Light. Clean. Always a good way to start.
Particularly delicious without being overly fatty and lingering on the tastebuds.
A true delight here!
A little kick of yuzukosho was yums!
I get pretty excited when I see any sushi with bits of something on top.
You don’t get a lot of this at sushi places. It might have been the tastiest piece of the meal. The char seemed so subtle but made a huge impact on the taste. It brought out the more fatty and umami characteristics. So good!
I’m only just lately beginning to develop a palate for this fishy salty buggers.
Taken with my iPhone so forgive me for being out of focus. It wasn’t the sexiest piece but goddamn so good! I do prefer my uni with the nori wrapped around though.
I also never liked sweet shrimp much, but I love it these days.
I ain’t gonna lie. Ohshima is pretty frickin’ good sushi, price aside. And then when you factor in how much you pay compared to other sushi places that might charge you $50-100 for something similar, well then its just yippy skippy fantabulous! The crappy thing about Ohshima is that it can be quite a wait and if you want to make reservations you can only call between the hours of 5-5:30pm. So weird, right?! I’ve missed that narrow window so many times and actually have only eaten here for lunch as a result. I feel bad that I brought Perpetually Underwhelmed and The Gunner here to eat in the dining room. At that time, I didn’t know the experience would be far superior at the bar. Next time guys! I highly recommend Ohshima for really solid sushi in the good old OC.
