Sushi Tomi

For dinner, Jonathan and I went to a sushi place downtown (off Dana), called Sushi Tomi (make sure you click on English so you can read the site, LoL). The place was packed, even though it was Sunday night at 7:30. We waited about ten minutes for a table, but it was well worth the wait. We both had the combination special, I chose sashimi and gyoza, Jonathan had the sashimi and the spicy tuna roll. We were first served salads, with the most delicious dressing. We couldn't quite pinpoint the taste, although it was very creamy and had sesame seeds. I thought it tasted a little like bacon and parmesan, but clearly that wasn't it. After that was the miso soup, which was not as salty as some miso, so I enjoyed it quite well. We hardly had time to finish it before our entrees arrived. My gyoza (deep-fried pork potstickers) were delicious, although I liked them better with soy sauce than with the wine-vinegary sauce with which they are served. There were six pieces, which matched Jonathan's six pieces of spicy tuna roll. And boy, were they spicy! Neither of us had previously had anything similar. This tuna was sort of ground up and made very spicy. The sashimi was eight pieces, three each of tuna and salmon, and two of another fish which greatly resembled tuna, but was a little darker and a little tougher (and also a little fattier). It was all very good, and I was definitely stuffed by the time I had my orange section as a finisher. We both agreed that it was a good deal, and might be returning before long.
