Furusato Sushi Bar, Waikiki

February 3, 2008

On February 1, 2008, about noon, Linda and I were walking back along the beachfront in Waikiki after visiting the aquarium. We figured that we could find an interesting restaurant for lunch among the many along this stretch. But the selection was very dismal until we saw one that looked like it belonged in Japan, incongruously niched under the Hyatt Hotel across from the public beach by the Waikiki Police Station. We had one of the best sushi meals we have ever enjoyed anywhere.

Linda had a piece of uni (sea urchin) sushi and an unagi (smoked eel) baguette(no photo, but it looked like my dragon roll without the avocado.)

I had the Dragon B, which was:md.jpg

Three pieces of ahi sashimi and three of yellowtail sashimi;


A cup of enhanced miso soup, served last as in Japan.

The quality of everything was extraordinary.

    Wow!! Given that Linda and Michael often enjoy Japanese food in some very fine places and given that I don’t know Michael to be one who is easily given to superlatives, that must have been some sushi.

    I expect that it will make it into the 2008 fantasy dinner.

    It also proves that the best doesn’t always come from eateries that are fancy, highly regarded, expensive, or the rage. But I also suspect that the excellent dishes were enhanced by the pleasure of having found the place by chance. Some of our most memorable travel and dining experiences involved those that were not planned or recommended. Sponteneity and adventurism sometimes produce their own just rewards. And how satisfying they are.
