Sudachi -CLOSED-

Sudachi – Polk Gulchimage_1

My buddy ended up turning 21 last night and he wanted to try out some sake bombs…

Sudachi has beer and sake for a mere $2 on Saturday nights, so it seemed like the perfect place to kick the night off. The restaurant was packed with a young crowd. I can’t say I was surprised, considering it was $2 sake night. Sudachi has specials every night of the week. Monday is All you can drink sake for $10. Tuesday is all you can drink draft beer and Saturday is $2 Sake bombs! 

I believe we came on the right night! There were two projectors and two televisions so that everyone had a line of sight to a screen at all times. This might seem distracting, but it really didn’t detract from the experience. Even though it was extremely busy and there were multiple TVs on, the noise wasn’t bad.

The rest of the gang ordered a myriad of sushi rolls, rice plates, and katsu. We received our food in a very random order. It worked out alright. However, my roommate got a plate of beef katsu just as everyone was finishing so he had to rush to finish it. The general consensus was that everyone enjoyed their food, which was the important part!

At last, my food arrived after 2 sake bombs. I was more than ready to chow down! I started off with the octopus tentacle. It was chewy and seemed fresh. Although I couldn’t tell you what old octopus tastes like; I have to say, it was the best Cephalopod I’ve had in some time.

Next came the sea urchin. To my knowledge, I have not tried sea urchin before this occasion, so I really had no idea what to expect. I thought it might be a little chewy like the octopus. Boy was I wrong! The sea urchin had the texture of…a melted marshmallow. It tasted a little salty and a little fishy. I didn’t mind the taste at all, but the texture was very strange. My friend that tried it with me said she liked it, but I couldn’t tell if she was lying or not! I’d be more than willing to try both rolls again, but I think I’ll start off with the sea urchin next time.

I’m really glad that we celebrated at Sudachi. It was the perfect venue. Great food, good company, and a great sushi bar atmosphere. If you don’t want to knock elbows with a bunch of “kids’, try going here on a day without any specials.

Dinosaurs #2


Dinosaurs #2 – Sunset

I’m not 100% sure if the first Dinosaurs died out or if this is simply its offspring. This one is located on Ocean Avenue between 19th Ave and Junipero Serra Blvd.

My Vietnamese friend wanted to try this place out, because he had heard good things about the restaurant Dinosaurs. This place is really tiny and is housed in a
small shack. I was tempted to ask what the rent was on the place, but I figured they wouldn’t know.

I ordered the sandwich special of the day, which contained three different types of pork, carrots, jalapenos, cilantro, and a little onion.

It was only $5 and I have to say it was worth every penny. All the ingredients super-fresh and delectable. I was especially impressed with how fresh the bread was. It’s the staple of any sandwich, but it’s too often an afterthought.

Overall the food was great, the price awesome, and the service impeccable. I was offered water and Sriracha, twice at no extra charge. My buddy got the same sandwich and equally enjoyed it as much as I did. I will definitely be coming back here again for a cheap yet scrumptious sandwich.
