      Did it have the sponge cake or pound cake consistency and flavor to it ?????

      1. re: kevin

        i would say a moist pound cake. "dessert sushi"

        1. re: jessejames

          Ok, then it's the kind I like.

          Shit maybe I'll hit up Shunji for a light lunch today.

          1. re: kevin

            wish i could join u -- i will in 2014.
            he made one up with the pickled plum thing in the middle instead of rice too which i lapped up.

    2. Hold up - I know what kevin is referring to, but as great as Shunji is, he may not offer this type of tamagoyaki.

      kevin, you'd have better luck finding this at Kiriko, Q Sushi, or Shibucho..

        Shibuch costa Mesa or shige's joint ?????

        Thanks buddy.

        Jl, what's the game plan for tonight ??????

        1. re: kevin

          Shibucho on Beverly, in Westlake.

          Happy 2014, everyone.

          1. re: J.L.

            love the photo of ron wood on their website

      2. Doesn't Kevin ask this question every 3 months?

        But no, Shunji's isn't what you're looking for. Stick to Kiriko, or save up for Urasawa. Q looks like they have it too.

            1. re: jessejames

              Agreed. You're like the new Shunji spokesperson on CH lol.
