Fresh Scallop Sashimi @ Wasabi
In a sushi bar as good as this one, the best eats are likely to be found among the specials on the markerboard behind the bar. Someone here must love scallops, because on many occasions I’ve found fresh scallops–as in never frozen, never treated with that gunk that gives supermarket scallops their month-long shelf life. When eaten raw, the slightly sweet flavor and seawave aroma all but submerge you in the green-blue ocean. Get it as sashimi, and go easy on the soy sauce.
