I’ve blogged about Kaito Sushi twice now (here and here), so I’m going to keep this post short and simple. I couldn’t resist sharing some sushi photos from our latest visit about a month ago, and needed to get this post written before I forget what it was we had.
Kaito has definitely become our favorite place to get high quality, fresh sushi in San Diego (the fish is flown in from all over the world). We love sitting in Chef Joe’s section and he always prepares us a wonderful meal.
On our latest visit, Chef Joe prepared us this:
Scallop, two ways: raw and stir fried.
The finale was an uni sushi and an uni roll with clam and mint. Normally I enjoy eating uni by itself. But this combination with the clam and mint was so delicious. I actually enjoyed it better than just eating uni.
For each dish, the rice was already flavored so we never had to use the soy sauce or wasabi. I love that they make their own sauce for the rice. I don’t quite know what they put in it, but I really love it and find it hard to go back to regular sushi rice.
The night we went, we were informed they had skipjack the night before, which is the fiancee’s favorite fish. We’ll have to go back and try to catch them on a day they have some before the season for it is over.
