  • Chin Restaurant and Sushi Bar
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Chin Sushi Bar and Restaurant facet_type_id: 6683fa40-5f3a-1032-bdcd-f98d3f98f5e6 html_text: 'A Tootsie Roll is known for its chewiness and cocoa flavor. But at Chin Sushi Bar and Restaurant, the Tootsie roll takes on a different form: a sushi roll in which crisp shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and salmon lay snugly against one another. Or try the Joey roll—the miso-marinated tuna, unagi, and avocado combination has nothing to do with a baby kangaroo. Chin Sushi''s chefs turn out such catchy-named specialty rolls—more than 30 in all—inside a brightly colored eatery whose walls are dotted with colorful landscape prints. Signature maki rolls also make an appearance on the extensive menu, as do dinner entrees such as pan-seared salmon, vegetable udon, and grilled chicken teriyaki.'

  • Sushi Time
    Sushi Time: A User’s Guide Stripped-Down Sushi | Tokyo-Style Kitsch | Underground Dining (Literally) Sample Menu To start: tuna avocado tartare with a miso vinaigrette Special roll: Barbie roll—crab, avocado, and salmon, wrapped in thin-sliced lemon Dessert: black-sesame ice cream To drink: a flight of three sakes When to Go: Happy-hour discounts run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and you’ll probably have more luck getting a seat right away. While You Wait Try to spot all the vintage kids’ toys whose names have inspired special rolls such as the G.I. Joe and the Hello Kitty. Call dibs on an especially cute sake glass—waiters typically let you pick your own from a charmingly mismatched selection. Inside Tips This spot is also known as “Underground Sushi Time,” and it’s a little hard to spot. Head down the staircase tucked within the mini mall at its address. Reservations aren’t accepted, but if there’s a wait, try heading just upstairs to browse the eclectic selection at Books Inc.—it’s open until 10 p.m. Because of Sushi Time’s small scale, it’s a place for small groups and intimate conversation; parties larger than four may not be able to sit together. Critical Acclaim No. 5 on Business Insider’s list of the 10 Best Restaurants in San Francisco's Castro Neighborhood One of SFist’s 11 Best Sushi Restaurants in San Francisco Vocab Lesson Kenchin-style soup: a soup that incorporates hearty, all-vegan ingredients, including lots of root vegetables, tofu, and shiitake mushrooms. It originates from Japan’s Buddhist temple culture. Tsukune: Japanese chicken meatballs, often cooked on a skewer and covered in a sweet soy-based sauce. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before: Peruse the eclectic wares at A&G Merch, which sells everything from acacia-wood coffee tables to whale-shaped bottle openers (2279 Market Street). After: End the night with a seasonal cocktail and a game of pool at Blackbird (2124 Market Street).

  • Akiko's Restaurant
    Akiko’s Restaurant: A User’s Guide Award-Winning Sushi | Omakase Tasting Menu | Seafood Imported from Japan Sample Menu Noodle dish: tempura-chicken udon with onion, carrot, cabbage, and scallions A la Carte Sushi and Sashimi: Maine sea urchin Sushi Roll: volcano roll—spicy salmon, salmon skin, imitation crab, avocado, tempura flakes, scallions, and toasted sesame Nightly Changing Specialty: sustainable blue-fin tuna belly Know Your Ingredients According to The Wall Street Journal, the majority of Akiko’s seafood comes from the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. Many of the other items are sourced from local merchants or other Japanese cities. Inside Tips: If you’re a sushi aficionado, go with the omakase tasting menu, for which Chef Ricky Yap prepares up to 15 dishes designed to showcase his culinary creativity. It could include anything from king-salmon sashimi to Japanese abalone cooked sous-vide for six hours, which SF Gate detailed at length. Don’t look for a sign outside—there isn’t one. Instead, look for the huge yellow mural of a fish along the side wall. As owner Ray Lee told The Wall Street Journal, “We took off the sign because of the overwhelming foot traffic.” Due to the restaurant’s popularity and limited seating, it’s best to make a reservation, especially if you plan on visiting during peak dinner hours. Don’t confuse it with Akiko’s Sushi at 542 Mason Street. Though the owners of Akiko’s Restaurant did indeed open that eatery, they sold it more than a decade ago. While You’re in the Neighborhood Before:Stop by for some treats, many of which are imported from the UK, at Fiona’s Sweetshoppe (214 Sutter Street). Just be careful not to spoil your appetite. After:Stop by for a nightcap and a chat with one of the friendly bartenders at Rickhouse (http://www.rickhousebar.com/). If You Can’t Make It, Try This: The sashimi and specialty rolls at Sushi Toni (733 Bush Street), which also stocks a well-curated selection of Japanese saki.

  • Sushirrito
    The Three Faces of Sushirrito Rule-Breaking Sushi Don’t be fooled by the burrito-like presentation—each and every sushirrito contains classic and inventive sushi flavors, rolled up fresh with every order. Chefs prepare a wide array of these inventive riffs on sushi, including the Salmon Samba sushirrito—made with king salmon—and The Satori sushiritto, which features kona white fish with wasabi mayo and various veggies. They break sushi norms with other items on the menu, as well. For the Porkivore, for example, they spread mustard-seed mayo over oven-roasted pork belly. Whatever the fillings, though, chefs always add a generous helping of sushi rice that’s sourced from California growers. Convenience Folding sushi into a burrito-like form all comes down to convenience for founder Peter Yen. While working in San Francisco, Mr. Yen often wanted sushi for lunch. There were a couple of problems, though: fancy restaurants weren’t practical spots to enjoy an afternoon meal, and quick-service sushi places just weren’t up to snuff quality-wise. To find a remedy to this conundrum, Peter joined forces with chef Ty Mahler and came up with a novel concept: use a giant piece of nori like a tortilla and create a made-to-order, burrito-like meal stuffed with Asian and Latin flavors. Hence, the sushirrito was born. Customers can easily eat the handheld meal onsite, or store it in their briefcases while they climb the rappelling ropes back up to their offices. Sustainability Every piece of fish inside a sushirrito comes from Royal Hawaiian Seafood, a company committed to sustainability. That means steelhead trout arrives from a responsibly farmed containment system. Furthermore, fishers use single hooks to catch yellowfin tuna—ensuring no unintentional creatures wind up in the nets. Founder Peter Yen’s commitment to the environment, however, goes well beyond the ocean. He and his staff rely on compostable and biodegradable clamshell containers, and the design team at Gi Paoletti Design Lab used eco-friendly items when coming up with the restaurants’ decor.
