Best Sushi Item

What is the best sushi/sashimi that you have ever had.

Right now I'm going with the simple Toro nigiri, but I would love to hear other faves so that next time I see them I know to get them!

  1. I've always held that, in my opinion, when it is at its absolute best, there is nothing more pure or more delicious or more texturally exquisite than fresh salmon sashimi.

    Right behind that is an uni handroll with uzura.

        totally!!! I love me some salmon!

      2. Best sashimi: yellowfin pulled out of the Indian Ocean, cleaned properly sliced and eaten with shoyu and wasabi within four minutes.

        Best sushi: what my mother used to make.

            "white tuna" isn't in fact tuna. if you are talking about the solid white fish that is creamy and oily then it's in fact escolar.

            Oh man, Sam, that sounds utterly delicious! (Both of them, really.)

          3. Uni gunkan sushi, a textural and flavor symphony. Crisp nori, smooth uni, yielding shari

            1. Hm...Live uni with the feelers still moving a bit, or raw lobster sashimi...naahh. I still like mirugai/geoduck clam taken from the fish tank, cleaned, cut and sliced and eaten raw. yummy yummy.
