Sushi-Gen: Omakase Orgasm
I don’t generally invite myself to things but when I saw the Noodles Partner and another friend were going to Sushi Gen, a spot I’ve always wanted to try, I asked if I could come along. They welcomed me with open arms. Though I feel a bit guilty because I think we ate way more than we should have (read: spent $$$).
The toro was so good that I had two orders!
The guy next to me at the sushi counter kept ordering red snapper. He must have had 5 orders of this. Served with a bit of spicy sauce, I can see why he loved it.
I’ve never had albacore so good before. I generally think it’s a little dried out when seared but this was perfect.
My nickname is Baby Squid because I eat so much seafood. I’ve never had it as sushi before and LOVED this!
Spanish mackerel is one of my faves and this was great.
When I was in Seattle, I had mirugai sushi (geoduck, also known as giant clam) and thought this was better at Sushi-Gen.
We staggered out of Sushi-Gen with happy tummies (and empty wallets). Back to eating noodles with the Noodles Partner but this is why eating really awesome sushi makes me hateful of the combo plates I sometimes “endure.”

I wanna go. Let me know when you and your wallet are ready to return. I’ll start saving now.
Plan for May!! I’m doing Petrossian next month and my wallet needs to recover from THAT.
