*GONG* It’s my 20th visit to Sushi Yasuda. Hooray! *GONG*

OK, so you know how much I love this place. I’ll keep it short. I tried an Ume Plum and Salted Shiso Roll. I’m not a fan of Shiso (or any mint-like thing) but I tried to keep an open mind since Sushi Yasuda has made me an Uni fan (which I previously wasn’t). I still don’t like the Shiso, but the Ume was great, salty, sweet, sour, tangy, fruity. Chef Tomura told us that this Japanese specialty is aged for about 5 years. I imagine that is what makes the flavor so concetrated, yet so smooth.

Lesson learned, they’re great at more than fish. I’ll be trying more of their vegetable items soon.
