MF Sushi

MF Sushi 1401 Binz St. Houston, TX 77004 Yelp Houston’s best upscale Japanese fusion/sushi restaurant is without a doubt Uchi.  Uchi is probably more successful with its Japanese fusion dishes than its classic sushi.  Now there is MF Sushi here to fill that void.  The restaurant is strikingly modern, elegant, and unarguably beautiful.  The sushi bar is…

O Ya

O Ya 9 E St Pl Boston, MA 02111 YelpI didn’t know much about the Boston dining scene, so I let The Annoyer pick this place.  Of course it’s sushi because there’s nothing The Annoyer loves more than thinly sliced raw fish.  I did some research and found that my trusty Boston blogger, Tiny Urban…

Koiso Sushi

The one restaurant that has eluded The Annoyer during the previous 4 times he visited Maui is Koiso Sushi.  It’s one sushi chef manning an 11 seat sushi bar and one 4 top table.  It’s sort of like your neighborhood sushi joint, but you can’t just walk in any ole time you please and expect…

Sushi Zo

Sushi Zo 9824 National Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90034 sushizo.us Yelp Boy have I been wanting to try out Sushi Zo for a long time.  It has been on my radar ever since I started to appreciate really high quality sushi, and when I became willing to drop a couple hundies on one meal.  Sushi…

Uchi

Uchi 904 Westheimer Rd. Houston, TX 77006 uchirestaurants.com Yelp Bair Hugger Deluxe made sure Uchi was the first dinner I had in Houston.  I guess it’s a big deal here.  It is in Austin, where it was first opened up by Chef Tyson Cole.  He won Best Chef Southwest in 2011.  Uchi and its sister…

Nana San

Nana San keeps company with Ohshima, San Shi Go, and Ikko as Orange County’s best sushi spots.  I’ve been here before for dinner omakase and was thoroughly impressed with the offering.  It’s definitely the most bang for your buck compared to the other 3 places.  Lunch was no exception. Fishing Zebra Man has become my…

Sushi Ota

I have heard about Sushi Ota for a long time.  I have always had the sense it was THE sushi place in San Diego.  I couldn’t tell you what that is based on or where I got that notion from.  In any case, when I finally made my way down to San Diego for a…

San Shi Go

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  Orange County has some pretty good sushi.  When Pushy & Stubborn told me his go-to sushi joint is San Shi Go, I sorta scoffed.  I had been to the location in Laguna Beach and was totally underwhelmed by their large selection of rolls and other sushi…

Sushi Tsujita

It’s so awesome how Little Osaka, or the area on the Westside I’m used to referring to as “Sawtelle,” has totally exploded into this mecca of delicious Japanese-centric dining destinations.  I’m actually envious and wish I could turn back the clock to be a UCLA student now.  Back in the day, the only thing I…

Ohshima

I’m coming realize that Orange Country has some pretty darn good sushi at an amazing price point.  While I’ve never been to LA’s high end sushi places like Sushi Zo or the bang-for-your-buck joints like Hama Sushi, I have been to the ever popular Sushi Gen.  I was quite impressed with the omakase at Sushi…

Sushi Sushi

The birthday festivities continued with my birthday at Sushi Sushi.  Originally, Smooth Obturator wanted to go to Maude or Trois Mec, but was unable to snag a rezzie.  No worries because Smooth Obturator fell back on his trusty Sushi Sushi.  Let’s be honest, LA is riddled with expensive sushi places.  Smooth Obturator and Triple T…

Angotei

So the next few posts are gonna be all sushi.  I guess I ate a lot of it in the month of April.  The one good thing about Orange County is the pretty decent Japanese food.  Costa Mesa has a number of good sushi restaurants.  I had been to Angotei once before and I was…
