Sushi House Goyemon

I’m jumping on the bandwagon. This place has been getting rave reviews and now I know why. I walked in on a Thursday night and the place was packed. Luckily, one lone spot at the sushi bar was calling out to me.

Everything I tried was good (except for the uni… but I’m just not a fan of it).

Grilled pork belly – Amazing! One of the best pork belly dishes I’ve ever had… succulent, juicy, tender, crispy edge, perfect amount of fat… It comes with a mango salsa, but it doesn’t need it at all. Eating the pork by itself is the way to go.

Uni – I’m not a fan, but wanted to give it another shot since I’ve only had it a handful of times previously. After trying it here, I still don’t like it. It was too salty and texture is not the least bit appealing.

Tuna nigiri – fresh, bright, silky texture, not too much rice.

Moon roll – eel, scallop, tempura flakes. Excellent roll, the eel took a backseat to the distinct flavor of the scallop. And, they didn’t over-sauce the roll allowing the flavors of the main ingredients to shine.

Orgasm salad – Didn’t quite live up to it’s name, but still delicious. Nice bit of heat with the spicy chili sauce.

Spicy tuna crispy rice – Loved the crispy rice and the tuna was excellent. Each piece is big and it comes three to an order.

Hamachi nigiri – Wonderfully fresh, generous cuts of fish. The slices of fish were so big I couldn’t even see the rice it was sitting on.

Tofu cheesecake – made in house, this dessert was incredibly rich and creamy.

The service and experience at the sushi bar was great. Chef Fredo took time to talk to everyone and explain the menu even though he, and the other chefs, were slammed. This is one off the strip sushi spot not to be missed.
