Urasawa - Fugu?

I was hoping to take my girlfriend to Urasawa as a Christmas gift but heard that they no longer serve Fugu (Blowfish). Is this true? If so, is there any other place in So. Cal that does?

Beyond that, I'm certainly open for any suggestions for a gift for this adventurous foodie/wino girlfriend of mine. We did French Laundry last month so it's becoming harder to top each experience.

Thanks!

    Risking being off-topic here, I'd suggest the purpose of foodies in life is to enjoy, rather than trying to, as you put it, "top each experience."

      Well said RicRios.
      Being a foodie, to me, is as much about having a tongue taco at the car wash as it is about ordering the foie gras app at an au courant restaurant.

        I agree but somehow a tongue taco at the car wash is not appropriate for a Christmas gift... unless that is a euphamism. ;-)

        1. if urasawa doesnt have fugu, chances are you won't find it anywhere else in CA. since you have the money, just fly her to NY and go to Masa.

          1. Last time Hiro-san told me that they would have the fugu sperm sack available in January. I believe there is a supplemental fee of $150 in addition to the regular omakase.
