I have been craving sushi and last night I finally was able to satisfy the craving at Sushi Oto in San Diego.
Sushi Oto earns a 5 out of 7 on my sushi restaurant rating system. 6 out of 7 is the best ever achieved and that was in a strip mall in San Ramon California next to the Place to Bead.
How does one get 7 out of 7, here is the system
Great sushi 1 point
Round chopsticks 1 point
Miso salad dressing 1 point
Ambience 1 point
Nigori Sake 1 point
Mocchi ice cream 1 point
Coffee mocchi ice cream bonus point
It appears that miso dressing is a Santa Cruz only offering. My two favorite Santa Cruz restaurants Takara and Shogun have a creamy miso salad dressing.
There are quite a few who get 5 out of 7, but 6 out 7 is rare and 7 out of 7 has never happened.
But I did enjoy the evening. And if you know of a 7 out of 7 let me know!
