Omakase Porn–Zen Sushi, Sacramento CA

by Sarah on March 12, 2010

I like to go to Zen Sushi.  That’s where Lou is.

I always start with gomae, a salad of blanched spinach with a sesame and soy dressing.  It’s delicious and perfect to begin with.  After that, I just eat whatever Lou hands to me.  It’s not cheap but it’s a 4-star experience.  Sushi shouldn’t be cheap anyway–good fresh fish isn’t cheap, man.

This dish is soft tofu and asparagus with a white miso dressing.  I could eat this every day.

Hamachi toro.  I love some soft white underbelly.

Lou concoction.  I’ve unfortunately forgotten what the fish slices are, but they encase snow crab and asparagus and are sitting on ponzu I think.

One of my favorites, Lou’s preparation of ocean trout.

I stopped at the ocean trout, but G forged ahead and was rewarded for his stamina with some aji–Spanish makerel.  He loves it.  I don’t love it, which is why he always ends up with it last. This is a small fish and one order is half the fish.  Sometimes Lou will deep-fry the skeleton and serve it like a chip with lemon and course salt.  That I like.

Looking for a 4 star sushi experience in Sacramento?  Look no further.  Don’t order from the menu.  Just say “omakase, please”.
