YumYum - Thank you for the Chow Tip!

Last week, these boards came to my rescue when I was trying to source some sushi-grade salmon. I had some great tips from the hounds, deciding to go with Yum-Yum.

I wrote a little report and took some pictures. If you are interested in seeing them skip to the link below.

Sushi grade Ahi isn't so difficult to source but the salmon seems more elusive. Places you might expect to be able to buy it like Wholefoods or The Ferry Building Plaza actually didn't stock it when I tried. From all of the Chowhound suggestions, I decided to journey over to Yum Yum's over in the Sunset district.

It doesn't look much from the outside.

Large hand written boards alert you to what is fresh, what is frozen, what is on offer.

The fish counter actually doesn't look all that special, but when I asked for a piece of "Centre-cut salmon", a new piece of fish was retrieved from the back of the store for me, by my charming French server. My recipe called for just 5 ounces of fish but when I saw how small it was, and how brightly it glistened, I asked him for another slice the same size.

Fresh, beautiful and only $5 for these two superb slices of fish. It took a lot of will power not to gobble it straight down as I prepared my recipe.

Yum Yum also serves sushi to go or to eat at one of the tiny tables nestled inside. I didn't have time to wait for any sushi this time, next time I hope to try it.
