Chef’s choice sushi plate, from Shiro’s. Bottom row: salmon, mackerel, tuna. Middle: toro, marinated tuna, geoduck. Top: white albacore roll, yellowtail, and can’t remember the last one but it had thinly sliced scallions underneath. Oops.
This might have been the best sushi I’ve ever had.  We also had the Belltown Poke appetizer, as well as a half dozen raw Kumamoto oysters. All outstanding.  We will definitely be hitting this place up regularly.
toro sushi

The hubs and I went out for a much-needed date night last night at our favorite local sushi place. They had blue fin toro on special so we decided to try an order of nigiri.  It was a bit disappointing, as there was a tough fibrous strip running through the entire length of it that made it almost impossible to chew.  Normally, I wouldn’t have complained, but considering how expensive it was, when our server asked how it was, I couldn’t hold back. The chef felt bad, so he sent us this plate to make up for it.

They referred to it as a special toro roll, but it was actually a combination of finely chopped toro, green onion. a touch of ginger(?), and I think a little mayo on top of nigiri-style rice. Also had a tiny dollop of hot sauce on top. Super yummy and definitely made up for the chewy toro earlier.
