Palo Alto CA: Fuki Sushi
Fuki Sushi has been here forever. Tonight was my first visit since I was a student many, many, many years ago. The setting is, like many Japanese restaurants, unassuming on the outside. Inside the room is elegant but not stuffy or formal. (They also have tatami rooms.) The service was very good.
This is the agedashi tofu. The tofu was very lightly fried in a very delicate batter. The sauce is soy-based but with a good dash of heat. The sauce takes away the crunchiness of the batter but without removing its basic crispiness. The light sauce was a treat in itself.
The dish on the right is big eye garlic tataki. It's tuna with chili peppers, some fish eggs, and garlic sauce on a base of fried renkon chips. I loved the combination of textures and flavors.
All my other sushi was also excellent. I ate most of the ginger straight---it was downright sweet.
