The birthday festivities continued with my birthday at Sushi Sushi. Originally, Smooth Obturator wanted to go to Maude or Trois Mec, but was unable to snag a rezzie. No worries because Smooth Obturator fell back on his trusty Sushi Sushi. Let's be honest, LA is riddled with expensive sushi places. Smooth Obturator and Triple T have been to many of them, but Sushi Sushi is the stand out spot for them. It might be hard to take a place called Sushi Sushi seriously, but the sushi here is SERIOUS. For omakase, I was supremely stuffed. I'm not sure if it was because it was towards the end of the night and the chef was trying to clean house or all the beers he was drinking was causing him to be excessively generous.
I never had raw baby squid like this before. I guess squid has some innards and guts that area usually removed when you buy them in the store? I'm actually not totally sure, but something was different tasting about it and it felt like I was eating squid guts but it was so delicious! Not off or fishy tasting. It was also lightly dressed in some ponzu. Wow, I couldn't believe squid could taste this way.
