Zushi Puzzle - at the bar [San Francisco]

I visited an occasional Sushi haunt of mine last night in the Marina.

I am pleased to report not much has changed, which is a good thing. Roger San is firmly at the helm, and will guide you politely and firmly according to your taste. He always asks what you will not eat first - in my case - octopus.

We had the following - don't remember the exact order but here's my best shot ...

Ankimo - really good but not as sublime as Ino

Uni from Mendocino - fantastic - ocean on your breath and palate

Live Mirugai with slivers of lemon


4 types of tuna - negi toro, chu toro, etc.

Copper River Salmon - melts in your mouth but has a bit of an after-taste

Ama Ebi (the mandatory fried heads)

Sardine (from Japan)

Kobe beef (from NY) - top seared with a blow torch

Salmon Roe - a spoonful of heaven essentially

Dessert was a dollop of Wasabi ice cream on a bed of berry sorbet - outlandishly good.

Lots of bottles of Echigo Stout, Asahi Kuronama straight from Japan, and the customary couple of bottles of Asahi made in Canada. Also had a small bottle of Junmai Ginjo.

When we left at 10 pm, the place was completely full and had a long waiting list. Highly recommend an evening at the sushi bar.
