Oh, another Yelp favorite. Geta Sushi is your typical hole-in-the-wall that people want to keep a secret so the whole town won’t form a queue up the streets of Oakland. And these street are sure cute – it wasn’t a happenin’ place originally, but now we’re seeing stores called Posh Bagel and the Bees Knees.

Lots of people come get takeout, so I was surprised that there were a good 7 or 8 tables in the building where you could eat. I was expecting an upturned pail and an ironing board (<3 Bakesale Betty’s) or something…but this is pretty legit. They have decent sushi – keep in mind I still have no conception of sushi quality – for CHEAP. I do have a conception of our numerical system.

I have been craving seaweed! And corn nuts. But I only have pictures of the healthier one, how convenient. I felt like vinegar, but next time I’ll probably get the thin, neon green kind instead. It tasted like everything my mom has ever made – Mama Beans likes pickling. Comfort food!

Anyway, commence sushi overload:

somethingefi roll (), seaweed roll (), and spicy tuna roll ()

Yes, marvel at the prices. This is in the Bay Area! Not Wisconsin, or the 1900s!

All four of us loved our rolls and especially the sticky, chewy rice that was seasoned and sprinkled with sesame. Hungry just thinking about it. Perhaps the low prices have rendered us delusional but it was just as delicious as any of the standard rolls in other places. I obvs can’t say anything about the sashimi or fancier fare though.

These sushi chefs know the way to my heart – my veggie roll was packed with avocado , along with carrots, lettuce, and cucumber. We liked that the spicy tuna roll and many others included avocado without charging more, which is rare. Go Geta!

C got super excited to see a daily special combo of salmon and gyoza, two of her favorite things. Very impressive amount of gyoza when we were only expecting two, and the salmon was small but she seemed happy with it. The salad has a miso-based dressing which I prefer over carrot/ginger.

I love the simplicity of Japanese food! This place is rave-worthy and we all wish we lived closer.
