sushi zo - still good?

rubyella Sep 20, 2007 06:16 PM

I'm taking my sweet heart out for his birthday and was planning on sushi zo. Haven't been there in a while - it had just opened. Is is still good? We get out pretty rarely so I hate to pick a dud! Mokfish liver? Favorites? Thanks!

    It is still as excellent as ever. Don't miss the ankimo and uni "spaghetti"

      And the scallops...
      And the blue crab hand roll...
      And the yuzu drink at the end

            I love the uni "spaghetti"!!!!! I told Keizo that he has to make me this everytime I go :)

            Definitely definitely definitely get the ankimo. And the yellowtail, and the aji, and the uni.

            I'd pass on the amaebi though, which last time cost $7 per piece. And no deep fried head!

              Yeah, but Keizo-san does something unique with the amaebi: instead of using wasabi as the "glue" for the nigiri, he used uni on my last visit.

            Here's my review (as an out of towner) from 3+ weeks ago.


            The "uni spaghetti" is is a small bowl of uni mixed with ika somen (Japanese squid cut up into thin noodle like strips), so the uni acts as a thick sauce.
