Sushi @ Honolulu Country Club

Recently my friend was back in town and he has an uncle who is a sushi chef at the Honolulu Country Club. He suggested that we go visit him and who am I to object to such a suggestion. This was my first visit to the Honolulu Country Club in quite some time and I was curious to see how sushi at a “country club” could be.

We were served a appetizer of Mirugai (海松貝; Geoduck clam). It was served chopped into cubes with a ponzu style sauce with a hint of mirin.



My friend’s uncle asked what we would like to have first and we both answered “ENGAWA!” Yum!



Next up was Hirame (平目; Flounder).



My friend’s uncle then brought us out a Hamachi Kama (鰤鎌; Yellowtail collar).



He then served us Ika (烏賊; Squid).



And lastly we had Mirugai (海松貝; Geoduck clam).



Everything that night was good especially since I was a bit apprehensive about eating sushi at a “country club”. I’d like to thank my friend for treating me to that delicious meal of sushi and I would like to thank his uncle for his hospitality. Check out my friend’s uncle, John Noboru Yamao @ Honolulu Country Club and tell him that Jupiter sent you.

kirk,

Yes it was good. The funny thing is previously I wasn't a big "kai" person. Now more and more I love all types of "kai". It started with hotategai...

Hi Jup,

That sushi looks so good. I almost feel like I have to eat some right now. Unfortunately, I won't be able to have some for a while. *sigh*
