On a short trip to San Francisco, we were really craving some good sushi, and more specifically, a good omakase at the counter. We found Ju-Ni which offers an omakase, where one chef serves a maximum of four guests, and they have three chefs total, offering 12 seats total, hence the name Ju-Ni that means twelve. We got served by Geoffrey Lee, the executive chef, and little did we know, this was going to be one of our best omakase to date. The restaurant is beautiful, and the sushi was spectacular, traditional but at the same time incorporating some modern nigiri like a frozen and shaved ankimo over ikura nigiri. It's no wonder they have one Michelin star.Some of our favorite pieces were:-Akami (lean bluefin tuna)-Frozen and shaved ankimo (monkfish liver) over ikura (salmon roe).-White soy cured king salmon.-Shirako (Cod Milt)
If you're on the hunt for the best sushi in San Francisco, you're in the right place.
