Where can I find yummy gomae?
I love gomae but I never see it on sushi menus in Toronto. It's delicious sesame paste soaked spinach usually served ina tiny bowl becasue the spinach reduces so much.
I could eat a pound of the stuff.
Here's a pic of some:
The ohitashi, which is quite similar, at Toshi Sushi is quite nice. I can't recall offhand if it contains sesame or not, though. According to Shizuo Tsuji, goma-ae does and ohitashi doesn't, but I think that distinction often falls by the wayside in T.O. restaurants.
(As well, I don't know if it'll make a difference in yoru searches, but you might also see it spelled "goma-ae" or with some variant with two "a"s, since it's a combination of "goma" (sesame) and "ae" (dressing).)
