Sushi Yasuda #33

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Sushi Yasuda 204 East 43rd Street, New York, NY 10001is already my favorite restaurant but when it’s super hot in the summer, I want to go even more. First of all, I can’t cook in this weather. Secondly, I can’t eat hot food in this weather either. Thirdly, I must continue […]

Sushi Yasuda #30

Sunday, May 24, 2009

There was no Sushi Yasuda #29 (see #28) because it was actually the first time we didn’t try anything new. Crazy right?  But this time, Lon immediately noticed blowfish on the appetizer menu as soon as he sat down.  The domestic Blowfish (Fugu), that they are serving right now, is bred poison-free. It’s flash-fried perfectly […]

Sushi Yasuda #28

Friday, April 24, 2009

It’s been way too long since our last visit to Sushi Yasuda. Between our busy schedule and the difficulty of getting reservations with Chef Tomura, we’ve gone nearly three months without it. Tragic, I know! But all good things come to those who wait, right? Well, in this case, we did get two new stellar […]

Sushi Yasuda #27

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Sure we’ve been to Sushi Yasuda once or twice before, but it just keeps staying awesome. Last night we had yet another new type of fish: Buri.

It’s a type of yellowtail that has a texture, similar to swordfish, firm and meaty. However, it’s fattier. It was wonderful.
In order to contrast the Buri […]

Sushi Yasuda #26

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

Perhaps you thought we weren’t posting on Sushi Yasuda anymore. Nope, not a chance. We just haven’t been there in 3 weeks, with Thanksgiving and all. But it’s a good thing we made it over there today. We got to try Sweet Shrimp Roe. As you can see, it’s blue, almost electric blue, like those […]

Sushi Yasuda #25

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Sushi Yasuda is still keeping us on our toes, with two new pieces this time.
The Yari Squid is actually the same species as the one they always have, but right now they have one from Japan. The texture is a lot creamier, melting in your mouth, literally coating your tongue. The flavor is the same.

We’ve […]

Sushi Yasuda #24

Friday, November 7, 2008

Last time, Lon went to Sushi Yasuda without me. Don’t worry. That won’t happen again.
Super quick: two new pieces this time, Swordfish and Aori Squid. Swordfish was so unlike what I expected. When cooked, it is considered a firm and meaty fish. As sushi, it is so tender and the flavor was like a mild […]

Sushi Yasuda #23

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Yesterday I was going to try Sakae Sushi with Jamie. He is a sushi-fan and both of us were excited to give Sakae a try. It seems like an interesting place as patrons order on computer and receive food by conveyor belt. Unfortunately, standing there in the cold, pouring rain, I read […]

Sushi Yasuda #22

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

I’m so glad we went to Sushi Yasuda last night. We were able to try the rarely available Botan Ebi (shrimp) and it’s roe. The Botan Ebi is larger than the sweet shrimp you usually see raw. It is similar in flavor but the large fleshy piece makes a textural difference, feeling more robust in […]

Sushi Yasuda #21

Wednesday, October 1, 2008

I missed Sushi Yasuda so much. We’ve been so busy with the triathlon, Chicago, and Rosh Hashana, that’s it’s been almost 3 weeks since our last visit.

Just one new piece this time, Sarume Squid, expertly scored, amazingly soft and almost creamy. Your teeth just sink right through, unlike most squid, a little more like certain […]
