Mo mo mo mo Japanese at Shi Mo mo mo mo

Ricky Lee Jones is playing on KQED. Strange. She's so old now.

A man of discerning tastes, Shi Mo Japanese Restaurant is one of Dan's favorite sushi places. It's just down the street from my place on Clement and 25th. 2339 Clement St. 415-752-4422. Open 5:00pm - Midnight =-D (Tues- Sat) and 5:00pm - 10:30pm (Sun, Mon).

Ankimo (Monkfish Liver). Dan dubs this "Fois Gras of the Sea" It was interesting but wasn't too big on it.

Amaebi Heads.

"Moon Roll." Kevin was telling us an interesting story where the Japanese government wanted to regulate what was being called "Sushi" across the globe. Secret tester agents would give them a government approved seal to display outside their restaurants as proof they make the grade. I think this is more so for the Japanese tourist's benefit more than anyone since if Americans are going to certain restaurants already, they will continue going however official the food is. Apparently one local Sushi Chef in my neighbourhood (I wish I knew the place!) occasionally gets fed up and refuses to make patron's order of Philadelphia Rolls frustrated his customers would want something like cream cheese in their sushi. If they order it, some managers will put what's popular on the menu.

Mine of Vegetarian Roll (Yam Tempura with Avocado and Cucumber), Kanpachi (Amberjack), & Hamachi (Yellowtail).

Chawan Mushi - Steamed egg, chicken & prawn in a cup.

This hung right over our table.

And a cool breeze forced Kevin to put on his hat. There is a strange turtle climbing the wall behind him. Trying to escape or something.

Hehe. Yeah, it's fake. But the picture looked really weird without it since that was what I was trying to do.

Afterwards was a Wii Sports session. Wii Bowling has a funny mode where they keep adding more and more pins for you to bowl.
