Lunch at Sushi King

Met up with a friend for lunch at Sushi King. We’re both Japanese and this is not our top choice for the most exquisite Japanese food, but we chose it for their good selection and laid-back atmosphere.

Plus I like the little touches here that really make a difference for me. One of them is that they serve a shiso leaf as a garnish for the sashimi which to me is the finest herb accompaniment to a slice of ahi. Also they serve tonjiru (miso soup with assorted veggies and pork) instead of regular miso soup. Another is that their yakitori is actually what it’s supposed to be: chicken grilled on skewers, instead of some other restaurants that think yakitori just means teriyaki chicken. Not the same.

We both went with the lunch combination teishoku ($13.95) where you can select two entrees from an impressive list. My favorites from the list are the sashimi, fried oysters and yakitori, but today I went with a mini tempura udon and fried oysters. As you can see, the portions are pretty generous.

My friend chose chicken karaage and sashimi.

Besides their lunch specials, they’re also popular for their early bird and late night specials for dinner. I usually include a copy of the menu in my restaurant reviews, but unfortunately they didn’t have takeout menus available since they’re in the process of updating prices (uh-oh!?). Hopefully next time.
