南加美食:Ootoro Sushi Japanese Restaurant - Walnut, CA


羅蘭崗 Rowland Heights   是一個同時有著許多華裔、韓裔與日本裔美國人居住的城市,多元的飲食文化在這裡蓬勃的發展,知名的中式和韓式料理餐廳更是不勝枚舉,但說到日式飲食,在查理心中最具代表性,以精緻手法和新鮮頂級食材為號招的高級壽司店卻一直從缺。在多次造訪位於 Alhambra 的壽司名店 Toros Japanese Fusion Seafood ,與老闆閒聊後,得知他有想在東區開設以 Toros 為樣本,但路線更加精緻的壽司店,查理也一直期待著他實現這夢想的時刻,能夠在離家不遠的地方,能夠品嚐到以頂級新鮮魚生為食材,透過精細手法和創意捏製成的美味壽司。


新開的店面位於一個以販售高檔精品為主的廣場裡頭,以木條裝飾的餐廳外部,帶有讓人想入內一探究竟的吸引力,保留了顧客隱密的用餐空間。壽司吧臺冰箱裡頭,食材有條不絮地擺放著。


不同於一般壽司店那種古樸親切的風格,現代感設計結合著西式與日式的元素,建構出帶有現代感俐落裝潢的餐廳風格。


首先登場,讓人激賞不已的白身魚三連發,一直是這裡師傅慣用的出菜順序。在細緻的調味帶領之下,微微的酸度使的魚肉的甜度更加彰顯,讓鯛魚等這些平時口味較不顯著的食材成功地扮演著激發起食慾的角色。


綜合的生魚片拼盤緊接在三道白身魚之後,水章魚、烏貝、還有經過灼烤處理的銀皮魚(尖梭魚?)是這道菜色的亮點。加上檸檬汁吃起來酸中帶甜,鮮嫩之中又略有纖維彈性的水章魚,可是別的地方少見的食材。


新鮮的甜蝦,在處理完後多了冰鎮的手續,讓蝦肉更加緊實富有彈性,耐人尋味的清甜滋味與彈性口感,吃了一隻還想再吃。鮪魚煮物雖然入味但口感略乾。


海膽是這裡最常出現的食材之一,高品質的新鮮海膽,在特調醬汁的調味之下,帶有類似日本馬糞海膽的甜度,搭配熊本生蠔更是言語難以形容的海洋風味。


頂級的鮪魚是另外一項招牌的賣點。鮪魚赤身、中腹、上腹肉在特調醬汁與新鮮山葵的提味之下,從淡到濃,油脂的豐美程度帶來不同感受的甜味。


以噴槍灼烤的鮪魚大腹肉,油脂美味被火焰完全的釋放,在大腹肉的濃郁甜度之外更多了誘人的香氣。


善於組合不同食材與加入特殊調味的精巧手法延續著,帶來不同於一般壽司店的美味。 白肉魚包裹著紫蘇葉與海膽一起放入口中,綿密的海膽滋味帶有魚肉的彈性與紫蘇香氣,一般少見的壽司捏製手法帶來不同的美食體驗。


滿肚子的魚生壽司之後,再來碗以甜蝦頭現煮的味噌湯,鮮甜濃郁的蝦頭精華與味噌融合成口齒留香的美味。吃到這裡算是 omakase 內容的告一段落,感覺肚裡還有空間,請師傅繼續捏製,水針魚跟小鯽魚等銀皮魚食材,只要店家有供應,查理就會想點來吃,這種銀皮魚無論是用醋醃製或是直接生食,是最能更看出一家壽司店功力的食材之一。


鮑魚厚實強韌的口感,在細緻的刀工之下,變得富有彈性與嚼勁,在口中感受著貝類特殊的海洋風味甜度。


吃到這裡,簡單的甜品已經不足以安撫因美食而雀躍的心情,在查理心中,羅蘭崗一直從缺的頂級壽司美味,就由今晚口中吃到的壽司美妙滋味,一道接著一道地慢慢填補起來了。

  3. I don't eat fresh raw fish (sashimi) before. I only eat sushi and tempura. Since I ate here last week, I have to tell you that it changed my view about sashimi because of their high and outstanding quality. I will bring my friends and family here. We have to spread out the good news for others to enjoy.

    2. Hi, is the 130$ same portion as the $95 special? also, I saw that you have been to many great sushi place, which one would you recommend if you can only choose 1? or can you give me your ranking from your first choice to the last? thank you very much for sharing your experience!

  5. I used to communicate with the chef before eating, so the sushi I had might be different than regular omakase menu, also the cost. I wonder if you can tell me your budget, so that I can give you a good recommendation. Again, thank you for visiting my blog! =)

    1. You blog has great information, I thank you! my budget is $150-$200 per person, however, for really good ones, I am willing to spend $300 per person. So what do you recommend?

    2. For $150 and under: Miura (highly recommend, reasonable price but very good quality), sushi shibucho, Kiyokawa, Ohshima, Kanpachi Sushi, Sushi Ichi, Sushi Murasaki, and for $150-$200: Ootoros, sushi sushi, and if your budget is more than $300, Urasawa is a must try ($375/ppl). For $150-$200 range, I believe that Sushi Zo and Moru Sushi are both good places to go to enjoy high quality sushi, but I haven't tried them yet. Also, I heard that San Shi Go and nana san are both good sushi joint for $150 and under range.
