My Hubby and I love to try out different restaurants, usually when he gets a day off. Ahi Ahi Sushi Bar & Grill was on our to-try list for a while but we haven’t done so until recently. The only reason we hesitated was the location. Check out the address and the map and you’ll see why. This restaurant is kind of tucked inside a plaza, and not too close to the freeway. But if you live or work nearby, I highly recommend that you to give this place a try.
First up, we order this Fire Fly Squid from the Chef’s Special menu. It was a refreshing and fun appetizer to start a meal.
Who doesn't love Popcorn Lobster Tempura? This is tempura done right. The crust is crispy and light along with juicy and tender lobster inside.
This Chillean Seabass Misoyaki was my favorite from the whole meal. The outside is slightly charred and packed with the wonderful miso aroma. The inside is super moist and juicy! A must-try for sure.
We also tried the Taco Yaki (Octopus Balls). This is one of my favorite street food from Japan. These were great, and very traditional, just how I like them.
We also ordered the Pacific Surf Clam Sushi from the Chef’s Special menu. Unfortunately, there’s nothing special about them at all! They are fresh, and that’s about it.
There were many rolls to choose from at Ahi Ahi Sushi. We've tried this Foothill Ranch Roll. Which is spicy tuna, mango and masago (fish eggs) on fish tempura roll, mustard and House Special Sauce. It’s wonderful and I love the sweet flavor from the mango that balanced really well with the spicy tuna.
If you like sushi, this one is quite special and not something that you’d see everyday. It’s the Shrimp Boat! Which contains sushi Ebi (cooked shrimp), crab meat, masago, and (raw) quail egg yolk on top. It’s decadent and I love anything with an raw egg yolk on top!
Last but not least, we've tried the Sexy Salmon Roll. Ingredients are salmon sashimi on spicy tuna roll, pickle wasabi, green Tobiko and Ponzu Sauce. The pickle wasabi was amazing. It was just a tiny dot on top but it brought out the flavors of the whole roll and took it to the next level. I highly recommended you to try this one.
I hope you enjoy today’s post and review. Please stay tuned for more yummy reviews and recipes.
