocre sushi, I've finally visited a place that is better than the run of the mill sushi restaurants in the area.

Before I continue, I must first admit that I became a very spoiled sushi critic in the early 2000's. I discovered an excellent sushi restaurant in Plantation called Takeyama. I worked nearby and became a regular of Chef Kenny, often enjoying lunch and dinner there. As a result I've compared every sushi I've had since Kenny retired and have yet to find any in South Florida that has equaled Takeyama. Nobu is the closest but Kenny's engaging personality has kept his restaurant the best in my eyes.

Since my spoiling I've simply accepted the mundane sushi in the area. I still eat it frequently, but as I said, every time I do I look back to Takeyama.

I'm happy to report I really enjoyed my visit the other night to Pat Gogo. It's on Forum Place behind the Palm Beach Outlets. It's brightly decorated with a friendly staff, and the sushi is a step above what I've found in the area. The chef is creative, offering some unique combinations not typically found in the area. I started out with a delicious wonton soup. It offered a flavorful broth with chicken-filled dumplings. The dumplings were good but the filling could have used a bit more spice. For my meal I enjoyed the Ann Salmon roll. I've never had sundried tomatoes in sushi before and it really works in this roll.

I was alone so that was the extent of my meal but I am looking forward to exploring more of the menu soon.

If you're near the Outlets, try it out and let me know what you think.
