Been craving for some good Sashimi for a while. Had my hope up high when I was in NYC thinking I could have my last lunch at the Sushi of Gari before I left my project, Gari turned out doesn’t accept walk in.
There isn’t really a good rated Japanese restaurant in the Denver downtown area. A little but out of the way, I found a pretty good reviewed Japanese restaurant, Sushi Sasa. It is about 10 mins walk from where my client is, which is on the edge of downtown. I wasn’t sure if I want to walk out of the way for 10+ mins but finally I decided to do it. Totally worth it!
Service is great at the restaurant. I sat at the bar where I could see the chef working. I checked the sushi/sashimi items I wanted on their menu paper and I handed that over to the chef. The chefs handed me my food one plate at a time. After a while, I couldn’t remember if I have ordered the Unagi or not. Since I waited for a while and it didn’t come, I thought I didn’t order it. So after all the items came, I asked for the check. Turned out I did order Unagi and it was on the check. I talked to the chef in front of me and sure enough he remembered not serving it to me. I decided to cancel it instead since I was already pretty full. Just when I was waiting on the corrected bill to come, the chef was nice enough to gave me a piece of the Unagi for free. Tasted great! I will for sure order it next time! (That maybe next week. :) )
The tuna and shrimps are so fresh.
They crisped up the shrimp heads. Tasted so good!
Uni was on the menu! Haven’t had good uni for a while. Loved it!
Tamago’s my favorite too. Saw the option to have it as sashimi. $5 for two pieces, yah, a bit pricey. But they tasted great!
