sushi zo - still good?

  • 9

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!

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

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

      1. yes, i had the best monkfish liver of my life there this week. Zo stands supreme, on many fronts

        1. haven't been in a couple months but when i went, the food and service was specatcular as usual.

          i really need to try the uni "spaghetti" as mentioned by hrhboo. that dish sounds fantastic!

            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.

                omg that sounds amazing. I'm going to have to try this :) Thank you!

          2. 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.
