Hawai’i: Yanagi Sushi

Friday, May 4, 2012 2comments No tags Permalink 0

The sushi chef at Yanagi was feeling extra generous with the uni on Tuesday night.

It’s Santa Barbara uni, and served with the sashimi plate alongside hamachi, toro, clam belly, fluke with ikura, and scallops. Here’s a closer look.

We start with the sashimi plate then move onto a la carte orders of our favorites.

Ahi, king clam…

…monkfish liver…

…and negi-toro roll.

Always have to squeeze in an order of fried squid…they were out of baby squid, so this is the leg of one large squid.

Couple with miso soup…

…and if feeling extra hungry that night, finish with the sushi set. Uni doesn’t regularly appear in the set, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

And don’t forget matcha ice cream!

P.S. For those who asked, I’ll be compiling a list of my favorite sushi and Japanese spots on Oahu – will be emailing them out when ready ^_^
