Kiriko - A Picture Story


#1


#2

I think I gotta go back for dinner. My lunch at Kiriko looked nothing like that at all. Not that it was bad, mind you. Certainly not at that level.


#3

What camera are you using?


#4

galaxy s6


#5

Dinner omakase? If so, how much did it run?


#6

Yes, plus supplements. I paid $245 OTD.


#7

Per head?


#8

Yes


#9

Yow.


#10

That’s why I stopped going to Kiriko. At that pricepoint it’s no brainer Mori or Shunji for me. There was a time where I could get out around $100 at Kiriko and thus it had a niche in my rotation. After a couple of $180pp omakases I had to stop going.

Nice, camera phones continue to progress. My iPhone 5s took great shots for its time but can’t hold a candle to the new phones. Getting an iPhone 6s soon. Looking forward to trying that out and seeing how it compares.


#12

Good lighting doesn’t hurt either


#13

I concur. To me it’s definitely a couple fucking notches below Mori, Shunji, Zo and even Go Smart.

Except for and you know the proverbial fucking drill: my tamagoyaki. And those blue crab hand rolls.

And thats no fucking joke.

When Kiriko is on their A game, it’s hard to beat their combination of quality and creativity. But they are wildly inconsistent, not to mention having to deal with the UCLA/Sawtelle clientele while eating your $200 omakase. That being said, I have a very soft spot for Ken-san and crew.


#15

And there’s my tamagoyaki.

Nuff fucking said.


#16

Likewise. I spent years feasting at Mori, for whom I have a spot spot as well, but my first choice has been Kiriko for a while now.


#17

so true
