These were live shrimp just minutes earlier!  Sadly, they weren’t very flavorful.  I liked the fried heads though.

They give you free edamame and miso soup, which is nice.  The soup isn’t bad.  The edamame needed salt!

The “Yellowtail Delight” — it wasn’t entirely delightful but it was okay.  It wasn’t as spicy as it looked.

Final check amount: $21.85
Price per person: $10.93

NOTES

  • The server was a pleasant fellow and very enthusiastic about his recommendations. It was clear he took pride in working at the restaurant. He asked us if we wanted the shrimp heads from the sushi fried, and he took the trouble to inquire with the chef which fish was freshest today.
  • Despite the adorable server, the meal was underwhelming in the most boring way. The food and the ambience of the restaurant was just so meh.
  • We went and had Sage Cake afterward as a palate-cleanser.
