Itacho Japanese Restaurant

Ita-cho? Ita-NO-t so much.

Dinner here was a spur of the moment decision. We drove by, saw the place and said sure, why not?

I guess our eyes are bigger than our stomach cuz we ordered a shitload of food.

-Salmon Sashimi- this was one of the freshest salmon I have ever had. It was perfect and tender and melted in my mouth like butter.

Spicy yellowtail roll- pretty damn good too and actually had a spicy kick

Unagi- not bad.. good size, kinda charred on the ends.. I think this is the new trend?! I keep eating charred Unagi every where I go.

Yellowtail sushi- eh.. it was ok

Cold Zaru soba- wtf? The noodles were not that good and the dipping sauce was just plain gross. It wasn't the typical soba dipping sauce and just tasted weird. This was a disappointment. Also, wtf to the quail egg being raw? Raw quail egg = no thanks. I will never eat raw eggs. They should have said this on the menu, cuz I ordered this dish so I could have the damn quail egg.

Fried octopus- good and crispy with tentacles.. Me likey

Steamed white fish with veggies- this was pretty damn good. But the veggies were better than the fish.. Fish was kinda bland, and the sauce it came with to dip in was so sour, it was like dipping into lemon juice. Blech!

Service was okay. *shrugs*So.. given all this, would I come back? Maybe, but I wouldnt make a special trip out here. Oh ya, the bathroom was kinda cool with the mirror and flower.. see pic.

you win some, you lose some. no one has a perfect 100% batting average. i think when you do about .500, you're already better than most others...

check your email yo.
