As I will be away to France from August 27th thru September 7th far away from the sea (in Bourgogne), I paid a visit (with my worse half) to our favourite sushi bar/restaurant Sushi Ko in Shizuoka CIty.

We had the usual fare described in other postings, but three orders stood out:
1) Hot Scallops Roll which I will dedicate to Allison. The vegetables on top are « menegi »/very thin leeks cut just after sprouting. The scallops are mainly seasoned with mayonnaise, chili pepper and flying fish roe (« tobiko »)

2) « sanma no nigiri »/mackerel pike topped with grated fresh ginger and chopped thin leeks. Dedicated to Barnaby.

3) « Ikura no Gunkan »/Salmon roe in gunkan (rice ball iside dry seaweed). Notice the extravagant service! Dedicated to Patrick although I wonder if he would appreciate it!
