18062231 No.18062231 [Reply] [Original]

A couple months ago I was on a trip to SF and decided to visit Wako for their prix fixe menu (which ended up with several extras being ordered)

Some kind of Sake. I was told it was 'Tenth-degree'

'House made sesame tofu with sea urchin, fresh wasabi and dashi sauce'

I did not eat the urchin

From Left to Right:

Some kind of Fried scallop thing, something that might have been Abalone, more Tofu in dashi, and what I believe to be a small serving of Steamed egg custard with pike eel, shiitake, shrimp, misuba, sea urchin & smoked trout roe

I particularly enjoyed the tomato with the bit of mild cheese

I did eat the urchin this time. I liked it so much I got 2 more bowls

On the one hand, I feel like michelin-stars are a total gimmick. On the other hand, the best food I'd ever had was from a 1 star michelin place.

'A5 Grade Japanese Beef'

It was tasty, we got another order, but nothing mindblowing like people say. I've had better 'Wagyu' from a tiny grill place in Kyoto for like $5

The prixe fixe menu was $95 per pre-tax, and the Sake was maybe $90. The rest was on addons. desu $280/person wasn't that bad, considering the quality of the food and service at the place and the fact that it was actually a backup choice. The waitress was very nice, but I do wish she spoke better English - 8/10 would go again if someone else pays

A lot of them are, but this one seems pretty deserving. I try to judge restaurants outside of how many stars they have or which chef's name is associated with it; the best food I've had has been at extremely well-run places that don't go for official nods

And you just outed your own bullshit.
You aren’t going to find anything like that in Japan for $5.

Okay, maybe it was $10 then. Some inconsequential amount. It was at that covered market in Kyoto, Nishiki or something. I also got balls there

That looked good OP but I don't get how real japs eat kaigun curry and ramen IRL. Are these places a scam to fool gaijins?

Sorry, I forgot. Now I know what is roe of some kind, and what is sea urchin, until I forget again

Tasted pretty good

I did have this excellent burger the next day. It was super duper

That place lost its star a few years back, I heard. I've been there (pre-star hype), this was better than that

They didn’t check, no place did.

I went crawling through USS Hornet with a bunch of old dudes, including a private tour of cramped command spaces, then spent the rest of the week in work meetings, and I didn’t catch anything. My boss got a bad case of Rona, though. He was out for two weeks

At some point it’s diminishing returns, but I didn’t feel like it was a giant waste of money or anything
