Passing through the Sunset District on Sunday, I stopped at Yum Yum Fish on Irving for a quick lunch. I ordered and paid at the cashier and then took a seat at one of the three small well-worn tables in this fish market.

Posted prices include tax, for $12.45 I got -

Housesmoked salmon belly and scallion roll, $3.00
Spicy scallop and daikon shoot roll, $3.95
Bluefin chu-toro nigiri per piece, $3.50
Hamachi belly nigiri per piece, $2.00

Because I'd ordered more than $10 or more, a pot of green tea was complimentary. Otherwise, it costs 50¢.

The rice was a bit hard and dry for my taste, not sticking together enough on the rolls, and the nori was too chewy. But the fish was all good quality and you can't beat the price. I found the sauce on the scallops too hot and spicy, but other than that, it was all fine. I was surprised at how thick the cuts were. That piece of chu-toro would be two servings elsewhere. Next time I think I'll stick with nigiri or sashimi and forget about the maki.

But what I'm really curious about is the Provencale fish soup sold here. Has anyone tried it?
