I had jokingly asked my colleague if he was going to take me out for lunch. He said, “Sure.” And that’s when the wheel started turning…”Seriously?” “Yes.” “I get to pick the restaurant?” “Sure.” “Really?” “YES!” “I’m going to hold you to your promise.” I had such a big grin. Four months later he kept his promise and Sushi Zo was my pick. My colleague, his wife and I headed off to Sushi Zo for lunch.
The waitress advised that we basically eat whatever the sushi chef wants to give us, and we were fine with a that, and it was AMAZING! Here are the pictures for you to drool at…
Kumamoto Kaki/Oyster (colleague ate this)
Ika/Squid Noodle with Uni/Sea Urchin (colleague ate this)
Kinmedai/Golden Eye Snapper
Shima Aji/Striped Jack
Meji Maguro/Baby Tuna
Aoyagi/Orange Clam (colleague ate this)
Squid (colleague ate this)
Toro Temaki/Fatty Tuna Hand Roll
The Yuzu Juice is the closest thing to a dessert at Sushi Zo. No green tea ice cream. I believe that it cost $160/ person...I don't think my colleague will take me out for lunch again...oh swell... The BEST lunch that I have had in my entire life thus far. If you have a generous colleague, pick Sushi Zo!
