Most Original Sushi


Not your father's sushi. Actually, it's not his father's sushi. Jimmy Kim took over this Grand Avenue standout from his dad and spun it in a new direction. The recipe worked — ensuring long lines just about every night (except Sundays, when the restaurant is closed). Somehow this inventive sushi paradise has managed to slip under the Zagat radar. But Zagat's loss is the sushi lover's gain, as long as you're not afraid to be blown away by fresh takes on the traditional. Many of Kim's creations just can't be found elsewhere, from the perfect crunch of the addictive Double Eagle roll to the tangy 49er's roll, topped with salmon and fresh lemon slices. But even the more traditional dishes impress. Don't miss the crispy agedashi tofu paired with an unforgettable sweet ginger sauce. Order the sashimi appetizer — ask them to substitute all-white (albacore) tuna for the mixed selection — and you'll swoon as the buttery slabs melt in your mouth. Aside from waiting out the line, the main challenge is getting full too fast. The hefty portions will ensure you return again and again to find your favorite combination of the fresh, lovely creations Kim has crafted to culinary perfection.
