Best chirashi in San Francisco?

  • k

I love chirashi. I can't afford it all the time and am often wary of trying it even at my favorite sushi restaurants as disapointment would ruin my love of a place.

The characteristics I am looking for is of course fresh delicious fish but also well flavored rice.

Does anyone have reccomendations?

  1. Try Sakae in Burlingmae or Kyo-Ya. Both pricey, but you get what you pay for.

      Kiku of Tokyo is also an excellent bet. It's in a downtown Hilton hotel. Honestly, I don't know for sure if Chirashi is on the menu but I'd be surprised if it wasn't.


    2. I think Maki in Japantown Mall is your best bet. I would definitely avoid Kyo-Ya on this count.

      1. Yuzu in San Mateo (sister restaurant of Burlingame's Sakae).

        1. I like the chirashi at Kobe Sake in San Bruno on El Camino Real.

          1. If price is no object I'd definately go with Kyoya, If I'm on a budget I'd goto Takara in Japantown, for best value/quality trade off
