Yahiro: One man's goals

Andrew Raskin | Jun 19, 2001 01:32 AM

About two months ago, I was driving up to Marin to do some hiking. At that busy intersection in San Anselmo, I spotted out of the corner of my eye a Japanese restaurant called Yahiro [(415) 459-1504]. The name sounded right, so on the way back from the hike my friend and I gave it a try.

When I sat down at the counter, I noticed a piece of paper hung high on the wall. It's a list of the sushi chef's life goals. All of them have to do with golf, and with beating this guy named Dennis. Actually, I don't remember if his name was Dennis, but let's just say it was Dennis. There was stuff like, "Play golf with Dennis in Japan," "Beat Dennis in a round of golf," and "Play golf with Dennis in Scotland." When I saw these goals, I knew the sushi would be good without even tasting it. I ordered some basic stuff and it was all excellent. The agedashi dofu was light and tasty.
