Sushi Tomi--Mountain View, CA

During the workweek, a frequent meeting place for my wife and I is Sushi Tomi in Mountain View off Castro. Today I enjoyed their lunch combination, where I chose the broiled saba (mackerel) and sashimi. Included was miso soup, more rice than one would need to go with the saba and sashimi and salad.

The highlight, of course, was the fish. The mackerel was tender, juicy, flavorful, abundant with fat and went well with rice. Also on the plate were six thick blocks of sashimi--three tuna and three salmon. They were fresh and rich in color.

Sushi Tomi over the years has been consistent and can even offer a pleasant surprise like today's mackerel. Get there before 11:45 for lunch on a weekday and you should be able to get a table without a wait. By the way, I also recommend their green tea, which is strong, hot and meant to be sipped.
