Aoki: Sushi

I forget about Aoki because it is at the north end of Broadway and when it is raining, its not always the firsts choice for dinner. I need to get some rain boots or a damn umbrella because I really like the sushi here and the ambiance...

We started with the agedashi tofu, which was good, but not as good as the agedashi tofu dish they serve at Hana (mid broadway). The tofu was cooked perfectly but the taste was sort of bland.

Next we sampled several rolls including, spicy tuna, spider and salmon skin. We also enjoyed the sweet shrimp and seared tuna (which is what was served in the bowl). This seared tuna was amazing. I would go to Aoki and eat this everyday. The raw garlic matched with the ginger was amazing. All of the sushi was very fresh and the seaweed was not over powering at all. I am a huge fan of wasabi and I found myself using less than I typically do because the natural flavors were BOMB.

The service is fast and the sushi chefs are cool. Although, we did not have any green tea ice cream during this visit, I also recommend getting down on dessert. Not to mention they have a full menu besides sushi...which I still need to check out!

i haven't been to aoki in years..! not because it isn't good; it all really boils down to location. i don't live on the hill, and when i visit, you're right, i generally don't hit up anything on the north end of broadway... i'm glad you mentioned aoki, because maybe we'll go...that is, if i can find a parking spot. said...

last time i went was with you, jadey.

awwww. good times.
