Best Sushi during Hibernation: Kobe Sushi

sushiI blame everything on the rain —  the traffic (which takes an hour to travel mere three miles); decrease in productivity (cold weather makes me absolutely lazy), unexplainable hunger (well, maybe that’s everyday for me)… everything. Thanks to the weeklong rain-fest in Los Angeles, I consumed extra 50 cups of hot chocolate (just to stay warm and cozy), spent extra few bucks on takeouts for dinner (who wants to go grocery shopping in pouring rain?), and spent the entire weekend in my pajamas (I can’t remember when was the last time I took shower … sorry, too much info there). It was a total unproductive, completely useless weekend for me.

What kept me alive was this lovely and friendly (and virtually unknown) Kobe sushi restaurant that I can dash to and bring food to go. Without this place, I would have just stayed in bed and starved to death. I had absolutely no desire to stand in the kitchen to cook, or put on clothes to go out to eat, so the takeout was the only option to keep myself adequately nourished as I hibernated like a bear in winter snow.

Here’s what I brought home and enjoyed at a comfort of my own home as I listened to the rain drop from the window: saba (mackerel), salmon, yellowtail and ika (squid) sushi, and a spicy yellowtail hand roll (The usual. I’m a creature of habit). I’m not a huge fan of their rolls (say no to mayonnaise!) but the nigiris are simply amazing. Although noone seems to embrace this tiny, cozy place hidden in a corner shopping center as much as I do (maybe people just can’t find the place?), trust me when I say that it offers one of the best sushis around.

Okay, time to go back to bed now.

  1. Have you ever been to the Tsukiji fish market? I love going there when I go to Tokyo because they have the best sushi in the world. I just got back last weekend and it was great as always. It’s a shame they wouldn’t let me take pictures though. Anyway, I ate a lot of ramen too if you haven’t noticed on my blog. ttyl.

  2. Hi Keizo! Welcome back! I really enjoyed your posts from your Japan ramen adventure! But what was up with those black gyozas? Hee hee … they look like an Ultraman suit! Your ramen pictures made me want to visit Japan and experience those delicious ramen.

    I’ve never been to Tsukiji fish market but I would LOVE to check it out. I haven’t been to Japan in so long — about 10 years? I was born there and lived there until I was 9, but I was never able to go back regularly due to crazy work schedule! Hopefully soon.
