issian {a food review}

{1. shiitake mushrooms 2. HUGE tuna collar 3. duck no robatayaki = BEST duck dish I’ve ever had}

When I was asking around for their favorite sushi/japanese place in Seattle, my friend Stacy recommended Issian {one of her all-time favorite places to eat}. So N. and I decided to go there for my birthday on Friday.

Well, I was not disappointed (except for the octopus w/ wasabi salad). And my absolute favorites are their sashimi and duck robatayaki. I’m definitely going back to try more things on their menu (plus more duck)!

In a nutshell?

+ fresh sashimi
+ good kushiyaki
+ cheap prices
+ great service

    The photos of the food look so good!!!! Gorgeous photos! I went to Seattle with my husband many years ago and went to my friend’s favorite sushi restaurant there. I can’t remember the name! It was sooooo good! I remember thinking the fish was so fresh and absolutely delicious in Seattle. At the time we lived in land locked Austin, Texas, so it felt extra special to have sushi near the water! Robatayaki looks mouth watering! I love sashimi, too. Even though I am Japanese, I favor the American style sushi.

  4. YumO!
