      TFM on San Pablo,Berkeley.

      End of story.

    2. Berkeley Bowl almost always has maguro, sake/salmon, and hamachi (and albacore) sashimi in the fish department, as one more addition, though Tokyo Fish Market is arguably the best choice (even amongst Japanese expats that i know).

        I usually park in the huge parking lot of the bingo parlor 2 doors south of TFM. Enter from 10th Street (1 block west of and parallel to San Pablo Ave).

          Tokyo Fish is #1. Berkeley Bowl does in a pinch, but only Sundays when Tokyo Fish is closed and I need a fix. Ranch 99 has a small selection of blocked fish (which I haven't been to in ages since living close to Tokyo Fish) which was passable.

        2. In answer to your request on a separate thread, no they do not take foods stamps. Checked with the ladies at the registers 1/2 hour ago. They do have a great selection of sushi grade fish.

            Just a fair warning to the OP - Tokyo Fish Market on San Pablo is the best, but pricey. I recently agreed to make ceviche for 40 and prayed Ranch 99's fish would be passable. No such luck.
