Geisha's Kiss - Yellowfin Tuna (Hand-Line Caught), Tamago, Piquillo Peppers, Yuzu Tobiko, Lotus Chips, Namasu Cucumber, Butter Lettuce, Avocado, Green Onions Sesame White Soya
The most Yelped about menu item didn't disappoint. I'm not usually a huge fan of tamago, but thought this married nicely with all of the other components. The tuna was fresh and the proportion of rice was perfect.
Lava Nachos - Brown Rice Chips topped with Tuna Picante, Melted Pepper Jack Cheese, Avocado, Green Onions, Nori Strips Sriracha Aioli
The spectacular thing about this dish? Even at the end of the meal, the chips never got soggy. True to its name, the nachos had a nice kick to it that you could cool down with their avocado. Very large portion of tuna!
Porkivore - Oven Roasted Pork Belly, Shaved Cabbage, Avocado, Cilantro, Green Onions, Red Radish Mustard Seed Mayo
My husband's pick reminded me of Chinese roasted pork (the crispy skin one - siu yook). The flavors were good - especially the crunch of the cabbage - but I prefer fish to pork in my "sushi."
All in all, I'm glad we took a detour to give this a try. I'm always up for novel combinations of food. A bonus? This place was very eco-friendly. Almost every item was recyclable or compostable.
And I know I've talked about Gochi before, but I have better photos this time :) This is easily one of my favorite restaurants in the Bay Area:
Sake Oyako Meshi Clay Pot Rice - grilled salmon and salmon roe
One of my favorite dishes ever.
Post mixing - you can see those delightful crispy rice bits
Mentaiko Pizza - spicy cod roe, snow crab, mushrooms & bacon
Thanks Emily for the recommendation! This was SO good! The crust was perfectly crisp with a good topping ratio and yummy savoriness. The whole family enjoyed it - even our picky 4-year old :)
Hope everyone has a great week!
