Finally made to the original Oishii after so long! Now I have completed my quest of conquering all the Oishii's and they are all beyond amazing.
We found ourselves 2 blocks away from Oishii after a sushi making class (and already being stuffed out by sushi), but how could we pass the perfect opportunity to venture into this legendary sushi place? (No line and no wait on Saturday at 4 pm)
The place is small, with around 10 seats at the sushi bar and one table that sits a few people. And you really must try pretty hard to squeeze in one of the seats. ALL VERY WORTH IT. A wall full of food awards and recognition plaques says a lot.
The food is amazing, from presentation of the dish, to quality of the fish, to the very taste. Perfection can be found here. We ordered just one maki (negitoro maki), agedashi tofu and himachi kama (how we wished our stomach can hold unlimited food). The negitori maki is surprisingly simple, fatty tuna with scallion with seaweed on the outside. Who knew. The fresh flavor of the scallion prepares your mouth for the delicious, tender, soft toro, so refreshing, so heavenly. The portions for the hamachi kama and agedashi tofu are relatively large (compared to Oishii Boston). The hamachi kama is cooked thoroughly and tender but not drying, the flavor along with the sauce, exquisite. The age dashi tofu fittingly light, but full of flavor, the scallions, pickled veggies and dry bonito flakes complements the flavor. The outside is perfectly crispy and the inside soft and melts on your tongue.
It's also really entertaining to watch the chefs create their wonderful and unique dishes, cavier with gold flakes, uni shots with quail egg while planning out what to order next time in my head.
What an experience. I'm so impressed with is that all the Oishii's have consistently wonderful food with exquisite quality. That is perfection.
