“where was your best sushi experience?”

Sushi Ota

sushi ota in san diego.

 

every food blogger i’ve ran into has asked me this question, and nobody expects my answer.
it’s as if most think that good sushi does not exist outside of japan or los angeles.

my father-in-law has been mr. ota’s fan for a long time and the family has followed him through his last two previous restaurants. so, mr. ota’s sushi has always been their celebration food. this has been a problem because hiroki grew up to be a sushi nazi and is rarely satisfied when we try other places.

can’t really blame him though.
