It was with great anticipation today that we brought home a super sushi platter from Nijiya Market in the Mountain View Shopping Center. Order a day ahead of time and for $40 you get a platter (which itself is plastic but suitable for keeping) with 67 pieces of sushi, nigiri and California roll.
Was it a good value? It's debatable. For $40 Sushi 85 or Masa Sushi, both also in Mountain View, can come close to filling you up just as this platter did (with one boy eating more than 20 pieces alone, this platter didn't fill the rest of us up till our bellies burst, but that wasn't the aim either). However, if it's an abundance of raw fish, rice and seaweed that you're after and you want to escape taxes and tips, we can't think of a buy around us that's clearly better.
What went without debate was the deliciousness of the platter. It even smelled great. The nigiri (salmon, tuna and shrimp) was so popular among the four of us the kids made sure they were divided evenly. Not only will we be repeat customers, we're already plotting to figure out when's the next time we can order a "super" again.
