A friend recently told me that Taka-O is her favorite Japanese restaurant. I had been wanting to try it, so that night Jeff and I sat at the sushi bar…and were very disappointed.
We started with the Oh No Roll – a crunchy roll topped with seared albacore and a special house tataki sauce. It was okay, not drowning in sauce as were all the other rolls we sampled. We ordered some sashimi – salmon, yellow tail and eel. The eel was tasty but the salmon and yellow tail weren’t as fresh as I would have liked.
I’m always surprised when I have a bad meal. 9 times out of 10, I like what I’m eating. I guess I’m easily pleased. Well, I hate to say it, but Taka-O did not please me.
