Sushi Grade Fish - peninsula?

any suggestions on where to buy sushi grade fish on the peninsula? I'd be willing to drive south to San Jose, or perhaps to the east bay as well. The only place I know of is the fish market at Hwy 1 & 92 in Half Moon Bay (and I don't know if they have it all the time..)

  1. My brother has used salmon from Lunardis for sushi. The one in Burlingame.

    1. You might also want to check out Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose -
      675 Saratoga Avenue
      San Jose, CA 95106
      (408) 255-6699

      1. Three choices all in San Mateo...

        Nijiya market, 1956 S. El Camino
        Takahashi, 221 S. Claremont St
        Suriki, 71 E, 4th Ave.

            I've never heard anyone recommend Takahashi Market! I'll be sure to check it out this week. :)

          2. Nak's market in downtown Menlo Park -- it's on a small side street off of santa cruz avenue -- has a good selection of pre-cut sashimi, quail eggs, and pan-asian goods.
