Ginzu Japanese Restaurant

As most of you know, if you actually read my blog, I love, love, LOVE sushi.  And, I thought I had tasted the best and already written about it.  However, I was wrong my friends.  Dead wrong.

Last week whilst out with my friend, Far, (read her blog,), she took me to have some of the best sushi I've ever tasted in my entire life.  Ginzu Japanese Restaurant on San Felipe has made me a new woman.  We had so much food on the table we could have fed a third world country.  Nonetheless, my significant backside wasted no time in scouring down almost the whole feast.

The Spicy Tuna Tar-Tar was pure heaven.  I have had some Tuna Tar-Tar in my time, but NOTHING like this.  It came in a little bowl with tons of avocado and the texture/taste of the tuna was perfection.  I think I might have snorted like a pig while inhaling it, but whatever.

If rolls are your thing, they have plenty to choose from.  And, unlike most sushi restaurants where you have to get out a magnifying glass to get a good look at the picture and description, Ginzu's Sushi roll menu is huge and the pics are so big I could mount them above my fireplace.  Ok, that's exaggerating a little, but they are quite large pics and descriptions of the rolls and are very on point.  We shared the "Ginzu roll" and it was on fiyah! So spicy and so delish.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

We also had this cool Sake that was not like your typical Sake.  It had a milky flavor to it and tasted so dang good.  I give this place an "Ah-Mazing" for sure.

High Tail it to Ginzu today and thank me (or my friend, rather) for bringing it to your attention!
