M and I made a stop by Umi Sake House a couple weeks ago. We wanted to check out their Happy Hour specials. This was our first visit since the pre-opening party we’d attended in late May. Everything had been so great that night – would they be able to maintain the quality during real service?
And the answer is definitely YES! And, the Happy Hour is such a great value that it will be hard not to go back again! We both ordered Sushi Set B, which was four beautiful pieces of sushi with a side of a lovely seaweed salad. The pieces were very generous (although that might have been slightly influenced by our sitting right at the sushi bar and talking with the chef; it’s hard to tell) and it was beautifully presented.
Sushi Set B contains one each tuna, salmon, yellowtail and albacore. And - sit down for this – it’s only $5! What an amazing bargain. Sushi Set A adds eel to the mix. There are plenty of other options available on the Happy Hour menu – various rolls, tempura and short ribs, just to name a few options. A couple of beers and sakes are also on the Happy Hour menu.
If you haven’t yet tried this new establishment I really suggest you check it out soon. I think their menu and quality make them a place to visit at any time but Happy Hour certainly is an extra special bonus!
