    Pictures from one of my favorite sushi restaurants in NYC. Best rice in the U.S. IMO, and perfect portions.

    1st row: two kinds of tamago, otoro roll
    2nd row: different cuts of tuna (otoro, chutoro, maguro, etc), hamachi toro
    3rd row: hamachi, sake, another type of sake, white tuna, mackerel
    4th row: squid, some sort of clam, not sure, uni
    5th row: different types of eel

    2nd picture: 8 pieces of otoro (yum!)
    3th picture: 3 orders of flash fried eel spine (excellent)
    4th picture: seaweed salad (6 different kinds)
    5th picture: fruit dessert (kiwi, mango, and asian pear)
    6th picture: vanilla (?) ice cream topped with red bean
    7th picture: bill, well worth it obv.

    masa is better

    actually, i was pretty pissed off on my last visit to Yasuda - the fish was not up to their usual standards (which is pretty good.) even the rice was off; and Yasuda himself was serving me.

    i think it's a good place for a quick lunch; but if i want serious sushi, i just bend over and go to Masa now.


    do you like Kuruma? (their rice sucks, but the sashimi is very good.)

    I must try this place out and Chuck, I agree masa is amazingggg!

    Me and member Slavik went to Kuruma the night of the Monarchy show! He loved it but I didn't, was good quality and fresh fish but just way too plain as a whole! It didn't wow me by any means.

    Haven't been to Kuruma, but been to Masa a few times. IMO sushi yasuda is a place you can eat at a few times a week, but I don't have the bankroll to eat at masa that often Not too many pure sushi places like yasuda around anymore, i don't care for the nobu/morimoto type places

    i absolutely agree do you normally sit at a table? if so, try sitting at the bar and order omakase (assuming you can eat everything.)

    for a shameless plug, check out my Sushiso Masa review from Tokyo - even makes Masa (NYC) second-tier:
    ChuckEats blog Sushiso Masa (Nishiazabu, Tokyo) - Nirvana


    ill - kuruma is amazing for the sashimi but my last visit was also a little lacking so quality is not as consistently high as i wish it was. i'm surprised though - you could rip out a workout and then eat 15 courses of sashimi - that should get you to about 50% of your necessary protein intake

    No, we usually do the omakase at the bar, either in front of yasuda or the chef in the right corner, but this time we came in with no reservations, and the bar was full, so we were just happy to get a table

    I hope to make a Japan trip this summer, but not sure if I will get the to get the 'real' experience being non-japanese.

    Have you eaten at any places in Boston? There aren't any 'pure' sushi places like yasuda here, but a few places (two) that serve really good ingredients (oishii & o ya). At oishii, I get the stuff that no one else does, ie fugu, tuna check, shark, lobster sashimi, real wasabi root, certain mushrooms, and some stuff most people consider nasty The chef/owner knows I'm willing to try anything, so he'll source stuff *just* for me a few other long time customers. I will post some pictures of the special stuff I get when I get home. Some interesting things...
