Zushi Puzzle

I have found the best place in San Francisco (so far) for sashimi. Go sit at the sushi bar at Zushi Puzzle, headed by a friendly Chinese fellow named Roger, and you'll taste what I mean. The fish was incredibly fresh -- sometimes we had the pleasure of watching Roger pull out the whole fish and slice it open in front of us to serve. Not only was the fish fresh, but we also got to try some "exotic" fish varieties that you wouldn't normally find at your regular sushi joint. So exotic that I forgot the names of some of the fish, so I apologize.

Hamachi and salmon



Butterfish (AMAZING!)

Butter Face Roll (spicy tuna and cucumber topped with butterfish and spicy sauce)

Some roll with hamachi, avocado, and unagi

And of course, no sushi meal is complete without ... uni!

ooh, yes those pictures speak to me too! I'd probably never pick them blindly from a list based on their name, but I'm always looking for recommendations!
