Knowing that I had two dinners scheduled for this evening, I planned the first one at Sushi of Gari 46 with the intention of keeping it light. And that it was. We started off with hamachi kamayaki (broiled yellowtail collar), one of my favorite things to eat at a Japanese restaurant. It was silky, moist, and fatty — just the way I like it. Next, I ordered six pieces of sashimi (salmon belly, chu-toro, and kanpachi) with a side of white rice. (I can’t live without white rice, so much so that I even order it as a side to when I’m eating fried rice. Crazy, I know.) The sashimi was fresh and beautiful, as I expected it to be. Washed it all down with an ice cold Asahi while catching up with one of my besties. What a great first dinner… now on to the next one!
