Kiji Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar Coupons and Deals
BBE fell in love at the bar of Kiji Sushi, not just because owner and chef Eddie Hong educated us in his finest selection of sakes (regarded by experts as the best in the Bay), but because it’s where the magic happens. Chefs Haruo Komatsu and Geoffrey Lee make art of sushi and sashimi, brightening fresh cuts of sustainable catches with dollops of handmade sauces and kicky garnishes to reveal surprising, irresistible flavor combinations. Many are improvised on the spot, like Komatsu’s tuna, wasabi, and truffle oil staged on crisp seaweed. The team woos BBE subscribers with an exclusive off-the-menu concoction entitled “New Style Salmon.” Fresh ginger, green onions, chopped shiso leaf, and tempura beads elevate fired salmon sashimi, topped by a zesty one-two punch of yuzu kosho and spicy ponzu sauce. We’re head over heels.
