Kim and Ron ate at Mako Sushi a couple nights ago and had good things to say, so we decided to go for dinner tonight. I think this is the same spot that Jeanette told me about a long time ago. Total hole in the wall. Limited seating. Sushi bar and tables.
We brought mom and dad to have a sushi feast. And feast we did.
First, we had unagi, uni, tuna and salmon. The unagi was awesome. I haven’t had good eel like that in a very long time.
The uni was …. amazing. I have had uni at a bunch of different sushi places (even Sushi Gen) and I never took to it. Mako’s uni is superbe. There is no makes-you-wanna-spit-barf sea taste. The uni is smooth. Sea cheese. We are now, fans.
Dad has to have rice with a meal in order for it to be “complete” so we got him the teri-beef. Not bad. Beef was tender. The sauce was a bit mediocre but who’s going there to get full off of teriyaki?!
Yellowtail, more tuna and salmon. The yellowtail was super fresh. Melted in your mouth and tasted just right. I think I am warming up to yellowtail because I used to think it was too fishy. Now, I know, I must’ve had bad yellowtail.
Tiger roll (shrimp tempura with spicy tuna and avocado) and spider roll (soft-shelled crab with avocado, crab mix and roe). Both were really good, but I really love spider crab. Seriously? I could eat that all day.
Well, maybe not all day, but man. I love it.
Close-ups of the nigiri. Mmmmmm!!!
Albacore was okay.. not my fave of the bunch. The ponzu sauce was a bit strange to me. Not as ponzu-y as I like.
This is total food porn. Yellowtail close-up!
The sushi chef who, while we were there, had at least two sakes and 4 beers. AWESOME.
