best sushi in the mission?
love blowfish but I want to try something new.
Tokyo Go Go is imo the best sushi in the mission. Make sure to sit at the sushi bar so you can order from the Itamae.

Minako is wonderful. While their sushi is quite good, their best dishes tend to be either Yoko's own creations or traditional homestyle items. Service, albeit loving, can be quite slow, and if you're at all high-maintenance as a diner then you might not enjoy the experience.
Do not confuse Minako with Cha-ya on Valencia, which serves barely edible vegan Japanese.
thanks for the suggestions. my husband and i ended up going to kiji on guererro. and oh my goodness it was so delicious. we had the sashimi sampler which was beautiful and a few different rolls. really sweet service, too.
I think Kiji's on Guerrero at 22nd (so maybe just on the border of the Mission depending on what map you are using) is excellent. The fish is always fresh and high quality, and the rice has excellent texture. The rolls are creative without being weird. They also do a nice range of non-sushi items -- the vegetable gioza's and shitake miso soup are my favorites. Michelin recomends them, FWIW.
