Everything at this Belltown sushi spot is stellar (especially the baked crab handroll), but make sure you order at least one salmon sampler and one tuna sampler. The salmon version has four different cuts and styles, from seared belly to smoky ikura gunkan maki (roe on top of sushi rice with a nori belt). The tuna version is similar, only everything on the plate (lean tuna, negitoro, marinated tuna, and fatty tuna) is from the same fish. You should experience the omakase at the counter at some point, but even if you’re sitting at a table the servers will come over and brush a soy sauce and mirin mixture onto your nigiri, which makes your dinner feel special. A meal here is a great way to have an exceptional sushi experience while paying slightly less than you would for dinner at Sushi Kashiba.
