Favorite Thing at Uchi?

Since so many people on this board are Uchi fans, I being one of them, I thought it would be fun for everyone to name their favorite thing to order at Uchi. Mine is the Hamachi Cure. It is pieces of yellowtail, marcona almonds, white raisins, and Asian pear on yucca chips. Beautiful presentation, great flavors and textures.

    1. We actually don't have a favorite Uchi thing. We usually just sit at the bar and have the sushi chef taking care of us just serve up whatever he feels like. The mix is usually 80% from the daily specials (which IMO are always the most interesting, new, clever, dishes), 10% nigiri sushi and 10% "other".

      One "regular" item that we often order is the "Ton Tamago" ("bacon and eggs"): grilled pork belly with grilled quail eggs and "candied" scallions.

      Oh, and we always have whatever the "dessert special" is that day: it's great 90% of the time.
