Thanks for the report.
One of the my favorite things there was his Hokkigai “surf clam” which I had the pleasure of enjoying on one of my first visit there in his new digs back in late 2011, but have not seen him serve it ever since (and I go quite frequently).

… are back! Summer truffles now in stock.
Do you know approx how many pieces in the $65 omakase?
By chance can anyone compare Kimagure in Pasadena vs Tanaka in Simi Valley with respect to QPR?
Experience and QPR: Tanaka > Kimagure
Thanks @ipsedixit. The Hokkigai sounds great; it seems maybe some of the more exotic / rarer fish aren’t as prevalent in the offerings these days.
I don’t know about the nigiri-only option (at $65), but the Hana option at $65 (w/ Seafood Salad, Sashimi and Sushi) had about 6 pieces of Sushi (in addition to the other items).
Had a FANTASTIC lunch here today
Forgot to take pic of starter (monkfish liver) and hamachi nigiri
Nice @tailbacku. What was your favorite piece today?
Definitely the Aji. Ike San said it was from Kyushu, Japan. Best piece of Aji I’ve ever had.
